@ Md Zane: and Marquez sitting up early is prove of what exactly ? I guess you have never heard of slip streaming before ????? Are you saying your eyes are more reliable than transponders and sensors ???? do you know how many times this season Marquez' bike has the overall quickest in the speed traps over a race weekend this season. NOT ONCE!!! Don't believe go heck motogp yourself !

Marquez is fast no doubt. Um but he kind of looks like the Joker in one of the Batman movies. Just a tad of makeup around the mouth and eyes and he'd have the part!

For the billionth time, top speed is NOT how you rank motorcycles. Of course Marquez can sit up on the staights when he is SLIPSTEAMING someone else. The others could do that as well, if they had his racecraft.

The Suter is a fast bike in the right hands, but the rigidity of the chassis makes it a bike thats only suited to some riders. Suter started Moto2 as the dominant manufacturer and has lost plenty of clients since those early days. If the bike is so bloody good, none of those teams would have bothered to change.

The Suter is a great bike, quite probably still the best bike, just so long as you have the undivided attention of Eskil Suter constantly in your garage, providing you with the latest updates long before other teams using his chassis, even if their contracts stipulate 'equal treatment'. THAT is the real reason why so many teams have defected to Kalex and FTR and why even the NGM Mobile Forward Racing Suter-BMW team in MotoGP are also planning to ditch their Suter, having already changed their Moto2 team from Suter to FTR a couple of weeks ago.

Great to see Westy closer to the pointy end. It is amazing how a wet track levels the playing field when you are riding an inferior machine way down on horsepower. All the best for the race mate and here's hoping it's a wet one
Cheers
