Kropo deflated my enthusiasm for the future of Nicky in this series. I still lament him taking the Honda route when Ducati were keen on continuing his factory ride into Wsbk.

"Senior executives inside HRC are said to have a very poor opinion of World Superbikes, viewing it as a waste of budget which they could be spending on MotoGP and Moto3." Kropo

What little faith I have in Honda to build a reasonable update to their Fossil-blade, and then mount a substantial support to race it in Wsbk has practically extinguished.


Prediction: Jrea, Sykes, Davies

VDM, NH top 10.

It's obvious Kawasaki racing intend to support their entry into Wsbk as thee premiere showcase, having given up entirely in GP. So basically I don't see this dynamic at all changing. Add to this HRC are struggling in MotoGP, so not only is it their priority, but by emergency and necessity it requires them to circle the wagons. Honda Wsbk might as well be dead in the water.

Here is a clip in Asian, so you'll understand what they're saying.

Don't you think Honda sold Nicky on the fact that they were going to give him an updated Honda at some point in order to sign him?

If so, do you feel they are just going to half ass a new bike, or just go back on what they promised him?
