Romain Febvre’s commitment and strong results with the Kawasaki Racing Team are set for continued success in 2024.

Romain Febvre will remain with the Kawasaki Racing Team MXGP project next season for the fifth consecutive year.

“I’m delighted to continue with Kawasaki; that was of course my first choice!” the Frenchman stated. “We worked hard last winter to develop the brand-new KX450-SR from the KX450 production machine and we have shown with all these podiums how competitive the bike is. I want to keep that package for next season. I feel so comfortable on the bike and we have already won six GPs together. I know the bike and the team members; we have a great connection together and to stay on the same bike with the same people is for sure the best way to prepare for another title assault next year.”

31-year-old Febvre has been selected for the 2023 French MXoN team.

Since he joined the team four years ago Febvre has consistently delivered success, including a world championship silver medal in 2021, and is currently in outstanding form with six Grand Prix victories and one further podium from the most recent seven rounds of the world’s premier off-road series, the FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship.

The 31-year-old is currently second in the series points standings despite an unfortunate start collision during Qualifying for the Spanish GP in May which prevented him from contesting that round of the series.

Throughout the season the Frenchman and his 2023 KX450-SR have gelled into a formidable partnership thanks to the hard work and collaboration of rider and the staff of Kawasaki Racing Team MXGP in cooperation with engineers and staff in Japan at KMC. With the confirmation of Febvre for the coming season, all parties now have an even stronger base to prepare during the coming winter test period for another assault on the FIM MXGP Motocross World Championship.

Febvre already has six Grand Prix victories in the 2023 season and sits in second place in the MXGP standings.

Antti Pyrhonen, KRT Manager, added, “It’s great news to continue working with Romain; it was clear from both sides that we wanted to continue this successful cooperation. We are very happy with Romain’s performances and results, as well as his approach towards the team and racing. He always gives 100% effort at every training and testing session. At every race he represents exactly the values that we all love and share! From Romain’s side it’s very obvious that he is gelling with the bike, and with the team. We have already reached a very high level but we always keep our feet on the ground; we know that no year will be easy as we’re racing at the highest level of motocross so we’ll never stop working hard and, as always, need to be ready for any challenge.”
