British Superbike Championship front runners GBmoto Racing will be undertaking a Kawasaki backed campaign on the prestigious ‘road’ circuits in 2015, with Isle of Man TT winner Gary Johnson. Enjoying significant Kawasaki support, the team are building Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R race bikes in Superbike and Superstock specification to attack the North West 200, Isle of Man TT and Ulster Grand Prix events.
Following their debut season as an officially supported Kawasaki team in the MCE British Superbike Championship in 2014, GBmoto are further strengthening their relationship with the Akashi based manufacturer by supporting their Road Racing programme.

The team will undertake a full testing programme supported with Japanese technical personnel.
