Yeah. welcome back Suzuki, the more the merrier. Sincerely, I welcome Suzuki with both arms - I had plenty of Suzis before being "conquered" by the Aprilia flair... Having said that I feel that some comments like "bring 2014 on" when 2013 hasn't even started are surreal. Suzuki is a welcome addition, but it is not the major manufacturer, and will be more of a filler than a title fighter, so... let's enjoy 2013 first and when it ends, and ONLY AFTER THAT et's hope 2014 will be even better...

re: "For a million bucks it sure seems like one is getting ripped."

yeah, for a million bucks it sure seem like the "one" getting ripped is honda.

as the company who brought us everything from the RC166 to the V5 to the million dollar gearbox, having a luddite dictating a price cap while never having designed or manufactured a damn thing IN HIS LIFE is shameful. there are boffins inside honda with PHD's. meanwhile, did ezpelata even graduate high school...? dunno.

re: "but we still need to improve many small things."

translation: our bike is behind the same 8-ball as the ducati.

re: "will be more of a filler than a title fighter"

I thought the point of CRT is to fill the grid?? (and keep costs down) so why not run another team?? Why would a company not want more clients?? Hello Dorna?? Hello??

"Dorna has indicated that Suzuki will need to source its grid places from an existing team."

What the hell? All of a sudden the MotoGP grid is too full for a production bike?
