Sykes was fantastic in 2012. It seems though that the Kawa (while super-fast) still struggles a bit with tyre wear, while Sykes has to be so physical & on the limit for the entire race. That effort & commitment along with tyre issues meant Sykes was the hardest working rider - pretty tough to compete over 2 long races with guys with better bikes (over race distance).
The bike (& TS) has the speed, but it looks like they still need to find a bit more over full race distance. looking fwd to 2013 WSBK - it could well be the best (and last??) great & competitive WSBK season.
