This was always my fear as far as Leon signing with Suzuki goes, not enough factory effort, especially compared with the BWM and Aprilia efforts with their full time test teams etc...

This is a company that has only one WSBK championship to it's name so surely this is no surprise.

Suzuki has always half assed it in WSBK. You would think with a championship in sight and within grasp that they would step it up.

Sorry Leon, it is gonna take a lot more than 'some new parts' to beat Max on the RSV4. Every other manufacturer has been caught with their pants down. Only a completly new base package with Motogp inspired technology and, infinate chassis adjustment can beat Aprillia now! They will dominate now, as Ducati did for years.

Oh great, get Suzuki's MotoGP technology. that's sure to
help. Spies said last year that the Aprilia was close to a GP bike. It's amazing that this small firm has been able to produce such a bike

"It's amazing that this small firm has been able to produce such a bike "

that would be the Italian team in the Italian run championship, running a MotoGP bike in a production race series...

I sincerely hope that Suzuki do give some assistance to the Alstare team, to at least give Leon a fighting chance of the title. The Biaggi/Aprilia partnership is currently very strong, but not unbeatable.

In a recent press release, Suzuki has announced that Paul Denning will now be running the WSBK efforts. His first official act as team manager will be to replace Haslam stating, "he wants too much money for someone that is unproven". Dennings main goal is to cut costs and results for the team. :p
