Would be nice to see him drop Suzuki and favor BMW or Yamaha. I'm sure he has some sort of arrangement though, as much as I am sure he absolutely hates losing, there has to be a reason he was running Suzukis against much better Yamahas.

I'm guessing that when anyone wealthy and famous from another world of sports (wherever) decides to own a bike team just because he can: he will go with the first factory that he fell in love with back when he got his first bike.

Or not.

It would be awesome to see MJM on the international scene and in MotoGP, however given the current economic climate especially when it come sponsors I don't see it as being realistic.

WSBK on the other I could really see it as being realistic given the fact the new rule changes will be a boost to privateers like MJM.

Air Jordan Motorcycle boots highside in style. I'll expect a free sample or royalties for the idea.

Don't think they will continue with Suzuki if they choose WSBK with Jack Valentines crew already run a great privateer effort there, maybe Suzuki may want a team like them running there GP effort in 2015. Great addition whatever route they finally decide to go.

A move like this had to require for the National Guard to withdraw their sponsorship. This is the ultimate gamble that Michael is making. And World Superbikes need a new team on the grid.

Under the latest GP rules won't Suzi be obliged to make engines / customer bikes available to at least 1 privateer team? If so, MJM could be the perfect USA marketing tool for Suzi come 2015.....

re: “it is yet to determine whether it will be heading for MotoGP or the World Superbike Championship.”

WSBK.

re: “but an interview with Michael Jordan Motorsport's vice president of corporate relations Kreig Robinson at Cycle News revealed it is also considering a move into MotoGP.”

WSBK.

re: “We're looking at both World Superbike and MotoGP and we're going to take our time to figure out what's the best way to go”

WSBK.

re: “Anyone who has been paying attention”

hey, that's my line...!!! :)

re: “We have to really evaluate what is happening in World Superbike, in MotoGP. What is going to be the best situation for a team that is structured like ours.”

WSBK.

re: “It seems that in World Superbike you now have this EVO class and in MotoGP you have the Moto2 and CRT and production GP racers that are now available. So what is going to be the best for us? I don't think we're going to start building a prototype motorcycle to compete in MotoGP.”

right then, WSBK.
