always considering Suzuki do a equilibrate package,

De Puniet, back on bussines please,
Bautista, but is engage with Gresini
Crutchlow, if he dont go to official Yamaha,
Spies, a last shot to see if he can do it...
Hopper if he stay fit, but i think he is not yet...
Vermeulen if he stay fit, but since serious knee injury look like never back fit,
Capirossi, i think he can do a great job, or if not, maybe as tester,
Edwards, same as Capirossi,
Aoki is already official tester, i like it,

and lets look BSB as maggser do, Michael Laverty, Alex Lowes, there is many good riders...

Give it to Aleix Espargaro! I believe he's competent and able to get the job done efficiently! Though currently in the CRT, but he's doing an awesome job there.. Curious & would be great seeing him on a factory's bike!

Crutchlow is desperate for a factory ride, and if Yamaha DO stiff him by giving his bike to Pol Espargaro, then the Suzuki factory ride is the only available bike capable of getting near the factory Yamahas.

That's assuming Stefan Bradl doesn't get the boot from LCR...

Aleix Espargaro definitely deserves a factory ride, but I can't see Suzuki choosing him over Crutchlow if he's available.

Also, lets not forget that Suzuki may well want to have a Japanese rider in the team, so, assuming they field two bikes, I would expect to see either the excellent Taka Nakagami or some other heavily-sponsored/overrated japanese rider from the Asian Superbike series appear in the garage.

I'd like to see Scott Redding on a works bike as much as the next person, but I think a more likely outcome will be Marc VDS stepping up into MotoGP with one of the new spec "customer" options from Honda, or more likely a works Yamaha-engined Kalex.

Hopkins is an outside bet, however his appearance at Le Mans

I don't no why people keep saying stoner not only has he given up and gone home but he has never developed a. Bike he just rode bikes other people developed he rode them fast but they never got any better in his hands

@ NotDeadYet

I agree, but I don't care, I just wanna watch Casey race again. I think he and MM would be an unstoppable force at Honda.

BUT, I think RDP deserves a decent factory shot. He is so much better than the haters give him credit for.

Otherwise, I don't want Cal there, if the Ducati keeps taking positive steps forward, I would like to see him and Dovi reunited.

Otherwise, I think a team of RDP and Ben Spies would be an epic team for Suzuki if they are willing to put in the money and development.
