"This is a great team that has been put together and I think both me and Howie want to reward them by doing a good job. I am excited, but to be honest a Kawasaki is probably the only bike I have never raced!
“I think seeing how well it performed last year makes us all feel so motivated to put in the hard work and hopefully it will pay off with results. After the season last year in Superbike I feel like I have a good idea of what to expect and I think me and Howie will push each other all the way."
MH Kawasaki's announcement means there will be at least five Kawasaki affiliated teams competing in BSB this year, alongside Rapid Solicitors, Quattro Plant, PR and Halsall.
