If Honda's pulling out all the stops this year, I can't help but wonder how valuable Yamaha's R-1 domination has been in the marketplace. In other words, does "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday" still apply?

Does anyone know the last time Suzuki was competitive? It seems like they used to "own" racing, in every venue, but lately...not so much. Maybe I'm wrong...

Its.......A FACT!

Suzuki hasn't been competitive in MotoGP since the two-stroke era. Of AMA superbike, I cannot say. I know there were a few front-runners in World SBK, but I cannot remember the names. Imagine that.
