“Get ready for Green domination”: Kawasaki launch World SBK 2016 bid

Feb 142016

Barcelona’s Montjuic Parc – home of the historic and ill-fated F1 track and the ’92 Olympic stadium – is one of the greenest spaces in the magnificent Catalan capital…and was turned an extra shade of emerald last Thursday as the Kawasaki Racing Team unveiled their livery for 2016, the new Ninja ZX-10R and of course two exceptional racers in the forms of Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes. Guests, team personnel, press and even Catalan government dignitaries were part of the audience and witnessed a presentation outlining the remarkable seven year existence of the Provec team from their roots in World Supersport to a swashbuckling two World SBK titles (and two runner-up positions) in just four years. The strong connection between the crew and their work developing the ZX-10R and Kawasaki with the KHI HQ in Japan was emphasised and much was made of the 2016 incarnation of the rapier-shaped model that has already carried Tom Sykes, in particular, to some emphatic lap-times in pre-season tests.
