SUZUKI have announced their intent to test their 2014 MotoGP entry in with the current MotoGP bikes at the Catalunya on the 17th of June 2013.

Suzuki withdrew from MotoGP at the end of the 2011 season, unable to fund a team due to the financial crisis. Meanwhile, Suzuki have been developing their prototype, which some think may be a CRT machine. Suzuki have been testing the prototype with increasing regularity at Motegi.

Former Grand Prix winner turned Suzuki factory test rider says he'll be at the test with an as-yet unnamed European rider.

However, entry back into MotoGP is not guaranteed for the former GP front-runners; Dorna boss CarmeloEzpeleta has stated they will not accept new entries for 2014 and so Suzuki will have to source their grid spot, or spots from a current team.

Obviously history counts for little when you're the big cheese at Dorna.
