KAWASAKI RACING TEAM

After winning three FIM Superbike World Championship Riders’ titles in recent times, firstly with Tom Sykes in 2013 and then with Jonathan Rea in 2015 and 2016, the official Kawasaki Racing Team has provided the Japanese manufacturer with unrivalled contemporary success.

Kawasaki has also won the Manufacturers’ Trophy for the past two seasons, thanks to the race-winning efforts and combined podium prowess of official KRT pairing Rea and Sykes.

The KRT WorldSBK presence is an amalgam of KHI engineering development and technical parts from Japan, while their committed partners Provec carry out the hands-on operation at the team’s Spanish Catalan base near Barcelona. Provec delivers the logistics, transport, race and testing duties, under the supervision of - and in co-operation with - Kawasaki Motors Europe in the Netherlands.

Provec started out as a privateer team in the FIM Supersport World Championship, moving on to become the official Kawasaki WSS effort before being announced as the direct Kawasaki Racing Team entry in WorldSBK racing at the start of the 2012 season.

Constant improvements to the already impressive Ninja ZX-10R production machine turned it from competitive WorldSBK platform to a championship-winning package. Despite an accident that ended the career of long time Provec rider and friend to all Joan Lascorz, the team has gone from strength to strength.
