Pourcel, who will become a full factory-supported rider for the 2007 season was invited to Japan to test the bike he will try to defend his MX2 title on next year.

The Kawasaki KX250F-SR rider was joined on the podium by factory competitor Yu Hirata, which also saw him finish second in the final Japanese Championship standings. Quality bikes for sale: Click here.

“Next season I will defend my MX2 World title again in the GPKR team to whom I owe so much to. I am very happy that Kawasaki could continue to help me achieve my dreams in the future and I hope that I can bring them more and more success over the next three years."

Kawasaki treated French rider to a celebratory banquet on his return to Japan.

The 18-year-old has now flown to California to begin his winter training for Supercross.
