Flip a coin to guess which is a dead end ride in WSBK between Suzuki and Honda.

I hope they do better with the bike this year. Their riders deserve better.

Think this is way fixi suzuki were set up tailend of last season when camier started to show nearer the sharp end. Les Pearson and the crescent boys Will build some decent engines and package Will be good .

I remember when Max blew past him at PI, but that was because Max is smaller, on a better budgeted bike, better aero, and had a MUCH more corner exit speed than Leon.

Speed is important, but I dont see Suzuki really winning in any class, despite Crescent's decent form in BSB the prior year, and their lack of data for last year. Its probably faster, but I cant see it beating the established bikes even if it can match them down the straights, on the more 'traditional' tracks, unlike the tracks in BSB.

Suzuki will not be part of the top manufaturer this season....forget it , a poor investment in efforts and efficiency. Camier need another surgery and Cluzel need to get used to this bike. To be fair they can do top 10 but not really part of the top 6. Suzuki fan some more time to see again a winning suzuki. I have one at home but im sour that there are no where at all. Lets follow the green staff with Sykes or Laverty on the Aprilia...will be fun.

THe link with Yoshi was a mistake, might have seemed like a good idea on paper but the Yoshi bikes that had wildcarded at various WSB races during the previous 2 seasons were woefully slow, Cresent were probably in a better place with their own engines developed in BSB at that time....John Hopkins showing at Silverstone WSB at that time is an example.
Hopefully they'll be more competitive now + more reliable, tho' they are always going to struggle to match the likes of Aprilia, BMW & Kawasaki who are the one's putting the maximum effort in.

Pp916 before you start posting crap do your research.
The year that the Yoshi bike entered wild card events with Josh Waters in Wsbk was A an endurance spec bike which was used to enter Suzuka 8 hour and B they where testing the new exsaust system which Crescent used last year.
If you don't know your facts best not to post at all.
If anyone can get power from a Suzuki lump Yoshimura can.
