Question about Kawi's are Racing

So I have a zx10 and love it...but I was surfing the motogp for fun today and noticed that I hardly see any kawasaki (if any at all) on the leaderboard

If Kawi's are so awesome, why aren't the racing teams racing them?

Pulled out of motogp back in 2010 due to rule changes and money. They never raced a ZX-10 in motogp anyways as that's a prototype series.

The ZX-10 is raced in world super bike and placed second last year by .5 points.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

You do know that the bikes we are riding and moto GP bikes are 2 very different animals right? A closer comparo would be http://www.worldsbk.com/en/season.html

This is where production based bikes race. You may also see a few pole positions by a gentleman named Tom Sykes....
