Sykes is quietly confident & seems mentally pretty tough. The WC after all the seasons trying HAS to make him even harder to beat.

Seems the ZX10R is now the bike to be on, and Sykes has everything in place to make him favourite for the WC in 2014 too. Looks like Laverty may be on a Suzuki - not supposed to be as good as the bike he just left, and no continuity. Melandri gets a top bike but again it'll be his 1st season on it. Guinters? he has the bike and the continuity, but he's got to contend with Melandri & the fact that he'll now be the only non-Italian rider of the pair - and Melandri WILL milk the 'partisan patriotism card' for all that its worth.

I truly hope this is a long partnership!

I have ALWAYS been a Kawasaki fan and have supported Sykes since he joined up. The peoples' bike with a nice guy.

IF Sykes ever decides to jump ship to MotoGP, I sincerely hope it's with Kawasaki planning a return. He has shown he can lead the way on bike development with a strong team (Provec) behind the operation.
