SBK, Test Misano: Rea destroys Kawasaki, team thanks him

The rider challenges the limits of the Romagna track and pays the consequences by falling, but the team appreciated the Cannibal's performance with irony


They turned on the wick at Misano for the first test day reserved for the Superbike. Besides Ducati, Kawasaki, with Johnny Rea and Alex Lowes, was also in action on the Riviera track.  At the moment, the Cannibal is called to chase a super Scott Redding, who set the pace on the Panigale V4.

Johnny obviously worked on the innovations brought to the track by the team and on the sensations with the new asphalt. Unfortunately for him, he also had an unscheduled event occur when he ended up falling in the afternoon, throwing the bike onto the gravel. The ZX-10RR is back in the garage, and now it's up to the mechanics to get their hands on it: “To infinity and beyond," is  what his team commented through an ironic tweet. "Thanks for racing so fast, Jonathan Rea. We'll repair the bike as soon as possible to conquer new limits!"
