Yep great race. If Marquez wouldn’t have crashed he would have gotten at least 2nd. Rins is a great rider and the Zook is improving, they need some more power and they will be at the front every week.

In MotoGP, where the only rule is that the bikes can't have any production parts... That proves how good a stock RMZ is though, lol.

Bummed for Rossi...was looking forward to his celebration, having said that, I'm really Rins got his first win. Suzuki are doing a good job on a way smaller budget than most of those teams. Extremely rewarding for them.

Suzukis arent POS bikes.

Suzuki street bikes arent as outdated as the dirtbikes

MotoGP bikes arent even production models

So whats your point?

Shows that if Suzuki cares about developing a legit MX bike they would be great, they have the engineers, infrastructure and right people to do it

Suzuki makes a great MX bike as well. More capable than 99.9% of the population can ride it. Bullet proof, fairly priced...can't beat it.

It wasn’t long ago that Suzuki was finishing dead last consistently. They were getting beat by satellite teams every race.

They’ve come a long way with their MotoGP program.

Couldn't have said it any better...It really bums me out when people say the RMZ sucks. I love my 250F, turns like a damn jet fighter

The brand hasn't exactly been killing it in the marketing and sales department.

Suggested sales pricing difference over here for a new 2019 250:
KXF 250 + EUR 450
CRF 250 + EUR 999
SXF 250 + EUR 1.670

Since like 75% or more of the MX population are not capable of using a bike to it's potential anyway i would expect to see Suzuki being used by the majority of the hobby/recreational racers. But on a typical weekend day i probably see <10% Suzuki's at the local track. I guess their sales and marketing team has something to do with that.

Industry media doesn't help either. I was shocked how good the RMZ was when I rode it, according to everything I read in the media, it was a dated, slow, unreliable bike. Glad I test rode one, I liked it better than any other bike I rode, including the KTM that costs $3k more. (I liked the KTM a lot too)

Suzuki has there niche of loyal customers , mostly from riders, that once they tried them are suzuki for life, the brand has won números champioships and contend succefully on "outdated" Bikes and their market share hasnt grown up, not bashing anyone, but that 90% riders racing wathever brand Will finish in the same exact spot

I've said it before but Suzuki if they want to find a niche is to push forward with their 4 strokes and get a hydraulic clutch and e-start, re-introduce their awesome 125 and 250 two strokes from the past and value price them plus build a 350 four stroke. As for hiring race winning riders for marketing? F that. Go back to sponsoring many many privateer riders like they used to.
