I think Kawasaki and Suzuki could both leave MotoGP and nobody would really notice.
Unfortunately that is true. Kawasaki especially has just been a backmarker team ever since they got into MotoGP. I am pretty sure that they have never had a podium finish. Maybe just a handful of top 10 finishes at best. Probably one of their least cost-effective racing programs, so no surprise that it would be the first to get pulled in hard times.
