Actually, kawi Spends an awefull lot on Moto GP, they are one of the only teams to fully fund their tem, menaing not main sponsors, it takes an aweful lot of developement to feild a GP bike, look at the other bikes that have been made from the ground up since Kawi got in the game,
Kawi, I give them C+ but could be a B+ by next year, good resuults today
Ducati A-, their perfomance prior to this year hurts their score, clearly they have their stuff together
KR, F, seems they are even less competitive with Honda power if thats possible
Harris, F out of GP
Ilmor, F how long did that last
Foggy Petronas, F never even made it to GP and was not competitve in SBK.
So for the amount of time that Kawi has been serious about GP racing they have made some great improvments, hopefully they can make that giant step like Ducati did this year, they are every bit as competitive as Ducati was two years ago.
