Kawasaki doesn't have the resources for MotoGP these days. The motorcycle division of Kawasaki just isn't big enough to justify a GP budget.

Make no mistake, Kawasaki Heavy Industries has the money, but it's purely a corporate financial decision. The ROI just isn't there.

I’d bet it’s a money losing venture for all the manufacturers. It’s just a matter of how much you’re willing to go into the red.

Maybe they can find a coupons or with endlessly deep pockets- maybe some corporation from the entertainment industry?

Like, I don't know, maybe Playboy, for example?

Of course it is.

Kawi does not want to invest millions to finish last.

Like Budman said, that blue & silver livery is to die for.

If Suzuki wins the 2020 MotoGP championship, I'm gonna buy the 100th anniversary edition of the GSXR-1000
