Jordan Szoke & Kawasaki Canada

Szoke loses ride for Canadian Kawi SBK http://www.roadracingworld.com/news/...?article=39145 :headshake

It's Not denial, I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

Wow..that's no way to treat a champ. This could look bad for Kawi if Jordan finds another ride and starts winning.

Those business practices seem to parallel DMG.......hope Szoke finds a good team/ride, he's a proven winner and shouldn't be treated in that manner. Hell, I don't think anyone should be treated that way........

sounds like hard times ahead for Kawi! but it's not just them A friend of mine who raced for Millennium Aprilia made "IMO" a bad move and walked on them last year and now to the best that i know has no ride in 2010! but it sounds like Szoke was trying to work with them?? but we only know 1/2 the story!

Apparently Szoke is having someone build a bike on his own dollar for the up coming season

Another of Kawasaki's dumb desisions. I mean come on now !! With 4, count em 4 consecutive Supersport and Superbike Canadia titles with Jordan Szoke at the helm, Kawasaki can't muster up enough money to a least support 1 Bike/rider for the 2010 season. What the hell is up with that !!:headshake

You know it really is too bad. I am from Canada and i have competed with and against Jordon in the past. I was a crew chief for another rider for the 1999 and 2000 seasons competing in the open supersport and pro 600 classes. Jordon is a great guy, liked by all and a hell of a rider. I can remember watching him start his road racing career on a Honda CB 250 at the local track near our hometown as a youth. I now own a Kawasaki myself and i love it but back in 2000 we had 2 zx6r black and silver models and we were sponsered by Kawasaki as well. Many a good rider has been worked over by them in the past. Some of you may remember hearing tales of Michael Taylor. Another fantastic rider who was former team mates with Steve Crevier. Both of those guys were [email protected]#ked over by Kawasaki. That's about when Crevier burst onto the AMA scene with Honda as Miguel Duhamels team mate. Perhaps a third Canadian rider you may have heard of. The problem with Michael was that he had alot of his own money invested into the r&d of the superbike in 2000 and once the season was over and he didn't win the championship, the factory took the bike chopped his contract and paid him no royalties for the r&d work he did. If anyone would like to know where the swing arm design for the 2008-2009 zx10r came from, call Michael Taylor and thank him. That swing arm was on the 2000 season Kawasaki zx7rr chasiss with a 900 motor superbike and the 2008-2009 now stock swing arm as a prototype. Let me finish by saying there is a reason we called them the cult.
