Tony the tiger Meiring has re-signed with team ghreen too, and has ridden the new 600 and 636's that he'll ride in SuperSport ans SuperStock respectivley...
“That new 600 is going to be such a hit for Kawasaki. It’s a race-built bike. It’s very comfortable to ride, but it will also be a great bike to race. When I rode it a few weeks ago, I was able to light up the rear tire. For a stock 600, the power and handling were just incredible. And that new 636 was impressive too. It will certainly help me when I race it in the Superstock class next year”
Also is there a 10r to be unveiled in mid-season?
"I’m comfortable here, have had good results with them, my crew is really good, and there are some exciting Kawasaki machines coming in the near future.”
Kawasaki officials have also hinted that they will introduce a new ZX-10R in mid-2003
In addition, Eric retains a strong connection to the Kawasaki motoGP project, as he will be testing the machine for Kawasaki before the year is out and again next season. This was a final component that convinced Eric to stay with Kawasaki.
