FS-3 Kawasaki unveil retro-inspired livery for 2022 BSB season

Rory Skinner and Lee Jackson will have a brand new livery for the 2022 BSB season after FS-3 Kawasaki officially unveiled a retro-inspired colour scheme. 

Having taken inspiration from six-time WorldSBK champion Jonathan Rea, who used the same colour scheme during a one-off round in San Juan last season, the British Superbike team have now decided to compete with the same ZX-7RR-inspired colours for the entire 2022 season. 

The hugely popular design was an especially big hit across the UK, which has resulted in an option to upgrade to the same matching livery for customers who buy a new ZX-10R or ZX-10RR from an authorised Kawasaki dealer. 

FS-3 Kawasaki are one of the few teams to have kept the same rider line-up for the upcoming season as impressive 2021 rookie Skinner returns alongside BSB veteran Jackson. 

Testing for both riders will begin next month during the first of three official pre-season tests. The first of those takes place at Oulton Park (March 26-27), before Donington Park (March 31) and Silverstone (April 6-7) follow suit. 

The three tests will then be followed by the official season opener at Silverstone on April 15-17.  

Speaking about the team’s new colours for 2022, Ross Burridge, Head of Marketing & Racing Department at Kawasaki UK, said: "Having witnessed the incredibly positive feedback from racing fans across the globe after seeing Jonathan’s [Rea] machine in Argentina, and then on our standard road bike at Motorcycle Live on the Kawasaki stand, we knew we had to see it on track in the UK this year. 

"The guys at FS-3 Racing also fell in love with the design and are excited to see Lee and Rory debut the new look on track at round one in April later this year."

The next scheduled bike launch for Kawasaki will be their official WorldSBK team which takes place on March 23.
