If Savatgy continues to do well, does Cianciarulo

Move up to 450’s in 2020? I know Savatgy is under a one year contract, but he’s riding very impressively for a rookie. Does that tie Kawi’s hands if Cianciarulo decides that he wants to move up next year? Or do you think that PC Kawi keeps AC down with the #1 plate for next year? Also heard rumors of him being Kenny’s teammate in the future? Curious to see what happens.

I feel as though AC is going to stay down in the lites class for another season. Savatgy is riding very well though. Let's say that AC does move up to the 450 and there isn't a spot on Kawi 450 team where would he go? A lot of riders inked 2-year deals this past season. Would be a prime opportunity for JGR.

Both Honda guys are in a contract year.

I think AC will go to Honda alongside Kenny and Kawi will keep joey for another year until Forkner moves up

But Kenny has the option for 2 more years in his contract.

I have a hard time seeing them drop Seely.

I believe cole seely is only on a one year deal at Honda this year. Nothing against seely rad dude and rider but feel like if AC wins supercross title and outdoors or is real solid outdoors Honda will be throwing him some papers to sign that will put him on red big bike for 2020.

2/17/2019 10:46 AM

Could Tomac have enough this year?
Seely is doing better than anyone did think after his injury so he might stay Red another year like Ken. KTM and Husky seems full anyway so it will be difficult to find Factory seat. I dont see JGR Suzuki as option for guys like Savatgy or Cianciarulo.

I just don't think AC's style will translate well to a 450. I could be wrong but I look at some guys like Jordan Smith or Colt Nichols and think they could actually surprise because of their riding styles.

Could move to MotoConcepts for SX only.

I can see Seely being done after this year or next year.

-Seely
+Cianciarulo

If Seely wants to do another year then they can add him to MCR for SX only?

Why would JGR not be a good fit for Savatgy?

This will be Tomac’s last year at Kawasaki. I see him being replaced by Adam and Tomac going to Honda.

Don't see Tomac going to Honda when they have Roczen.

I Think 1 or the othet has Likely already signed with Honda
Joey or Adam
Likely Adam since he is Super close with everyone at Honda
But with Joey Believing that there was a Good chance of adam Moving up who's to say he hasn't already signed on with another team for next year , sometimes these deals happen way in advance, ya never know

I don't think Tomac is going to Honda, but Kenny is in a contract year so theoretically there could be an open spot there.

AC needs to stay down another year in SX and Forkner 2 years. These guys are only just now starting to show a mastery over SX. No need to rush up.

Savatgy is doing great in his spot and is safe for next year I would bet.

I disagree with this.

450 will be good for AC, he’s a big kid now and it will suit his skill set well.

Mark my words. Savagty will be on Yellow next year. JGR will clean house after this year. Reed will retire and hill obviously doesn’t train as he should. AC will replace him at Kawi.

Honda and Kawasaki want a SX title. Roczen is great but he is no longer fast enough. He got a huge contract with Honda as did Tomac with Kawasaki. Both riders have not been able to get them their SX title. I say Tomac to Honda and Roczen to JGR and Adam to Kawasaki.

Haha that might be the most wrong thing I’ve ever read.

Can AC stay down if he wins? I thought you had to move up if you win the title if you've been over 3 years in the class?

He would be able to stay in the 250 class and defend the title.

Ok, maybe it was the GPs that implemented that rule in MX2?

Anyways, is it impossible for Kawasaki to field 3 450 bikes in 2020?

Im highly doubtful he goes back to honda. Besides Chad Reed with Yamaha or MC with honda that doesn't typically happen and those were both a few more years later. Besides Eli left Honda because he didn't like the way it handled.

where does that put roczen? I doubt Honda gets rid of him also, I mean look at the current results.

|

2/17/2019 1:35 PM

AC will stay in 250s in 2020 so Savatgy can stay with Kawi. I can see JGR trying to get Savatgy though, so I'm curious to see if that goes anywhere.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Tomac and Anderson trade rides. Anderson would be a good replacement for Seely also. IMO the front runners would only go to JGR or Yamaha for good chunk of guaranteed money. Forkner and AC aren't gonna move up to 450 until they're forced too, Mitch won't let go of his title frontrunners that easily. If Plessinger does poorly outdoors, then Maybe Yamaha will try to rush Ferrandis or Colt Nichols up. Bagget deserves a factory ride too. McElrath points out this year right? ... Silly Season is gonna be ridiculous this year
