Yes, Haga would be a good choice for marketing reason but as I see from the BSB-results he is not even a front runner there...and he must be very expensive. :( Vermeulen has no chance I think, he probably do not have a good relationship with Kwak any more. After his last race, I would say (after Haga) give Lorenzo Lanzi a shot...he was a factory Ducati rider next to Bayliss and was not bad at all. We saw that he did not forget how to ride, a bit of a lottery but I see no better option. Or...wait, put Rossi on the Kwak, he would be on a better bike than the Duke right now! WSB would be really awesome. :)

Well said aeaventures! All these other riders that have been talked about have had a good chance already and getting on a bit, some past their sell by date a little! Give the young lad a go, he's shown he's got plenty of speed.

If Kawasaki wanted Salom, why weren't they prepared to help Pedercini get a replacement?

Maybe that is code for Pedercini wanted too much compensation for buying out Saloms contract?

Damian Cudlin is the only rider I can think of who is available and might be good enough.

Personally I would like to see Lorenzo Lanzi get the ride - if not, I hope he rides the rest of the WSS season and the bike is fast enough for him to show his talent.

It would be interesting to see what Baz could do, but his starts were poor in BSB and good starts are key in WSBK.
