It's fair enough really.
Kawasaki is the only Japanese manufacturer that has invested in a genuinely new bike in recent times. The Fireblade, R1 and GSX are all long in the tooth and showing their age.
Under the circumstances, Kawasaki's dominance is hardly a surprise.

the work that Kawasaki is investing to both teams is a direct result in their belief that the ZX10 is a weapon against other adversaries. there is a reason why both riders, most importantly, Sykes is having an excellent season. I do think that KRT will also dominate next season. This season is almost a wrap. Triple crown winner is inevitable.

Heavy industries has put it's eggs in the right basket. Suzuki is prepared to send its GP machine into the Lions den (possible failure awaits, though I hope not) and Kawasaki focused itself properly. Domination of one segment vs. sub-par results in two...

right, i know well the circunstances, no other japanese manufacturer full support than Kawasaki, and all japanese bikes are old versions...
but since they stay out of MotoGP with 2010 black Hayate team,
they focused on comeback full power in SBK, they took Vermeulen and Sykes, do a well year with the old bike at the same time they caught data for new bike, they step up SSP star Lascorz, then the accident and the come of Baz from SSTK, they are working hard and stay in a good pace, so they are fightin with the top, if anyother japanese manufacturer would offer new bike and full support just 1 or 2 years ago, we could compare...
but great for them, i cheers every race
