While his reaction was understandable if the accusations of double dealing by his personal manager/team manager are true, he may come to regret his comments about Honda as KTM aren't likely to be producing a competitive MotoGP bike in the next few years when he'll be wanting to move up. HRC have huge influence in the sport and Japanese factories remember these things. Sheene left Yamaha, bad-mouthing them and swearing he would never ride for them again. Then in 500GPs, when he left Suzuki for Yamaha again, because he thought the YZR was better than the RG, he kept complaining that he wasn't getting the same level of factory support as long time Yamaha rider Roberts. If true, it would hardly be surprising given the circumstances.
