WSBK » Castrol Honda has 'look of a winner', says ten Kate

Shrugging off the notion of being under pressure to live up to a famous name, Ronald ten Kate reckons that if the new Castrol Honda CBR1000RR goes anything like as quick as it looks in 2011, it will be a regular winner in the World Superbike Championship

Ronald's comments emphasising that this is a privateer effort are interesting, Honda needs to get behind them more because WSBK is where the action is and what sells bikes. Romours are that Honda is bringing out a 1000cc V4 so that could mean a heavier presence in WSBK, and if HRC know what they are doing, they'll stick with Ten Kate.
But this year They've got Rea on the (great looking IMO!)Fireblde with Ten Kate, and luckily for them, that's a tip-top combination. Possible title?

So who is wrong now?

I said a couple of days ago in the another article that Honda DOES NOT have factory evolvement in WSBK! It's all privateers! but everyone laughed. You think you know a thing about Honda.

Do you honestly think if Honda had factory presence in WSBK they wouldn't be winning titles frequently? think again...
