This is all a ploy to rid Manufactures out of the game. Then we can have CRT only. He accomplishes his goal to cheapen the sport. At the viewers expense. Business my A$$, he wants to show the world his idea of CRT is the way of the future. Then there is no one with dollars to stand in the way of his idea.

It could well be that Ezpeleta wants factories gone and to go CRT. I have NO problems with that.
Anyway - if Suzuki aren't mental, then they'll be negotiating terms of a return - as others (and me) have said, why be foolish enough to return with HRC /Yam with 99.9% sorted kit & millions of $, while your own limited budget and the testing limits mean you can only hope to be mediocre against them?
Look - you can't get better with more Factory bikes - the rules and the budgets rule that out. HRC / Yam love it as it is, they know they have no competition - it might as well be a 'closed shop' to anyone else.
To get a closer field you have to reduce the tech thru the field, not try and cram more in. Ezpeleta knows this - his problem is Fans can't see it - they are too busy believing the bollox factory propoganda IMO.

OK, so if we project the hypothesis further and the remaining factories are squeezed out of Motogp in favour of a grid full of CRT's.....who supplies the base engines for CRT? Who supplies all the engines for Moto2? Who supplies the majority of the engines in Moto3?
So Honda take the hump and leave with all their toys but Ezpeleta is reliant on them to supply hardware for the other classes he has created....then where does he turn? Seems to me he has already prostituted himself to the factories....he can't have it all ways, his bargaining position is not that strong.

Maybe Ezpeleta is being very shrewd, he claims to want to hold on to crt, however if factory based teams have to virtually buy slots for gp then the crt's will slowly disappear,if suzuki enter two factory, two support in 2014, numbers go to 16 factory supported bikes out of 24, 2 more factories and crt is history, also ezpeleta be warned, a struggling crt team may sell to suzuki at low cost to unload, they may well still only do 1 season & you lose not only the factory bikes but another crt team.

Ezpeleta knows what is happening more than most think! If in 2014 Lorenzo, Marquez, Rossi and Pedrosa were riding CRT bikes (as well as the pioneers of CRT that are riding them now),would it would make any difference? Most people just want to see the best riders, the very best, go head to head. Bike prototype means nowt in this culture. Just give them exotic bikes and give us a race. No?

I would like to see Kawasaki Heavy Industries (one of the biggest and technologically advanced companies in the world) give motogp their full support.

Imagine suzuki and kawasaki replacing honda and yamaha on the podium.
How cool would that be!

" why bother... the amount of money (estimated 30 mil) that Suzuki would need to spend to be competitive, they could go back into wsbk with a full factory supported team and gain more exposure for their brand and kill it...

Yes but how long before this spanish puta casts his magic spell on WSBK and wrecks that as well. We will all have to wander off to BSB..it will be the only game in town left that will feature real honest racing
