    Because 2018 is right now and no longer silly.

    So right now we have:
    VR46, MM93 and MV25 two more years.

    Bagnia (sp?) from Moto 2 going to Pramac Ducati

    Tech 3 going to KTM
    Zarco linked to KTM
    Suzuki hunting Lorenzo
    Dovi turned down Ducati's first offer
    Petrux gunning for factory Ducati seat

    What else?

    Before MarcVDS and Suzuki rumor I thought Alex M would replace Luthi, but I'm not so sure (if MarcVDS signs with Suzuki).

    Joan Mir to Marc VDS Suzuki or replace AI at factory Suzuki.

    I'd kinda like to see J Lo on the Suzuki. I'm not a huge fan of his, mostly because of his attitude, but he was amazing to watch on the Yamaha when he was on. I think he could gel with that bike and be a threat.

    As good as Marquez is nobody is as good as J Lo when he was turning identical lap times like a metronome. I've never seen his equal in that regard. It was not human.

    Lol ducati is in a pickle...

    They know the only person winning is AD currently.

    I don’t see Lorenzo and then going another year unless something drastic happens.

    So my guess is Ducati offers Dovi a huge raise and they elevate Miller to factory provided he keeps doing well.

    Unless they do a direct swap with AI and Suzuki which I would also love!

    ....or Petrux, he's Italian and been on the Duc for longer. I mean they're already giving him the GP18 and Miller is on last year's GP17

    I see Miguel and binder staying orange for a while.

    That’s the whole point of Ktm in all classes.

    They have ALL their cards on those 2

    I read it but can't find where Yamaha did the official announcement where he signed. Yeah, it'll happen but strange shit can happen until he does.

    How about Alex Marquez to Repsol? Doesn’t have the talent of broski, but obviously has the ties.

    Thanks, I couldn't remember reading that he had signed.

    It would be interesting to see an all Spanish team and the brother link would be a first BUT what a bad business decision....True the instant visibility would be huge but so would the hate. I think Honda would be afraid.
