It is amazing to see Tom's journey from an also ran to world champion. I rate him but I remember coupler or few years ago wishing and hoping he will do well and that Kawasaki will give him a good bike....

When they let him go at Yamaha, I was gutted for him because he had a good was just against the back drop of a brilliant season for Spies.....anyway He is here...the new King!!!!!

The rise of Tom and Kawasaki has been a good one indeed the man is in the process of rewriting the history books not in a Marc Marquez way but the Tom Sykes way.

Looking back at the past and how bad Kawasaki was viewed it was worse than Ducatis rep right now. Don't count Ducati out completely they will be back sometime in the future.

Sykes has had some luck to get where he is right now but he definitely doesn't need luck to keep doing what he's been doing luck isn't consistent for three years in a row.

AIm happy for both Tom and Kawasaki, 4sure Motogp is the place where you put your best Technology and that shows how capable one manufacter is of making a good Motorcycle, But i think that After so many bad moments in Motogp, Kawasaki did a great move in orther to Rise the Image of the Brand, Wsbk is the place where you put your Road model racing has hard has possible, its Tuning your Road model insted of making such a especific machine has Motogp is, and i have to say aim really proud that Kawasaki could use there experience in Motogp and Figth Back with a great creation, this new Zx10r is not only on Level its the best Japonese Superbike at the moment and its very nice to see that they can beat Aprilias and Ducatis.. 4sure we know that when Honda or Yamaha Lunch there new Superbikes, maybe Kawasaki will face problems again but for now Kawasaki is doing a great Job and aim shure that when they feel ready they wil lattack again in Motogp, just like Suzuki is doing now...

Convenient for Honda and Yamaha and even Suzuki that they can say that are not figthingh against Kawa in Oficial Mod, but was not Kawasaki that ask then to leave..I understand what you whant to say to me but If Honda and Yamaha and Suzuki are using the Publicity in Motogp to sell bikes and didnt upgrade there road models is there probleme.. i know that at least Honda or Yamaha or even Suzuki can lunch new models and maybe more competitive then the corrent Ninja but first they have to do that, thats why i say at the MOMENT the best Japonese Bike on the Market that is winning every review and that has been supported with racing Glory in Wsbk that use the Road models is the Ninja zx 10r, and for that they dont even need electronics because in BSB you can also see that who rides one Zx10r have one competitive bike.

A budget as big as any Motogp team and more rider aids than any Motogp bike has risen Sykes to the top, some very hypocritical people on here. At least Avintia have dropped the kwack for next season.

RSMick: A budget as big as any Motogp team and more rider aids than any Motogp bike has risen Sykes to the top, some very hypocritical people on here. At least Avintia have dropped the kwack for next season.

RSMick you really dont have a clue do you son???? check out Honda, Yamaha and Ducatis Motogp budget then look up how much Kawasaki spend on WSB. You'll then see how making statements without finding out the facts make you sound like a silly little boy
