The Superbike series prepares to restart its engines during a two-day test at the circuit of Jerez De La Frontera. A test that is keenly awaited by Kawasaki, which hopes to be on track with the its latest Ninja ZX-10R model, but that will also be attended by Yamaha and Honda.
Kawasaki awaits the new bike
As we’ve said, the main point of interest relates to the Akashi manufacturer, as it awaits the arrival of its new bike, at least for factory Provec team riders Jonathan Rea and Alex Lowes. Client teams Puccetti, Orelac and Pedercini will be fielding new riders, or rather Lucas Mahias, Isaac Vinales and Loris Cresson respectively.
The factory Yamaha team will also attend with riders Toprak Razgatlioglu and Andrea Locatelli, as will the manufacturer’s various satellite teams and the factory Honda team.
No BMW or Ducati
The various Ducati and BMW teams will not be in Spain, having decided not to participate. While the Borgo Panigale manufacturer confirmed its absence in advance, preferring to carry out private tests, the German manufacturer was expected to attend, but has now pulled out as a result of the new wave of Covid-19. BMW will field a new M1000RR and also a client team in the 2021 championship.
