@ trr & SC

Last I heard he's (optimistically, in my opinion) vying for a MotoGP birth next season. Probably gonna be a CRT team. Also read he's (again, optimistically) saying he'll only join a team if it's competitive.

I think he's probably the luckiest guys in the paddock. I'm sure Kawasaki could've cut short his contract. I really felt for him for quite a while and stood behind him, but of late, he's turned into a bit of a premadonna. He needs to get his body healthy, fully recover, THEN get fit. I honestly believe the honourable thing would've been to cut his contract short and say he was unfit to ride the contract out.
