Suzuki could be calling it quits, at least temporarily, from racing in the MotoGP. Suzuki missed Friday's deadline to commit to the championship for 2012 and Rizla Suzuki team boss Paul Denning sent out an email to team members saying that Suzuki would not race in the MotoGP in 2012. An official announcement hasn't been made yet, but it looks like there won't be a factory Suzuki team on the grid in 2012.
The Yoshimura Suzuki team has just announced its riders for the 2012 AMA Superbike season. The team lost a championship contender when they decided not to resign Tommy Hayden, but with Blake Young and Chris Clark riding two Suzuki GSX-R1000s, the team should be in good shape in 2012.
Leon Camier will race his third year in the World Superbike series with the Crescent Suzuki team. Camier and the Crescent Suzuki team just announced an agreement that will put the former BSB Champion on a Suzuki for the 2012 World Superbike season.
After another successful year of racing aboard the Suzuki GSX-R1000, the Japanese manufacturer has given the bike another upgrade. The 2012 GSX-R1000 has a new exhaust system, quicker acceleration, crisper throttle response, and better fuel economy.
The Crescent Suzuki team announced today that they will be running in the 2012 World Superbike series. The team hasn't announced a rider yet, but it's possible that John Hopkins, who raced this year with the team in the BSB, will take the position.
