Lighter by one pound—that’s not much. But, for Kawasaki’s all new 2016 Ninja ZX-10R, one pound has made a significant and very noticeable difference.
Team Kawasaki SRC proved the worth of the new ZX-10R at one of the most challenging races of 2016 – the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the opening round of the 2016 FIM World Endurance Championship.
And the team of Gregory Leblanc, Matthieu Lagrive and Fabien Foret showed absolutely zero remorse; the three-rider team lead 680 laps of the Le Mans endurance race, finishing nine laps ahead of April Moto Motors Events (Suzuki GSX-R1000) and F.C.C. TSR Honda (CBR1000RR).
Race two at Motorland Aragon World Superbike Sunday was a history maker – not so much due to the results, but because it was the 700th World SBK (the first was April 3, 1988, at Donington Park in the UK). A replica of Saturday’s Aragon WSBK race one, perfect riding conditions greeted the 25-rider grid at the 3.1-mile circuit containing 17 miles.
Perfect racing conditions welcomed the 25-rider World Superbike grid for race one of round three at Motorland Aragon in Spain. All eyes were on the Kawasaki Racing Team duo of Jonathan Rea and Tom Sykes; heading into Aragon, Rea had three wins – a double at the Phillip Island season opener and race one in Thailand – and Sykes had the remaining win, race two in Thailand.
