Hopefully, Japanese manufacturers will increase their support/R&D, etc. to keep things competitive. Hannspree is sponsoring WSBK through 2010, I imagine we'll keep seeing Hondas in the paddock, as long as RTK wants to run them.
The Air Waves Ducati team were rumoured to be going to WSB's but they are now confirmed for the BSB championship after the governing body gave them special dispensation to race. This was required as Ducati Corsa insist the bike must be raced with "small" though significant engine mods !!!!
And the reason for going to 1200cc was ?????????????

Colin Wright (Team Manager Airwaves Ducati)) does this every year.
I'm off to WSB.
No, I'm not.
It's worn a bit thin with most.

Paul Bird who has previously run factory Ducati's is going to WSB with Greg Lavilla but will run Honda's.

If Ducati win and the racing is close, you'll here no complaint from me but I'm not sure that we have a level playing field although that has never hindered the series in the past.
How did Scott Russell ever wrestle it away from Ducati on that Muzzy Kawasaki.
He was/is the man.

I'm real excited to see Tamada on the Kwak... he showed SO much potential in 03 and 04 on the RC211V. He was Rossi's main rival there for a while. So he's obviously got the still, I just hope the new 08 Kwak can be competitive. If so, throw his name into the fray for podium finishers.

As far as Checa is concerned... he just needs to retire.

I predict Sufogulu is going to win 3 races this year...
