Jonathan Rea is like finding his ‘life partner’ at the superbike world championship. He is so powerful and synergizes with the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10RR character. But unfortunately the greatness of the two match select racing packages has not been proven in the MotoGP premiere class. Rea says: If Kawasaki returns to MotoGP, Jonathan Rea is ready to become the first volunteer to launch the prototype Ninja ZX-RR in MotoGP!
If one day Kawasaki decided to return to the MotoGP paddock, Jonathan Rea admitted that he would be the first volunteer to ride one of Akashi’s prototype motorbikes. This was revealed by WSBK’s 5-time unbroken world champion in a recent interview with Corriere dello Sport media:
“Never say impossible.
Nothing is impossible, anything can happen.
At this time in my career, I prefer to continue at Superbike, but if Kawasaki decides to focus on the MotoGP project, yes … I will participate, for now Marquez and I only have one thing in common, besides the world title … I also support FC Barcelona ”
Is there a possibility that Rea will be able to compete with Kawasaki MotoGP bikes? … There is a potential, but he also has to bring his superbike team. Because the level of MotoGP competition is very high. Teamwork between mechanics and racers is very important. Especially the strategy in the selection of tires.
Superbike class indeed cannot be equated with MotoGP. But teams like Ducati actually carry a positive element in the WSBK championship for the development of motor racing in MotoGP and vice versa.
