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.

They should've worked out a deal to provide the bikes for moto3. Their bread and butter on two wheels is >600cc

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.
They are smarter than that.

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

Absolutely. The have the best livery on the grid and yet they couple it with the complete opposite in their sportbike styling. The old Rizla replicas look better than the current offerings.

Looks good to me except for that 55 gal drum of an exhaust.

Nah, do a throwback livery



EDIT: except for the blue, who'd even be able to tell?
