Kawasaki presented its 2015 World Superbike team, revealing the livery on the Ninja ZX-10R racebike with former champion Tom Sykes and new teammate Jonathan Rea.
The 2015 livery isn’t much different from the 2014 version. Monster Energy Drink is now the most prominent team sponsor along with lubricant company Elf and motorcycle gear distributor Motocard.
The team will seek to improve on last season where Sykes finished second to Sylvain Guintoli by a mere six points despite leading all riders with eight wins. Kawasaki was also runner-up to manufacturers champion Aprilia.
Sykes figures to be another top contender for 2015 while former longtime Honda rider Rea joins the team finishing a personal best of third overall with 334 points and tying a personal career best of four wins.
The 2015 WSBK season kicks off Feb. 22 at Australia’s Phillip Island circuit.
