Ya something like that.Rob Nance said:Not sure what the joke is Squid? Something to do with the brands, or the fact that if they had used Kawi engines they'd still be around or something? hehe
No you said "Perhaps you aren't aware of the fact that all the Bimota's had Suzuki engines in them? "I never said that Bimota has only used Suzuki's, but the fact that the past few years, they had used almost (if not totally, not a Bimota buff) all Suzuki engines. [/B]

Would be cool if someone like Suzuki bought Bimota, and continued to supply them with Suzuki motors, and made them like Honda is to Acura, Toyota is to Lexus, Nissan is to Infiniti, etc. They could be the premier line of bikes for Suzuki.
Wow, this would really work. I wonder if any bike manufacturers ever thought to do something like the car companies do?
