15 Februari 2019 Phillip Island KRT Superbike unveil

The Kawasaki Racing Team for 2019 is unveiled this weekend at the Phillip Island track which plays host to the opening round of the World Superbike Championship.

With an almost total domination from KRT rider, Jonathan Rea, in recent years both in qualifying and races, 2019 sees the four time consecutive world champion joined in the pit box and on the grid by Leon Haslam.

Current British Superbike champion, Haslam, has a rich World Superbike heritage and it will be fascinating to see the two “Kawasaki warriors” taking the fight to the opposition across thirteen rounds of a highly competitive season.

Unveiling the factory Ninja ZX-10RR machines in their racing livery after a series of Winter tests, the team launch will witness a renewed approach from the entire KRT effort encompassing riders, staff and the racing support offered by the Akashi factory race department.

Sponsors and team partners also play a vital part in making the team what it is and their role will also be celebrated as part of the team launch.

The presentation will be live streamed live at http://kawasakiracingteamworldsbk.com on Saturday 16 February at 10-00 CET and 09-00 GMT.
