It's a yet another example of corporate greed and corruption that, like cancer, has been growing and spreading throughout MotoGP .. The old fashioned handshake and the honoring of an agreement has degenerated to the point where it means less than the paper it's written on.. The bottomfeeding lowlifes that are the core of this debacle should be ashamed of themselves.. But sadly I'm sure they're not. All they care about is the almighty $... And the sport I've loved and followed for most of my life is becoming more and more a pale shadow of its once glorious self.. To have the audacity to drag the illustrious name and impeccable reputation of one of the GREATEST GrandPrix racers who EVER LIVED Through the vile and despicable mire they obviously thrive in is beyond reprehensible ... How utterly disgusting..I hope Kevin KICKS THEIR SORRY ASSES IN COURT..

Like the old sayin goes: DONT MESS WITH TEXAS.

Kevin attends 2 to 3 GP's a year and you want us to believe he lives for Motogp.. He's looking for the quick buck and thats it. These x racers are only seen to promote while getting paid for it or else not seen, just as the race fan they should be.

@ Armando Sarmiento

With respect, we've had the reply from COTA so there must be some sour grapes on Schwantz's part. If everyone told the truth these lawyers would be out of a job.

Will agree that the 'sport' (that is MotoGP) is no longer a 'sport' but a cut throat commercial jungle riddled with corruption. But then what 'sport' these days is clean??????

As for Schwantz, he won 1 world title and was known for his Evel Knievel crashes (that ended his career)
