snel - almost certainly the NW200 ride was the kicker. I'll bet some of the Triumph teams wanted him but wouldn't be able to provide anything other than a Supersport bike for the NW200, and I doubt the Triples would be competitive at the Triangle given the speeds.

Triumph are certainly missing a trick here by not producing a ~1100cc triple supebike. Maybe it's just the wrong time given the state of the global economy :(

"The 33-year-old will compete for Gearlink in the Supersport races and for MSS Kawasaki in the Superbike and Superstock classes."

Maybe I'm missing something here but that looks like a pretty hectic schedule to me - four races per day - wow!

@ 2strokes...
Seeley will ride for MSS at the NW 200 only,its the only road race he competes in.Rutter rode the Kawasaki well last year and i think broke the lap record. Glad to see Seeley back in the 600 class again could very well give Gearlink the championship.

I agree with @snel the Kwacker was off the pace this year hence Bens lack of wins, not for the lack of tying. They will have to improve the bike if Ben and Seeley are going to run at the front with that bike next season as both the other bikes and riders have improved. Should make for some good racing if they can get the bikes running closer.
