Well done Kiyo! I really hope that he can win his 3rd BSB title this year. I think that whether he finishes 1st or 3rd this year, he would definitely be eligible for a Moto2 ride next year. I would like to see him in Moto2, I think he could do well there. I don't know how old he is but one day I think he deserves a GP ride. Moto2 would be the best way to reach that.

I suspect Kiyo will stuck to 'supers.

Got to be favourite to win now but who knows- he is quite random.

Nice chap and world beating on a good day.

I think he has the most BSB wins ever?

@ Kiyo rules

He is a really strange rider, sometimes incredibly good other times unbelievably bad.

So strange in fact.... I could see see him Beating Valentino Rossi one week...... Then the next week finishing mid pack in BSB. Im not saying that in a bad way. I cud honestly see that happening

@ Kerpen

He is unpredictable I'll give you that. But that's what makes him so exciting. Every time I look at BSB results, I hope to see him on the podium, but I often fear that I will have to look down the list.

He wouldn't stand a chance in Moto2 let alone MotoGP - those bikes have a bewildering range of setup options and Kiyo would just go in circles. He isn't consistent because unless he gets a setup that gives him confidence he con't ride round problems - he was 4 seconds a lap off the pace in the recent WSB race 1. He appears to have got less consistent as the years have gone by - as if he rides more on confidence than ever.

If I was a betting man I would go with Brookes winning BSB this year rather than Kiyo.

Still a great rider though and when he gets a setup and all the planets are aligned he is incredible.
