rea... young, fast & promising. kiyo not the jap for the job.


Kiyo is the best jap rider there is, he is seriously fast and Honda have a lot of faith in him. Rea is young and quick but Kiyo has him beat, move them both to international level and i think Kiyo would move further ahead based on his experience and that fact that he already exists in a foreign culture. Kiyo is ready to move on.

Well, I guess that answers a few questions. Yes Dorna wants certain nationalities in the Series and I guess "The Hoff" may be on the way out.

Man... A lot of seats are going to be open from the looks of it. I don't hear a lot about anyone else other than Lorenzo coming over this year from 250.

Haga isn't, he is solid but hes not got the edge that makes the difference. He will always be the nearly man, and more significantly he has missed his GP window of opertunity and wont ever make it.

Sorry to repeat myself but:

Well a lot of non-Americans would think the same about Spies, he's done nothing to prove himself apart from win on a dominant bike against a team-mate who's frankly, past it.

Then don't go blurting out the same about another rider just because they don't happen to be American.

Considering how much raw speed he has shown, how quickly he got to grips with the famously challenging British circuits and competative championship i would have more faith in him. I would rate him above Spies if i was looking for a Gp rider to take from a national series.
