In strange news...
Online publication Speedweek.com has reported that Moto2 rider Dominique Aegerter will be testing a Kawasaki “prototype” machine in Jerez later this month on Michelin tyres. The Swiss rider allegedly made contacts during his test with Avintia Racing last season, when he rode the Avintia Kawasaki bike, and has since been asked to provide his feedback once more. Details about the bike or why the test is being done have not been revealed. Kawasaki has not been in MotoGP since 2008, and has not made any official announcements about a return.
Yet Kawasaki says NO COMEBACK....?"Yes, I will test on 26 and 27 January with Kawasaki in Jerez. My team has threaded the, as it did the test with Avintia. The test team of Kawasaki is working there with me. I will drive a prototype. The invitation to this test came directly from the factory. I have a few people met at the test in Barcelona that are involved in the Kawasaki project. What I will test exactly, I do not know yet. The machine is however equipped with Michelin tires. But not with those who are using the 2016 MotoGP class"
