Don't get fooled by test times.... The real advantage for the CRT teams is the extra fuel. The races are already all about fuel economy... you just can't see it, but the bikes need tricky fuel management software and schemes to make the distance.

The extra juice the CRT teams get pays in the overall race distance not qualifying or testing times that pick out the quickest laps....these bikes will have 25 vs 21 Liters of fuel. That's 19% extra power to use for the entirty of the race distance....

As for Suzuki, they will be back but need to see how the new rules pan out. Particullary, with the rolling rule book concept that introduces the abiltiy to change the rules througout the season to manage the CRT / factory handicap. What they will want to know is how that handicap will be managed, pro factory or pro CRT. Then they can decide whether to come back as factory or a CRT backing effort.
Experience is not something you get until just after you needed it.
