Even Kevin S. panned the bike at the end of the season when he rode it as down on power and crappy electronics compared to all the other entries.
Looks like Aspar should just hire Hopkins and Vermeulen and collect a bunch of podiums.
Nobody with a truly second rate effort scores a win, pole or podium in MotoGP and Suzuki did all those things. (Melandri on the Hayate bike proves this rule by being the exception
) I agree the Hopkins and Vermeulen were riding their asses off. All MotoGP riders are riding the shit out of the bikes. Now lets not take the internet too seriously. Its Friday.
