“This new program builds on the success last year of our four-race-weekend American SuperBike project, during which rider Eric Bostrom and crew chief Richard Stanboli proved that a stock motorcycle built with over-the-counter parts can be competitive at the national level,” said Cycle World managing editor Matthew Miles. “We now want to explore what it will take to make Kawasaki’s new ZX-10R competitive on the racetrack.”
