Now imagine if Kawasaki dropped to the MotoGP weight limit , put a set of Michelin's on it, put Carbon brakes on it, and dropped the rev limit

Why/what ? Is there a rev limit on moto GP bikes, heard plenty of references to the 10r setting lap times with on par factory exotica over the last two years.

That would be exciting to see JR in MotoGP in green.

Wtf? Mm would eat Jonny for breakfast, end of . It’s all bullshit trying to compare them, chalk and cheese , so speculation is frankly bollocks.. :smt023
Let’s see what Scott does next year as remotely one way of comparing , but even that’s clutching at straws .

It is impressive, but it's also the reason that the Big Four's flagship liter bikes are far better as track weapons than as streetbikes, esp with the super-tall gearing so many have nowadays.

I'm with Firebeast on this one... MotoGP and WSBK bikes are completely different machines, with hardly anything in common apart from being 2 wheeled vehicles. That said, they will need 2 completely different riding styles to get the most out of each one. Rea actually did a few MotoGP races back in the day but didn't exactly hit the headlines...
