Perhaps you aren't aware of the fact that all the Bimota's had Suzuki engines in them? That's why I said it. I was thinking more along the lines of them remaining in Italy, or wherever the heck they are, and having Suzuki back them, and supply them with R&D info, engines, etc. Then they could be like Cagiva MV Agusta, Cagiva bought the MV Agusta name and is making the bike for them. So it would be a Suzuki Bimota, or you wouldn't even have to do that, unless Suzuki wanted. The Lexus don't say Toyota Lexus, so, it definitely wouldn't be neccesary. Either way, it'd keep the company alive.
