Haga replaces Hutchinson at Swan Yamaha

Noriyuki Haga will replace the injured Ian Hutchinson in the Swan Yamaha team alongside 2011 BSB champion Tommy Hill. The 36-year-old Japanese rider has been signed for the full season while Hutchinson will revert to the Supersport class once he has made a full recovery from the broken leg he sustained in practice for the Revolution show at the Carole Nash...

Nitro going to BSB

I thought I was done with BSB after Hopper left.  I've been a fan of Mr. Haga for some time now and I hope he finds success at BSB.  He's a madman and hungry for a title.  I have to add BSB to my long list of races and other sports to watch....GOOOOOO Nitro Nori!!

The Fans Want It

Hopkins was massively popular last year, Nori will be to. There is always interest in Chris Walker.

The Fans like to see the Ex WSB and GP Stars.

Haga WAS a madman...

I think that's the point made by others here 'gold8368'. Haga's now and old man and the seat could be used for an 'UP AND COMING' rider as apposed to a, with all due respect, has-been. Yeah, more bums on seats etc but i'd rather be watching a future star instead of a fading one.

I'd rather be watching Haga. He is a legend with the Fans in Britain and hugely popular. Which is something that can't always be said about riders from other countries......... outside Britain.

I can understand anyone that would rather see 'new blood' taking the ride at swan yamaha. On the other side though the organisers of BSB must be rubbing their hands together coz as far as getting punters through the gate they couldn't have landed many bigger names than Nori Haga. I know he's been 'always the bridesmaid' but a more exciting rider you will not find. Will he win the BSB title? I doubt it but he'll make a lot of people happy trying

Noris finest moment? Hockenheim 2000 race2. Do yourself a favour, look it up on YouTube

we all love haga what a racer and i will enjoy seeing him

but i do want to see more young talent getting the top rides, we are getting the benefits of both leons syksey shakey laverty  crutchlow getting in wsb thanks to early starts in bsb 

be nice to see how haga gets on with new R1
