Ken Roczen Signs with Honda

Not a big surprise in the MX/SX world but he should give Dunge a good run next season in supercross.

Is the Honda a championship Calibre bike, or did he just take the money. Its been a while, {like 20 years} since Honda truly had the best bike. Carmichael won a couple of titles on one in the early 2000's, but most say that was due to Carmichael. Since the 450 era began, Honda has been shit. In that time, Suzuki, Yamaha, Kawasaki and KTM have won multiple titles and Honda none.

Honda has been spending money like crazy on personal, retooling, and riders, so there is no excuse left. Roczen is the best rider they have had in a while, and probably the only other rider who could go the distance and win a championship besides Dunge.

The KTM must be one hell of a bike. Dungey is a very good rider, but I never rated him with the likes of Carmichel, Stewart , Villapotto, McGrath etc etc. More in the mold of Chad Reed, really good but not dominant even though he dominates his current competition.
