Jonathan Rea has thrown his leg over a Kawasaki Superbike for the first time as post-season testing got underway in Motorland Aragon.

The Ulsterman, who has competed with Honda ever since he made his WSBK debut at the end of 2008, was confirmed with Kawasaki shortly after the 2014 season concluded.

The first time he has tested with another manufacturer, Rea will spend two days in Spain getting acquainted with the ZX-10R alongside new team-mate Tom Sykes.
