World Superbike: Jonathan Rea and Kawasaki to part ways after '23

Jonathan Rea, after nine seasons with Kawasaki, will be leaving the team with a year remaining on his contract. Rea has achieved great success during his time with Kawasaki, securing six consecutive World Superbike Championships, 104 wins, and 214 podium finishes. However, Kawasaki’s performance in recent years has declined compared to their competitors Ducati and Yamaha. Rea has had a challenging 2023 season, with only one win and currently sitting third in the championship standings. Rea has expressed gratitude to Kawasaki and is determined to finish the season strongly. He is expected to join Yamaha next year and partner with Andrea Locatelli, creating an opportunity for Kawasaki to fill his seat alongside Alex Lowes. Kawasaki team manager Guim Roda has praised Rea’s accomplishments and is focused on finishing the season well.
