Guim Roda, Kawasaki’s World Su­per­bike Team Man­ager, has talked about the bike, say­ing: “The con­cept is the same as the cur­rent mo­tor­cy­cle, but there are some changes to make it much more com­pet­i­tive. So we are go­ing the same way as Aprilia, Du­cati and BMW as they have al­ready brought a new bike to the cham­pi­onship for this year.

“Un­til last year the tech­ni­cal reg­u­la­tions al­lowed more free­dom. We could de­velop the race bike much more. But now we are lim­ited more by the changes that we make from the ba­sic bike.

“That means that the base bike has to be bet­ter, which is much more com­pli­cated to achieve. With a good base we can make the race ma­chine bet­ter.

“We are talk­ing about a very sporty su­per­bike with over 200bhp, with po­ten­tial that we can ex­ploit to 100%. Those who use this mo­tor­cy­cle in the world of mo­tor rac­ing will find the new bike much more com­pet­i­tive. It is a big step for­ward.”
