Remember that even mighty Honda had their appropriately named "not ready" NR 500 years back!
I think they were set to return until Ezpeleta told them they would have to pay their own way.
IMHO, this is an everyone loses situation.
Maybe the leased Yamaha engines and the customer Hondas will be enough to keep the story line interesting. Maybe DORNA thought the series would be too flush with interest if the excitement of Suzuki returning was added to the mix.
understand DORNA was burned by Suzuki before.
