"When I first tried the bike, I was immediately impressed by the front's feedback and behavior," added Corti, who spent last year riding a Kawasaki-FTR in MotoGP. "We still need to work on the rear, especially to improve traction and turning. Kawasaki, as far as that goes, is the target. I know it's going to be tough, but I'm happy to finally have a two-year project in front of me. I live in Como, just a few miles from the factory, so I often drop by to see the development. I know the guys over there really know what they're doing. I'm confident I can do much better than in MotoGP."
