Dear Suzuki,
Your brand means too much to me, so please do not return to Moto GP, unless you have the required budget to do so. I do not wish to see you wallow around mid-field or further back, with a questionable rider, and a poorly developed chassis.
However, please do come back if you are able to properly develop the bike and you are able to attract a tier one rider.
Sincerely,
A Fan

"...Yamaha uses an Inline layout (with a 'big bang' firing order) ..."

It does?

No. Yamaha M1 uses a LONG BANG firing order.

Big Bang was ONLY a V4 NSR-500 that fired all 4 cylinders in about 70degrees of crank rotation.

Love to see Suzuki come back but I fear they will be way behind yamaha, honda and ducati in researce as those bikes will have 2 seasons under there belt by 2014,I'm wondering If Factory BMW will also build a GP Bike,they said this season that once tHey became competive in WSBK they would try there hand at motogp,if any company would have a race budget it would be BMW.

Surely we should welcome ALL new teams to MGP - no debate. However, the rules and regulations will almost certainly have changed again by 2014 so what Suzuki is outlining now will have to be tempered by future rule changes. IMHO, WSBK rules will also change to increase the gap in both perceived and real performance of the WSBK/MGP bikes. A bit of topic but everyone is saying how good the racing is in WSBK is at the moment compared to MGP.....and I agree. However, I don't agree that all is rosy behind the scenes at WSBK. Money is still very tight and will continue to be for the near future so both series will have to take a long hard look at where they are going and be realistic regarding their objectives. My bet.........downshifting the WSBK spec' and (sadly but understandably) all prototypes being banned from MGP.
