Yeah, but it all means nothing.
Multiple pole positions.
Quick practice laps.
But he can't do it in the races. Time after time, he starts well but then just fades.
Until he can put it all together over race distance, it's just all hot air.

I think kawasaki engine has an to explosive top end.
the streetbike was focused on high revs and a torque that sets best at over 11.000 rpm
so it has no torque, and all the power kick in at a certain rev and eats the tyres.
prob the electronics to?
the should tune at a more torque spec engine

d4: WSBKs will be slowed down too. MotoGP lobby will take care of it... they can't allow production bikes to be faster than the glorified "prototypes".

@ moms apple pie.

maybe kawasaki should try to run on your moms apple pie then?!

maybe you can tell what wrong then! why the bike just eats tyres.
Maybe a crock of horsh it in the exhaust.? because you talk smart about pie and s#-it.

honda Yamaha suzuki bmw all try to find some mid rpm power. the rsv4 has enough i say. and ducati alot.
so that leaves only kawasaki.
p.s. you should read more....and don't talk to much
