It would be excellent to have Suzuki back as a factory effort but it sounds far from certain given that they say they lack the budget to race at the moment. Although 2014 is some way off, the global economy is going to get even worse yet before it gets any better so they're not likely to have an increased budget in the immediate future. It makes sense from a promotional point of view to go for an in line four - I wonder if it will have a cross-plane crankshaft or whether the ever increasing sophistication of the electronics means they think they could be competitive with a traditional 'screamer' engine?
