Kawasaki might have marketing strategy?

I am just curious if anyone possibly agree's with this.

Mladin Always watched and sold many a gixxers by winning races. Kawasaki no money or effort really put there.

GP not in america and Rossi dominating kawasaki not really putting money or effort there.

Laguna seca opens to GP. Kawasaki starts feeling around for riders.

Rossi loses dominance and cc rules change. Kawasaki DUMPS Money into GP bikes riders and starts looking to take some titles home in GP now that it's aired on US Soil (we do have alot of consumers in the US) There is an opening for a consistant #1 and Team Green is putting down alot of money and perhaps..Just perhaps we may see kawasaki taking a lot of poles soon? just a theory.

0510R PCIII dyno tuned 520 X -1+2 sprockets. slip on and a few other Knick Knacks filter plugs emissions dyno tune. And 20,000 miles of learning on this one anyways.

I think in the last 4yrs Kawa has stepped up alot on R&D starting to show as well in the design of the bikes & now putting forth some cash to get some good riders for next year I say it is about time for Team Green to maybe start to dominate more power to them I hope the 08 is a Beast in all aspects GO TEAM GREEN!!!It can only get better!! IMO

Just a thought, but does KHI sell more sportbikes here in the US? With Stuart winning in the dirt maybe we'll start to see more Kawi dominance. AMA superbike is gonna be a hard one to take from Suzuki. They've been in it forever with way more money thrown at RD work and research.

Out of the 4, Kawasaki is the only one that doesn't manufacture scooters. Here in Europe it costs them dearly.

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.
