Kawasaki Withdraws from Canadian Superbike Championship

Seven-time Canadian Superbike Champion Jordan Szoke is once again out of a job, as Canadian Kawasaki Motors today announced its withdrawal of official participation in the Canadian Superbike Series. Szoke was runner-up in this year’s championship, riding for the Canadian Kawasaki backed Competition Systems team. The severe market downturn affecting the motorcycle industry coupled with lack of full support for the series from all manufacturers has forced Canadian Kawasaki to re-evaluate its future racing investment, says the announcement. 

“Our success in the sport speaks for itself, but there comes a time when even our strong desire to win is not enough,” said Canadian Kawasaki Motors’ Jeff Comello.

Canadian Kawasaki Motors says though that it will ensure that all Kawasaki riders are able to participate in the series with the homologation of current Kawasaki models. That’s assuming there will still be a series to participate in next year. With real manufacturer support coming now only from BMW, the future of Canadian Superbike is seriously in question.
