I wish Suzuki to be able to promote a bike, as capable as the big two .
I still think that it was not the performance itself, which was missing last time, but rather outstanding riders. Have they the commitment to do that finally, this time ?
I dunno whether EL is the one they need, or a former motoGP champion, or maybe (why not) a rising star, coming from Moto2 .
I like EL and he is, for sure, capable to ride the h3ll out of any bike, but to do that, race in and out, might be another story. I wish him good luck, anyway !

"Eugene Laverty looking forward to Suzuki MotoGP tests". That's a revelation! When would a professional motorcycle racer dreaming of a factory ride NOT look forward to testing a new factory bike? LOL

Anyway, good luck with it Eugene - go fast and keep it upright! (priorities in that order)

re: "I still think that it was not the performance itself, which was missing last time, but rather outstanding riders."

well you really blew that one. it was the performance.

re: "Have they the commitment to do that finally, this time ?"

from outward appearances you would think so...? right...? unfortunately, the simple act of going hammer and tongs doesn't guarantee results, the only thing going hammer and tongs guarantees is that stacks of cash are being set on FIRE.

there are ton of variables out of their control. for example... defective tyres, overzealous riders trying to be cool and duplicate Rossi's original block pass because they saw Marcus pull it off, 11th hour rule changes, etc. it's both a mine field and a "TORPEDO FIELD", if there is such a thing.
