Where is all Suzuki's money going?

So we all know that the suzuki is the worst bike on the GP grid and the factory no longer supports the AMA team.... but what i did not know is that they do not support the WSBK team either....its quite a shame as Haslam was in a great postion to take the title but now the lack of development on the bike has come to fruition as he struggles to stay in sync with even the Ducatis in a straight line and he basically has to ride the wheels off the thing to make up the time he loses on the straights to keep up with the other 4 cyclinders.... according to Haslam and the announcers the team is basically a sattelite team....which leads me to my question... if theyre not supporting WSBK, AMA and the GP bike is still garbage....Where is the money going?

Like many companies, they could have been in serious debt. IIRC, they're not shipping any bikes to the US for the 2010 model year due to overstock. So, that could be part of it is that their money is tied up in unsold units.

Honda did the same thing to a degree. They dropped out of a number of racing circuits due to finances.
