FIRST LOOK: Kawasaki present 2024 WorldSBK livery - with more green!

An even greener look for the Kawasaki ZX-10RR this year


Kawasaki have shown off their 2024 WorldSBK livery.

The ZX-10RR will feature even more green than last year.

Alex Lowes and Axel Bassani will form Kawasaki's rider line-up as they enter their post-Jonathan Rea era.

Lowes said: “I really like the new colours for 2024, they are a little bit different. 

"Every other year there have been some small changes, but this is my favourite one yet. 

"I come into 2024 with a lot of optimism. In some ways the bike, the package and the team are the same, but I have some different personnel to work with. 

"We have some small upgrades and we have been working very hard in the winter, especially in our weak areas, making the bike easier to manage over a race distance. 

"I am really happy with the work we have done. Whether it is enough to challenge at the front every week, we will have to wait and see. 

"But I certainly feel that we have made a step forward from last year. I am excited to get going and head to Phillip Island for the final pre-season test and Round 1.”


Bassani added: “I am really happy to finally show to the world the new KRT livery for the 2024 season. 

"I think it is a really good design and I like it. For sure there is still a lot of green but some different colours. 

"It is also really good to finally see my factory bike in factory colours. It is always nice to have a new look each season. 

"I hope that people like the look of the bike and all the new team clothing. The green of Kawasaki is always special. 

"I think we can have a really good season together. I am looking forward to going to Australia soon.”

Team Manager Guim Roda added: “We have a very balanced project this year. 

"Lowes, a fast rider with incredible capacity for speed, is trying to extend his performance for 20 laps - right to the end of long races. 

"Axel, a young and talented rider, is learning how to extract the full potential of the Ninja ZX-10RR each time he goes out on track. 

"Races this season will need to be evaluated not only by finishing positions but by the distance between the first placed rider and the others, because it will be so tight. 

"The number of great riders on the grid is amazing. I’m sure this is, by far, the more competitive and exciting season in WorldSBK since we started out on our KRT project in 2012. 

"We are putting on a big show and hope all the racing fans, and especially the Ninja fans, will thoroughly enjoy it.”
