i hope they finally engage the pace, Suzies always push hard, i like it, and also near his filosofy I4...Nobuatsu Aoki still with them i not sure

problem maybe comes from engine long life and fuel restriction, if not, for sure they were more up those years with Bautista...if they come back, hope he engage Bautista again...and Vermeulen...and least some good-hard-honest racing rider at their line...

they should re-assemble the old lucky strike team.
Hire a yank for a 10 year contract while giving a uk rider 2-3 races before dumping them and doing it all over again with another under supported sap.
Lets hope not eh?

They have always had a good superbike/streetbike as an inline four it was silly to even try to run a V4.The trouble is by 2014 the other manufacture's will have 2 years head start and Suzuki will be playing catchup. They should be giving bikes to Schwantz (to get a team started) or maybe Denning now not 2 years too late.

1 agree, 4 disagrees....LOL, for sure stoner haters voted you for 4 disagrees. Anyway you got point but unrealistic unless stoner realized that he made a mistake living the bike racing and come back in 2014. I will be very glad to see casey stoner in suzuki in 2014 if it'll happen. Motogp will be crt by 2014, so useless for suzuki to build a prototype bikes.

IF Suzuki ar planning a return in 2014 and have a bike and engine that's progressing along, are the 2012/2013 spec Bridgestone control tyres being made available to them for testing?

Surely some arm twisting would be going on so Suzuki could buy the proper spec tyres to test with even though they aren't entered into any MotoGP series? I'd hope they could.

re: "As someone who works for Suzuki I would love to see them make a bigger effort in motorsport. Unfortunately they have a history of making half ass attempts. The way they left both the GP and SBK teams hanging was disgraceful. While I'd love to think that it will be different this time I highly doubt it."

whew that was close, thank god a voice of reason made it onto the first page.

Suzi coming back would be awesome. Just reading this story and thinking about it made my day.

I never got why Suzi had a great production bike with an i4 yet raced a v4. I would have thought that in terms of R&D and marketing it would pay to have the same engine config. I as a litre bike fan love riding being able to buy and ride bikes based on the race bikes made by the manufacturers.

Where is rawdog and bobisasadoldman. I am really starting to worry bout these guys. Come on guys Casey still racing till the end of the year, cheer up he may change his mind.
