The problem with WSBK is not the lack of good riders it is the lack of competitive rides. Right now there are only 6 bikes that have a realistic chance of getting on a dry podium: 2 each from Kawi, Duc and Honda. Aprilia cannot seem to make a long term commitment to the series, Yamaha's efforts have thus far been at best disappointing, BMW will only operate through surrogates and does a poor job of supporting them, Suzuki abandoned SBK to chase imaginary glory in MotoGP and KTM pulled the plug on their litre-bike programs, both street and race. Small manufacturers haven't the budgets to compete at the world level and generally cannot meet the homologation requirements. If, and it's a very big if, Aprilia and/or Yamaha get their acts together that will increase the number of bikes fighting for a podium but there will still be far too many field-fillers
