Kawasaki - WSBK 2011 Preview

While Kawasaki's fortunes in Superbikes has waned in recent years, its Supersport operation has gone from strength-to-strength under Pere Riba and the Provec team.

Although halo rider Lascorz has been promoted, a formidable replacement comes in the form of Broc Parkes, who proved towards the end of 2010 that he has unfinished business at Supersport level.

He is joined by David Salom, who shrugged off years of obscurity on the international stage to emerge a competitive addition to Triumph's Supersport effort last year. Both he and Parkes have been frequent visitors to the top of the timesheets during testing, suggesting it could be the line-up that will enable Kawasaki to topple hot favourites this year.

In all, four examples of the ZX-6R will be on the grid in 2011, with Lorenzini expanding to two entries with experienced peddlers Vittorio Iannuzzo and Massimo Roccoli.
