One of those strange riders that Dominate and look pure class at one level and everyone expects them to do it at the higher level but they never do.It's not like he was in poor teams in moto2 or WSBKs either.
Don't get me wrong i'm not slating the guy, as a supersport rider you'll be hard pushed to find better.

People judge Kenan credentials on a Superbike or Moto2 based on one season. People need time to adapt to different series. I think given enough time on a Superbike or Moto2 Kenan would find his way up to the front of the field. I'm hoping to see him in World SBK next year.

If I remember correctly he rode a CBR1000RR in WSBK, the same bike Max Neukirchner rode later without success as well. On that Honda only Rea is more or less competitive, except the Checa-Miller pairing. I guess - no matter how I do not like Kenans hotheaded behaviour sometimes - he deserves a second chance on a really competitive bike, until then it is pointless calling him an only-SSP-rider. I hope Kawasaki use their brain and give him at least a test ride on the 10R at the end of the season. Love him or hate him, he certainly makes the races more exciting.
