Kawasaki Racing Team Launched In Barcelona

Posted:

KHI‰Ûªs official 2016 FIM Superbike World Championship entry, Kawasaki Racing Team, unveiled its machinery and full package of partners and sponsors to a waiting world at the prestigious Esf̬ric facility in Barcelona yesterday, 11 February.

Striking colours and graphics on the all-new 2016 Ninja ZX-10R were unveiled by KRT riders Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes, with Motocard, Elf Total and Monster Energy logos on prominent display on the sides of the new machine.

The event included a retrospective of the recent challenges and successes that have shaped the double championship winning team in the 2015 season, as well as presenting the awesome new Ninja ZX-10R in its final WorldSBK form.

A busy evening included interviews with riders Jonathan Rea (champion in 2015) and Tom Sykes (champion in 2013), videos featuring key moments in Kawasaki‰Ûªs racing history and speeches from the assembled dignitaries.

The launch was attended by all forms of media representatives and was also shown as a live webcast for those who could not be in attendance in person.

Thursday evening‰Ûªs event attracted a lot of well-timed public and media attention for the reigning Riders and Manufacturers‰Ûª champions, given that the season itself gets underway shortly at Phillip Island in Australia, between 26 and 28 February.

Mr Shigemi Tanaka, Kawasaki Motors Europe director, stated: ‰ÛÏIt is an honour to be with KRT once more and joining the chance to share the optimism that only a team launch can create. Here in the home of KRT we have a chance tonight to reflect on past glories and look ahead in anticipation of strong results in the coming season.

"At KME we are proud of the strong connection we have with KRT and the association between us is apparent on many levels. Many of you know that the new Ninja ZX-10R was developed in partnership with KRT and the factory in Akashi, Japan. There will also be some of you who are aware that our KRT riders and both crew chiefs, plus the technicians, attended the recent launch of our new Ninja at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia.

"The theme of that launch was ‰Û÷Get Closer‰Ûª and today I hope that you have a chance to get closer to KRT and our valued riders, Tom Sykes and Jonathan Rea, who between them they have achieved two world title in the past three years, relying on the support of the whole KRT team valued sponsors and of course the Kawasaki family.‰Û
