There is no any chance for any brands and any riders who can compete with Sofuoglu at 2014 except Yamaha Factory Supported R6 bike. This bike is really fantastic and did 3 win on 5 years.. Before Kenan, Kawasaki was just like todays Suzuki or MV Agusta thats for sure. Kawasaki grew up with Kenan's improvements on bike. But Yamaha just need a normal class rider like (Chaz-Sam) to compete with Kenan because bike is just perfect except Top Speed, rider is not so important when he supported by Yamaha factory, bike will make him a champion or at least title contender...

I like Kenan in WSS, it means that if you want to be champ you've got to beat the best on the best. Sam did it this year (given that Kenan had a couple of DNF's) but if you want it next year you'll have to slay the dragon!

He's a one trick pony, He can only ride Supersport, didn't impress in Moto2 and failed to show in World Superbike and still finds the need to ram into people to get to the front - Crutchlow, Laverty, Foret and Lowes to name just a few.

green monster you know nothing about KNN. These are no excuses but concentration is one of the most thing for success on motorsport you know, check the Sofuoglu's life he lost his brother on motorcycle racing at 2008 at the end of season he failed, and check 2011 he lost his father beginning of season because of cancer then 2011 is just failed. And also don't forget he made his debut with brand new CBR1000RR fireblade which is ryuichi kiyonari and carlos checa also failed to ride this bike. He rode the worst bike on the grid at 2008. His bike also not same with Kiyo and Checa, his team was Ten Kate JR Team and its kind of superstock pretty modified moto, it is normal to fail with this bike exactly. and if you want to look moto2 he made his debut with finishing 5th place at estoril also he had +8 second gap with 2nd place rider. Today no one can do +8 gap on moto2 bikes he just rocks tho moto2 bike but as i said he lost his concentration on 2011 lost his father and technomag team lost t

...technomag team lost their sponsors. there was no supporter behind KNN like other European sponsored rich boys on GP. He have a talent to ride on motoGP factory teams for sure, we know that exactly. He already beat Sebastien Charpentier 2 time world champ, Andrew Pitt 2 time world Champ, Eugene Laverty, Michele Pirro, Johnny Rea, Cal Crutchlow, Chaz Davies etc....

All he need is just good moto2 ride to beat all grid but there is no chance for this. On MotoGP grid there are lots of politics and KNN haters because of his belief, religion, rights and region. He is not a Brititish guys wake up! He is just a Turkish guy on the world arena! Nobody wants him... Never..

Interesting that Kenan wants to stay at WSS. Maybe he'll wait for the full EVO Superbike grid in 2015, or maybe he'll try win 1 more wss title and retire on a high. Not that he's doing badly right now, if he manages a win at Jerez he'll have won more races than the current champ =)

Yes he wants to stay in wss because thats all hes ever won at. And superglue, dont bring religion and beliefs into this. Thats his personal life and of no interest or anything to do with being a motorcycle racer.

He twice came very close to winning the title in 1000 cc bikes, in Superstock, 2004 and 05. In 05 he literally lost at the last corner. It was a ****** that his Superbike stint collided with the happless '08 fireblade, the bike was new back then, unsorted and even worse than it is now. In moto2 the team was underfunded and clueless, in his first ever race Kenan highsided the bike in warm up and the team couldn't even put together one of the clip ons properly. It worked loose in his first ever race and cost him the win. Still finished 5th which was (very) credible.
