Not Likely

I can't see how he would get a ride in Motogp with Honda. They already have Pedrosa, Stoner, Simoncelli, and Toni Ellias. I think Dovi might be going to Greseni if he doesn't improve his performance next year.

Honda will also be looking in Moto2. Espacially the newly crowned 125cc champion Mark Marquez. Will be interesting to see how he performs in Moto2, and he is already sponsored by Red Bull.

Rea needs to win WSBK, and even then he will be right down in the order for being selected to ride Honda bike.

Where to go?

Where will Johnathon Rea go in 2012? As PPatel3d has pointed out Honda aren't exactly short of riders or drowning in spare bikes. Also the 1000s will not be anything like the old 990s. Electronics have moved on since then and we have to as well.

which bike..??

 

Here it is the answer to my other post....give him a ride on the suzuki....it WILL be a better bike than the 800...and it would be a great stepping stone for johnny into the premier class....

And before the onslaught of negative suzuki comments...As per other thread....suzuki are puuting more time into 1000cc than 800cc

Bring it on JR on a suzy 1000....top 6 finish i reckon....
