Suzuki MGP 2015 for Sykes could be an option but with Laverty on Suzuki and DePuniet being very familiar with and working to develop the Suzuki not sure if he will go there, although Suzuki would be silly not to look at him as a viable option!!

Sykes has been through the ringer with development duties on the Kawasaki (by development, I mean feedback for development) not sure if he wants to do that again because that means a few years on the backfoot, possibly with no chance of (relative) success or challenge of victory even in the occasional races.

He may well stay at Kawasaki...good pay, top bike with all the possibility for success (for championships)...cannot say the same for MGP...unless he lands a Yamaha or Honda factory bike next year...2016 may be the year as things should even out with control ECU etc etc! by then he may think he is too old and just stay with WSBK anyway.
