News broke last night that Monster Energy Kawasaki has terminated its agreement with their 450 pilot Davi Millsaps, and it’s with immediate effect.

Now that’s a surprise! This will leave Kawasaki without a factory rider until the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series kicks into life on May 16, which is when Wil Hahn should make his return to the team.

We’re blown away as much as you with this news and we don’t know for sure what went down.


Racer X is reporting that they had heard a rumour earlier in the day but couldn’t say for sure until the press release dropped in their inbox. Racer X go on to speculate a possible reason for the sudden contract termination…

“Based on what we’ve heard, and what we’ve seen when this has happened in the past, we know that this falls into the personal services or personal conduct part of the contract. It’s worth noting that Kawasaki has never terminated a deal with a factory rider just due to results. We also doubt this comes from Millsaps’ side-there have been zero rumors about him trying to get out of his deal or jump to another team.”

It’ll be interesting to see what happens next for both Monster Energy Kawasaki and Millsaps. Where will he find a ride next? And who will fill the now vacant spot in the team?

We’ll keep you updated on any news that we hear but this is sure to be the talk of the paddock on Saturday in Santa Clara.

Monster Energy Kawasaki press release:

Monster Energy Kawasaki has terminated its agreement with Davi Millsaps effective immediately.

Unfortunately this means our factory race team will not be competing at the final three rounds of the Monster Energy Supercross season but we will be cheering on our 250SX support team Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki as well as TwoTwo Motorsports’ Chad Reed and Josh Grant in the 450SX class.

With Wil Hahn continuing to recover from his injury, we are working hard on our motocross program and the factory team is looking forward to getting back to the track for the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season opener at Hangtown on May 16.
