Personally, I think Honda is treading water until 2014, when the rumored RC213 derived superbike is released. Crescent Suzuki has brought their engine program in-house, which may cure the rumored 30+ HP deficit that the Yoshimura prepped motors had. Camier did pretty well on the GSXR at PI but I think that Suzuki won't be able to mount a legitimate title challenge, although podiums and an occasional win aren't out of the question.
i thought the new RC213 based superbike would be a 1200?
