This is bad news! It seems Suzuki as a brand is now intent on 'killing' itself by quitting motor racing. It was racing that brought Suzuki to prominence. Based on this racing Suzuki built a reputation and produced many very successful sports machines over the past 40 odd years. In quitting motor racing I cannot see this manufacturer ever making the same impact it did during the 70's 80's and 90's in both motor racing and production bike sales. After closing the tap to a mere drip during the past few years, Suzuki has now turned it further to a complete 'shut-off' and in doing so, more than likely has stopped any flow in the near future as far as motor racing goes! I wonder if Suzuki is 'discarding' motorbikes and focussing more on cars, outboard engines for boats and the like?
