Meh....

Kawasaki has improved by leaps and bounds since leaving MotoGP. It seems like they've been finally able to put the enough money into R&D for one series that they're finally successful again in WSBK instead of being mostly irrelevant in both.

As cool as it would be to have everybody back on the grid (including Suzuki), I just don't see how that could be a good business decision.

Once they win WSB then consider coming back to motogp. I don't see the point now.

Thought they did? Either way, I agree they need more success in WSBK first.. And not just Tom Sykes.

LOL they should stick to WSBK, Moto Gp is a dying breed.

Like other have said ..I'd would love to see the "GREEN" out on the grid but they should stay in WSBK and solve the tire ware problem.
