Honda has now pulled out their factory team, citing the financial situation.
Scuttlebutt has it that Kawasaki will pull out soon, leaving Yamaha, KTM, Aprilia, possibly BMW not sure, and privateers. Supposedly Suzuki will not even homologate their bikes, which will leave privateers running Suzuki in the lurch. Honda is continuing to support their affiliated teams, but no more factory team.
2009 will be ... interesting.
Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!
