Well, at Valencia, he was about 4 seconds off the race pace. I believe he ran a 1'38 on his third lap? That's not too bad. He'll get some more seat time, that's for sure. There's an article about how he went so fast on the bike in RRW. But honestly, it has a lot to do with the electronics, I believe. Just get the bike in the corner, whack it and let the computers do the rest. Hopkins has been saying how much easier it is to ride the Kawasaki because the MM ecu is so much better than the one on the Suzuki.
