MotoGP: Kawasaki "as good" as Ducati...

Good read:

http://www.crash.net/news_view~cid~6~id~148554.htm

"Such competitiveness has recently been acknowledged by the likes of Rossi's crew chief Jerry Burgess and, in a reversal of the 990cc era - when Kawasaki struggled to attract a leading rider - Wheeler revealed that the team has already been approached by 'a number of top riders' regarding a 2008 seat."

Good read. I'll have to poke around and see who might be available next year.

Hopefully the bike is as competitive as people think, and that it just needs a top flight rider.....

From what I've seen Kawasaki is improving themselves in motorsports alltogether not only in MotoGP. Ok, they are still not in top 3 in anything but this season I see more competitive green bikes around then last few years.

I certainly hope you are right! I'd love to see a good effort on the '08 ZX10R and see them run with the Honda's and Yamaha's in World superbike.

I was watching the superpole to this past weekends Silverstone Superbike race (when it was dry). Regis Laconi looked like he was riding the crap out of the 10R, but was still over 1 second slower than even the privateer Honda's and the Yamahas. Looks like Suzuki is struggling a bit too with their new K7. I love my 10R to death, but I realize as a race platform, it's not the most amicable to live with.
