certainly has potential to be interesting. as we witnessed last season it looked absolutely dreadful for JR with the superbe start of Bautista/Ducati ... so it will likely be a few rounds in before you see some idea of whats what

lowes will be interesting challenge if he can get his consistency better. very capable rider but seems to loose it at times

redding will be intresting along with his character.

i think Honda will take a bit of time to get going tbh ... we saw the issues/implications of upgrades not coming quick enuff for the BMW outfit ... or whether that was skyes just talking his usual. HRC need to put action into their talking and develop the bike as quickly as the team needs it. But will be good to see them investing in the sport again.

certainly sounds and has the capability to be a bit more challenging but like Liverpool, JR's side of the kwak garage know how to win and have the mentality to want to go on and do a better season and build on their credability ...

Some cracker racing on the opening of the season. Of course Phillip island is not a gauge for how the c’ship will go but wow there is a serious field for contention and will give JR a run.

Lowes, Redding, Toprack, MVDM, are definitely on the scene.

some work already done on all the Yam’s.

good to see Honda back and looks promising in these early stages.

Superpole and race 2 was great to watch.

Want a bet lol super 7
Could well be, he won't get it easy with so many credible threats. Don't forget Locatelli and Mahias moving up to big bikes, neither are scared of swapping paint, Redding will still be there, the Hondas are coming, Gerloff will take a leap, Toprak can win, Rinaldi on a factory Duke.

New BMW coming, a superbike special

He can, but when was the last time we really saw that? I'd say years ago rather than rounds. The man stagnated the championship soo much they changed it twice to liven it up..

Look how hard he had to ride on Ten kate honda imo he would have won more championships if he was on a better bike.
Last year at start of season bautista was unstoppable on Duke.
But can see it far more harder n tougher next year which will be great spectacle

Yeah absolutely, they're only mildly comparable but I reckon WSBK 2021 will be a lot closer to todays BSB race, which is not a bad thing.. GP has even been infinitely more watchable without Marquez, peak excitement generally faded in FP3 after his 2nd trip to the litter.

I think Kawasaki is gonna have to bring more than johnny to the grid next year as theres no more left in the current zx10r.
Redding will have learned a lot this year too.
