Holy smokes! That’s like Kawi leaving PC, only 10 years from now. LOTS of titles from that team.

In the long run they won't be going down with the ship. Don't they share the building with American Suzuki?

I've lost quite a bit of respect for Suzuki hearing that. I feel bad for those dudes at Yoshimura, hopefully they can find something to keep going.

One of the downvotes is from me, for that exact reason. Not only is it shitty news, but to find out via PR is a really shitty way of doing business. Formal meeting too much to ask?

I don't see it as a thumbs up comment.

We are down voting because we don't like how the team found out about it. I don't agree with how they handled it so I down voted it. Damn Fabio, grow some balls . Why are people up voting it ? people lost their jobs.

Good point: The inability to have a face to face with the guys that brought them HOW MANY titles?

It’s sad.

This. Suzuki and Yoshi go together like milk and chocolate. Seems like they really want to burn whatever fans they have left.

According to his Instagram josh has no plans moving forward. Yosh commented that maybe the two of them should get together and do something. I believe Toni has a contract with suzuki so he may be getting the superbike ride with team hammer, I just hope they keep Jake Lewis around. He lost his yosh seat to Toni when he got injured and John and Chris stepped up and made space for him at team hammer and he’s been there ever since. I really hope that continues.

Sounds like JGR is still good.

After over 40 years together, Yoshimura R&D will no longer field Suzuki superbikes. Yoshimura will remain an important partner for marketing and R&D efforts for Suzuki but with a different focus, and will continue to build upon their strong business relationship moving forward.

Don Sakakura, President of Yoshimura R&D commented on the unparalleled relationship between Suzuki and Yoshimura that spanned some four decades: “Yoshimura’s partnership with Suzuki has been instrumental to our core business the past 41 years,” said Sakakura. “As a team, we accomplished tremendous racing milestones, leaving behind many special celebrations, as well as setbacks. Personally, it has been a true privilege to have worked closely with management and staff at Suzuki. The friendships I’ve developed will carry over my lifetime. Notably, the engineering team at Suzuki’s Japan headquarters has been extremely significant in our successes over the years.”

Suzuki echoed Sakakura’s comments and thanked Yoshimura for its contribution to 212 race wins and 14 Championships in the AMA Superbike class, the most of any manufacturer.

Kerry Graeber, Suzuki’s vice president of sales and marketing stated that the Suzuki Yoshimura relationship remains strong. “Though Yoshimura won’t be operating our road racing team moving forward, we look forward to continuing together in many other aspects of our business.” Graeber noted that Yoshimura remains integral with JGR/Suzuki, the company’s supercross/motocross race team, as well as several sales and marketing programs. Graeber sees that not only continuing, but also possibly expanding.

Maybe Yoshi can be the title sponsor of JGR now or for 2021. Get back to their winning ways.

Main reason is downsizing of the racing budget. Not sure what the plans are with Don and Yoshimura Racing (a separate division from Yoshimura R&D) but I know that Don and the crew there will land on their feet. There is too much talent and professionalism there. Maybe a different form of racing? We will see...

Anyway the Yoshimura R&D business remains strong. It's just sad to see a partner in racing for 41 years change gears.

There was a lot that went into this and I can tell you that they didnt all find out by press release and many factors played into this decision. There is a lot history shared between these companies and to suggest anything but a good business decision was made is wrong. Yoshimura will still be part Suzuki one way or another. Our famalies go back almost 100 years....

My view comes from being at the race shop yesterday just a few hours prior to this pr coming out. The members I chatted with were still in the dark and their Christmas party was only a few hours later. Poor timing and handling from my point of view. I have a personal attachment towards that brand and crew so it probably urks me more than most but I also believe you have an attachment to the brand on the other side of this discussion, so I’m sure our points of view differ quite a bit.
