Official Statement Rizla Suzuki: Temporary Suspension Of MotoGP Racing

Akhirnya yang ditunggu-tunggu keluar juga. Seperti yang sudah dibocorkan oleh Paul Denning sebelumnya, Rizla Suzuki akhirnya mengumumkan ketidakikutsertaannya di gelaran MotoGP hingga 2013 dalam Temporary Suspension Of MotoGP Racing Jumat kemarin.

Suzuki Motor Corporation has decided to suspend temporarily its participation in FIM Road Racing Grand Prix MotoGP from 2012.

This suspension is to cope with tough circumstances mainly caused by the prolonged recession in developed countries, a historical appreciation of Japanese Yen and repeated natural disasters.

Having an eye to returning to MotoGP in 2014, Suzuki will now focus on developing a competitive new racing machine for that class.

Suzuki will continue motocross racing activity and support of road racing activities using mass-produced motorcycles, by obtaining FIM homologation and co-operation with the supplier of its development racing kit parts.

Selama berkarir di MotoGP, Suzuki sudah meraih 5 kali gelar juara dunia di era 500cc.

  • Barry Sheene (1976 & 1977)
  • Marco Lucchinelli (1981)
  • Franco Uncini (1982)
  • Kevin Schwantz (1993)
  • Kenny Roberts Jr (2000)

Dengan absennya Rizla Suzuki, berarti tim pabrikan yang tersisa tinggal Ducati MotoGP, Yamaha Factory, dan Repsol Honda. Mudah-mudahan di tahun 2014 nanti Suzuki bisa menepati janjinya untuk tampil kembali dan menunjukkan hasil yang jauh lebih kompetitif.
