“To be part of such a professional team, and to see the manufacturer itself and Kawasaki Australia putting on such a massive show, is fantastic. They are really getting behind it. I just want to get going now,” said Leon Haslam at the event. Jonathan Rea cited, “KRT always push the boat out when it comes to launching the new colors and it is the first time you see your final bike in the flesh. Everything is real and now we turn the page to 2019… It is nice to do the launch here in Australia, and so close to the first race weekend”.

Guim Roda, who is the KRT Team Manager said during the event that the team is well equipped with a better machine and amazing riders, and we are going to take advantage of that during the race. Shigemi Tanaka, the Managing Director of Kawasaki Motors Australia, told that today’s theme is Ganbarou, that is, we will face our challenges with a smile and try harder. While we encountered a few troubles last year, we still managed to clinch the title all due to our dedication and some amazing performances by our rider Jonathan Rea. “We will compete and, whatever the circumstances, we will try our best,” added Tanaka.
