Kevin Kane Posted June 21, 2012 Report Share Posted June 21, 2012 Does anyone else marvel at five out of six manufacturers vying for wins at every SBK round? Five of the six manufacturers in the series have been on the podium this year. In alphabetical order they are: Aprilia BMW Ducati Honda Kawasaki If Tom Sykes ever learns how to "save" his tires, he will win for Kawasaki making it five different factories winning races this year. Suzuki appears to be the only manufacturer still trying to find its footing and Yamaha decided not to compete but five out of six manufacturers who commited to SBK putting riders on the box is really impressive to me at least. I can't think of another series that has such keen competition between factories than SBK this year. That said, you can keep MotoGP in 2012. With Lorenzo apparently wanting it more than Stoner and no one else (so far) able to match and maintain their pace, it's a foregone conclusion that it's Lorenzo/Yamaha's to lose in that series, but what do what do the rest of you think?
