The 2019 Isle of Man Senior TT winner will take part in a full BSB campaign alongside his road racing commitments for the official Kawasaki Road Racing team. This includes the Isle of Man TT, North West 200 and Ulster Grand Prix, all of which return after being cancelled for the previous two years due to Covid-19.

The pale blue colour of the team’s old identity is gone and has been replaced with a bolder, brighter shade to match the team’s rebranding. The enhanced flashes of green showcase their relationship with Kawasaki, whilst the inclusion of the Thai and Isle of Man flags reflects the heritage of team owners Clarissa Beadman and Sommai Nantakoon.

“Following a complete rebrand for the team, we wanted a new look for our ZX-10RR and I’m delighted to reveal our 2022 British Superbike livery,” Team Manager, Jonny Bagnall said. “This is the bike we will run at all BSB meetings this year and we will be unveiling our roads machine at a later date.

“We have chosen to go for quite a dramatic change in style and colours. Although we have stuck with blue, green and white, we’ve gone for a darker and brighter blue this year, moving away from our traditional old shade and have retained the green to reflect our involvement with Kawasaki.”

The team is expected to reveal its road racing livery, which it will run in all international road races this summer including the Isle of Man TT, North West 200 and Ulster GP, in the coming months.
