    It proves they wanna win by taking factory control and getting Moriwaki on board as the bike hasn't set the world on fire, yet.

    But the choice of Kiyonari is a strange one. Very late in his career. Camier is OK, but not a world beater.

    I thought Bradl would be a great choice as he still goes well in MotoGP rides.

    Hmm.

    I like Camier, he never seems to be on a good bike though, other than his BSB winner.

    Kiyo is a strange choice though, as you say. His last few seasons in BSB have been slightly embarrasing.

    Camier is awesome on the right bike, but he's had a tough time with choices lately.

    Kiyo... weird one... on his day he's a missile... well.. he was 10 years ago !

    Moriwaki (not Yoshimura) are an odd choice to run the team, they've run teams in Japan before but I'm unaware of them running a team in a World Championship.

    I really hope Honda can make a bike to show Camier's true potential. He seems to be better than all the bikes he's been given he had some epic rides on that shithouse MV. I might be proved wrong but I think he is better than the bikes he's had so far.

    Edit: Does seem good news that Honda are bothered about WSB, and Ducati have the new V4 and BMW are back as a factory team. WSB has been pretty dull recently so lets hope this improves it.

    One puzzle for me is Melandri. Totally fearless with the Ducati bucking and weaving flat out, then they dump him.

    The puzzle is over, he has a ride on a Yamaha WSB for next year. No doubt he will wring it's neck, no like of balls with this guy.

    "Marco Melandri will remain on the World Superbike grid in 2019 after signing a deal to join the incoming satellite GRT Yamaha outfit alongside World Supersport champion Sandro Cortese."
