re: "they will prove that Suzuki is still one of the Top teams on the fastest bikes on the planet"

therein lies the rub, suzuki hasn't been one of the top teams with one of the fastest bikes on the planet in more than a decade...?

Q1: why does there seem to be some kind of mass delusion regarding suzuki...?

Q2: why no mass delusion regarding kawasaki...?

re: "Everybody want the return of Suzuki except Dorna..."

proof that mass delusions are a real human condition and the phenomena can happen in almost any context, not just cult religions.

Really! Suzuki needs to source its place from an existing team. The grid has only become full and you have started a grid war!! As a fan I would luv a explanation. How very business like.

Can anyone tell me what exactly is the difference between the CRTs and the proposed "honda back marker half assed prototype?

For a million bucks it sure seems like one is getting ripped. Specially if it won't beat the aprilia, bmw, ducati and kawasaki WSBKs which are cheaper by a mile.

I'm talking about the running of the sport as the story was strongly talking about Dorna. Go figure.

And the fact that riders from other nations can hardly get a chance in the sport because there is so many Spanish run teams who only hire Spanish riders due to sponsors etc it probably would be a different story if other riders from other nations got a chance to come in and for teams to be born out of it with sponsors hopefully coming with them. Hense why the red bull rookies cup has been conceived."

The reality is that Spain does the best job of bringing riders up the ladder. The rest just have very poor involvement period. Even the Italians are complaining of how poor the support has been behind younger riders to help them move up.

Even though I'm a WSBK, WSS fan I understand that the chassis set up of a Moto2 bike is totally different to a WSS bike so no matter how good a kid is in any given country's (the ones without a Moto2 class) SS class they have to basic

....basically learn a new bike all over again.

Riders without sponsors as we all know have to foot their own bill in a crappy team if they want to go to the world stage.
