Good luck Kenan, you will need good support for the electronics though. Tom's hard on the brakes and hard out of the corners style seems to work for the ZX-10R/Pirelli, so I would have to imagine Kenan's style wouldn't be too far off.

If WSBK/WSS got rid of the electronics it would be the riders making most of the difference, this is not the case right now, the electronics can be a great negative in the case they are not working with the rider.

Factory machinery, or customer spec?

Aboard Mahi Racing Team, or fitted into the Motocard team with Mahi Sponsorship for 2014?

If he gets the motocard ride, he may well give fans a treat with his agressive style. Otherwise better stay with SSP600

Id say he didnt reach success with honda, cause the blade wasnt so good at that time.
Instead the zx10r, is probably the best bike on the sbk grid right now, so why not?

It would be great to see Kenan back on a Superbike because he has something to prove that he can be competitive in that class. Hopefully, he'll take what he learned from his failed Ten Kate attempt in WSB and improve his endurance to be able to do the 2 race format in superbikes this time around. If Mahi can give him a competitive bike there is no reason he can't be around top five.
