He is a pretty battle-hardened rider in the Supersport category. With Lascorz, Laverty and Sofuoglu all moving on, he might bring the title back to Kawasaki. Though I think Chaz and Gino won't make it easy for him.

I would just like to take this moment to congratulate Katsuaki Fujiwara on what has been a successful career in WSS, i'm guessing he will be in JSB1000 rather than the ST600 class in Japan next year. Good luck in the future Fujiwara.

Broc Parkes will be a steady consistent top 5 rider get a few podiums and maybe a win but he won't win the championship, I would like to see Gino Rea get on the Kawasaki, he is having a test with the PBM Kawasaki squad on the 2011 Kawasaki SBK so i don't know what that means but he definetely deserves a factory ride after the 2010 season, if he gets on this bike or the Ten Kate he will definetely be a title contender in 2011.

It says on this post that he's is leaving for next season i don't whats right but if he does leave for Japan next season then Gino Rea deserves the ride.
