Kawasaki out of ama in 2010 But going BIG in WSB

Chris Vermullen was interviewed about his signing with Kawasaki next year and said he was looking forward to the season because Kawasaki said they are going drastically increase funding of the team and development of the bike . He then went on to say that kawasaki was able to do so from the money they saved pulling out of the AMA series for 2010... Personally between the two series I would rather see a genuine full force effort in WSB from Kawasaki than 2 half assed efforts in both series .

It will be good to see Vermullen on a fully funded and proper effort from Kawi, I think he is more suited for WSB, since he did so well there... hopefully he can stay healthy and competitive next year and help Kawi get back on the top where they belong.

I can't wait. Kawi deserves the respect they have been lacking from others.

And I think everyone knows how I feel about DMG.

Kawasaki could have been dicing with the other japanese manufactures for years. bean Counters at the parent company could never get race on sunday sell on monday marketing. Bean counters want to see guaranteed wins for there money and that can never happen with Yamaha , Honda and Suzuki in the mix. Thats why to the public Kawasaki is a good bike but not as good as its competitors( dont kill the messsanger I love my zx14 lol) ... hopefully with a continued strong race effort that will change

Go Kawi!
Shouldnt look too much different than the current 3rd gen that makoto tamada runs. his results suck but the bike is gorgeous. why is it the 08+ bikes look not so great in street trim but look absolutely incredible in race livery? i love my street '05 but the new 10's are amazing machines. looking forward to vermuelen dicing with haga and biaggi, with a full factory effort he should get close to the sharp end.

That's pretty much how any bike is nowadays. None of the newer bikes really do much for me like some did in the past. But pretty much any bike looks good as a racebike, especially a full-fledged six or seven figure $$$ factory racebike.
