ASPAR TEAM supremo Jorge Martinez is reportedly in talks to take over the Kawasaki MotoGP team following revelations that the Japanese manufacturer was planning to pull out of the 2009 MotoGP championship.

‘Negotiations to take over the two Kawasaki bikes have started,’ former 80cc and 125 cc world champion Martinez - who already has teams in the 125 and 250 classes - has told Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport. ‘I don't know with certainty when or if this opportunity will become reality. I’m willing to negotiate. We’ll see.’
