KAWASAKI RACING TEAM

Having secured a remarkable fifth consecutive WorldSBK championship title in the 2019 season, the highly experienced Kawasaki Racing Team aims to continue its unprecedented levels of consistent success across the 2020 campaign.

Kawasaki’s official WorldSBK factory racing effort, directed from KHI’s race department in Akashi Japan, has its base of operations in Granollers, Catalonia under the management of the highly professional Provec Racing organisation.
 
Benefitting from a development programme of regularly updated parts and technical support direct from the factory, Provec staff face the perennial challenge of maintaining their stratospheric levels of track success. In addition there is the herculean logistical task of moving personnel, machinery and support facilities around the globe over a season that includes testing commitments plus 13 individual race meetings.
 
Continuing to benefit from the proven capabilities of the WorldSBK focused Ninja ZX-10RR street machine, which forms the base unit for on-track performance, KRT are proud to reflect on Kawasaki’s deep roots in World Superbike. The message is the same in 2020 as it ever was; Kawasaki uses a street machine from the same warehouse as Kawasaki dealers can draw from to form the base of their flagship WorldSBK racing machine. With many components and technologies crossing over directly from the street bike to the racing machine, the Ninja ZX-10RR is the definitive example of the true spirit of Superbike racing.
 
Ready to deliver on the faith shown in them as Kawasaki’s official WorldSBK squad, KRT – alongside multiple world champion Jonathan Rea and new signing Alex Lowes - have riders’, manufacturers’ and teams’ champion titles to retain. With all the essential ingredients in place, 2020 is set to be another exceptional year within the Kawasaki racing family.
