Hope for Vermulen that Kawi does put the type of financial support into the team it needs to win. The big Kawi on the street is no slouch so if they put the needed work into it then there should be no reason it shouldn't be competitive. However, it's ashame that for the effort he's put in at Suzuki that they wouldn't let him test the Kawi at Portimiao. Are they fearful of Kawi being direct competition to Suzuki in WSB. They should be worried about Ducati, Yamaha and Aprilia instead.

MarkyB you make a good point next year in WSB should even more interesting with Toseland and Crutchlow on the Yamaha, Biaggi on the RSV4, Rea on the Honda, and of course the Ducati boys. Hopefully Kawi will join the party. WSB continues to be the best roadracing series to watch in my opinion.

Hopefully Kawasaki will dedicate their previous MotoGP resources to winning in WSBK. With Vermuelen they have a capable rider who should be near the front if the bike is capable.

It will be interesting to see who they hire to be his teammate.

I'm not sure what to make of Suzuki. They pass on Ben Spies and now they are dumping their most successful rider and the only rider to win on their POS bike since the 4 stroke era began. Meanwhile, Loris still has a job? Must be a sponsorship issue.

I certainly wish him the best of luck, but heading back to Superbikes is a downward spiral to oblivion for most.

It might have been nice to see what he could have done on a better bike. I think he simply mailed it in this year not willing bin it a la Hopper. Who knows perhaps he can pull a Scott Russell and win one for Kawasaki!
