    yep, same as Honda in F1. Lotsa $$$$$ spent for not much result...

    theyd be better off sticking with Super sport 600, where theyre competitive and putting in a bigger effort to build a competitive WSB around the ZX 10.

    that should transpose to more floor sales than trying to chase the big bucks GP teams.(and getting thrashed)

    So there will be like 1 or 2 teams riding this year then?

    The podium will be boring.

    There will be a whole 17 bikes on the grid, take into consideration that they pay points back to 15th place and just about everyone on the grid will finish in the top 15 for the year, LOL......it's still exponentially better than the Deliverance Cup Series.........

    The big three (or little three now) have talked now and again about pulling out of NASCAR I know. Not a lot of bucks in that for them (in regards to sales) either. The ole "win on Sunday and and sell on Monday" doesn't really apply to MotoGP or NASCAR of course, since you cannot (for the most part) buy any of those cars/bikes.

    Nothing like the good ole days of Woodward Ave (Detroit) street racing to push car sales.

    I don't recall they were ever much of a contender. I was more surprised by Subaru pulling out of WRC than this.
