Suzuki in the MotoGP has a far better first half of the year than anyone expected. The chassis has proven to be very useable, and the team has sorted out the reliability of the engine while also releasing a higher tune.
If all the conditions are perfect, as they were in qualifying at Catalunya, the Suzuki MotoGP bike can excel, but there is a nagging doubt about outright performance. The trick Suzuki MotoGP bike must pull off is to increase engine power, probably by about 15kW, while maintaining the current excellent delivery and also improving the chassis' ability to work with that increase in power, all without sacrificing any of the bike's current good handling characteristics.
This is going to be difficult, but to date this team has done very well.
