SBK, Jerez: New 2021 Kawasaki engine makes its track debut with Rea and Lowes

VIDEO - The 'old' shapes of the ZX-10RR are not deceptive because in the Spanish tests Johnny and Alex will be able to try the new Japanese 4-cylinder

There was a lot of anticipation, as were the predictions on which bike Kawasaki would take to the Jerez de la Frontera tests. Yesterday we told you about the secrecy in the garage of the 6-times world champion Jonathan Rea, and no one wanted to comment on the possible innovations that would be on the track today but the rumour that was circulating was that we would have seen a 2020/2021 hybrid bike

And so it was seen that this morning, when the Kawasaki garage door opened, there didn't seem to be any major updates on the faired bikes. The biggest step forward, however, the Japanese manufacturer only had to make on the engine and Kawasaki sources here at Jerez confirmed that the one mounted today on Rea and Lowes' bikes is new and under development.

The Japanese technicians want to understand where they can still work to improve acceleration and top speed without compromising the excellent chassis. In these two days, however, the addition of some other new features, always in disguise, cannot be ruled out, since the presentation of the new ZX-10 RR will be on 23 November.
