How does Suzuki add more value? You think they would be running anywhere other than where Aspar is already running with the Aprilias?
If you're convinced the prescence of one of the big four Japanese factories doesn't help MotoGP, then there is nothing I can say that will sway you.

Handing the rulebook to the factories was one of many mistakes Dorna has made and continues to make. I'm just hoping they don't screw up WSBK and take all the domestic series down with them.
