Kawasaki Racing Team goes Back to the Future
Celebrating 125 years of the founding of the Kawasaki company – as well as highlighting the recent global adoption of the River Mark as an identity symbol and the founding of a new company concentrating even more on motorcycles – the Kawasaki Racing team riders, Jonathan Rea and Alex Lowes competed in one of the Argentinian round races on specially liveried Ninja ZX-10RR machines.
Abandoning their using colour schemes with the generous permission of all team sponsors, each rider chose the livery of an iconic machine from Kawasaki’s past and these designs were transferred to their Ninja ZX-10RR race machines along with River Mark logos. The riders also wore special leathers and even heritage style sunglasses were provided by a team eyewear sponsor.
For Jonathan, the decision was easy, an adapted version of the distinctive look and feel of the iconic ZXR750-H model from the early 90’s resplendent in white, blue and green. And for Alex it simply had to be a modern interpretation of the livery of the game-changing GPz900R launched in 1984 which, in the USA, was the first machine to carry the Ninja name.
Some 125 Years ago Kawasaki embarked on an adventure. Since then, Kawasaki has been improving people’s lives worldwide delivering exciting products and engineering masterpieces that bring joy and create a sense of wonder.
Now Kawasaki Motors Ltd – a new company concentrating even more on motorcycles – has been launched: This new company focuses on traditional Kawasaki River Mark logo as a worldwide symbol of quality together with the tagline “Let the Good Times Roll”.
Why? Because the ultimate mission is to deliver the greatest range of Powersports products on the planet. Street motorcycle, off-road two and four-wheeler or JetSki personal watercraft, Kawasaki has a single minded passion – to be the best.
