Suzuki has confirmed that it is pulling out of MotoGP but insists its absence will be temporary and that a 2014 return is on the cards.
The future of Suzuki’s MotoGP program had been in doubt for months, with the reduction to a single works bike this season widely regarded as a precursor to a full withdrawal.
It did not join fellow works teams Honda, Ducati and Yamaha in publically testing a 1000cc bike for the 2012 rules, although there were suggestions that such a bike was under development and that the factory team would start the season with its old 800cc machine before switching to the new bike later in the year.
But today the company issued a statement blaming global economic circumstances for the decision to suspend its MotoGP program for at least two seasons.
