Rumours are circulating that Kawasaki has shut down its factory MotoGP squad with immediate effect.
Proves again that Kawi hasn't been a serious, focused contender, or even a significant factory competitor in MotoGP in recent years. At least not in the 5 years I've been watching them suck. Ok, Jacque and Nakano each got a podium like once (2006 I think). Other than that they get beaten up by satellite Yam/Duc/Honda teams. Aside from the starting grid being smaller, you'll hardly notice they're gone.
