Hmmm....that's unexpected for sure. But with Dorna now owning both the MotoGP and WSBK series, they've already got the 2014 WSBK rules starting to be neutered. 2013 is the pinnacle of WSBK (and 2 wheel racing in general IMO) and it's only going downhill from this point forward. Enjoy the series this year while it's here! It's part of the death spiral Dorna is moving forward with.

I don't think it will be the last OEM to pull out soon.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
