Sounds like he has a lot of options to think about!
It's unlikely the MV Agusta will be competitive but even if it is he'd probably be better off in Moto 2. If he can make a name for himself there or dare I say it, win the championship, then some big offers would be coming his way.

If he wants to get in MotoGP the Moto2 is only change for him. It almost impossible to get good (not back running CRT) ride in MotoGP even if you are WSBK champion. The rules are chancing wsbk bikes will get slower and it will be even harder to get in GP. Ofcourse you cuold arque that Dorna owning both series the change will be easier but I dont think so.

Definitely stay in production series, he would just get swamped in moto 2 and become just another rider.

With the right package in wsbk he can be right up there at the front in 1-2 years them he may catch the eye of motogp teams.

There's also no harm in staying in wsbk and nailing that, look at troy baylis, troy corser etc, both great riders but the majority of their seasons spent in esbk and both will go down as legends in my book!
