Good Kenan for the 2012 Championship. In terms of the move which they did mention in the last race that he'll be racing with them in 2013. Wonder why the change has happened, has the Kawi factory decided to make the Indian Mahi team the unofficial factory team? Interesting they're pairing Sofuoglu with Foret as those two don't seem to get along. Should be interesting fireworks for next season. The Mahi team will be tough next year but would have been nice to see Kenan try WSB again if he could get his fitness up for the 2 race format.

In the USA it seems as if Kawi is going to the 636 cc for the ZX6R but guessing they may have both the 600 and 636 to qualify it for WSS. In the US they may be able to race the 636 with weight restrictions for the added CC depending on the race sanctioning body.

Andrew if you watched the races Kenan got penalized several times for aggressive techniques and cutting a corner otherwise he would have won more races. But agree he needs to calm down and be a bit more respectiful and ride within the rules.

Champ or no champ, I just hope that Foret puts him in his place next year... Some of his moves were pretty dangerous and I was surprised that he didn't recieve a ban through 2012 season... He needs to calm down or he will kill someone!!!!!!!

Not surprised at Sofuoglu staying put. Proved utterly useless on anything other than supersport. Looking forward to him getting whooped next season. Objectionable little creep in my book Im afraid.

Seems to me that the team has done the dirty on Dan Linfoot who put the bike on the podium working his backside off!
Even taking into account Talmasci's 125gp title I fail to see what he brings to the team based on results since he left 125's.
Lets hope Dan gets a better offer!
