I have always been a Toseland fan but i think Vermeulen does have a good chance with all the prep that kawasaki has done over the past year.Come on it would be great to have a Kawasaki as a winner.

The amount of energy and dedication Kawi is putting into this, I am sure they are going to win some races, if they dont, then its just bad. They have the rider (possibly) to make it very competetive. Kawi hasnt put this much effort into racing in a while, and its like anything else, you get out what you put into it. They are going to step up the effort and put a good rider on it. What they really need is to put Joan Lascorz on the 10r, he logged some outstanding times on the bike, best for Kawi (Vermulen was not persent).

He wasn't on the podium, but he was consistantly fast. He finished in the top 10 in points.

Kawi won't win a race in 2010 and if they get a podium it would be because of a foul weather race.

Not gonna happen.
Gonna have to be a fluke, like half wet/half dry race or something.

they haven't WON and wont WIN because :

(pessimistic I know)


press 1 for everything to do with the 10 (equipment, development, etc...)


press 2 for everything to do with the riders they have/had

i dont think they will do great, but i do think they will do better. Vermulen isnt the best rider, but he does have skill and can give some valuable feedback back to the crew.

Kawi needs to do something because even though "professional" racing doesnt equate what we all ride on the street, it does trickle down and there is a certain amount of respect that is due to a winner. the 10r can win and i hope with all this new funding and energy kawi can get some results.

I agree with you about sykes, he just didnt do anything this year, he wasnt even mentioned in the races, unless he fell. Now given he is a good rider, just not as good as the guys hes riding against. Vermulen will be riding really hard giving it all hes got, hes moved down in the ranks now, and will have to proove himself again to get back to GP where he wants to be. Its like Spies, he pushed so hard this year, becuase thats where he wants to be, same with Vermulen. His career is on the line here, time to rise to the occasion or fade out.
