Kawasaki have confirmed one of their two riders for the 2022 lineup for their official Factory team for World Superbike. The other rider is surrounded in speculation as Jonathan Rea is linked to a move to MotoGP.

KRT Manager, Guim Roda, had this to say about Alex's new deal: "We are so happy to have Alex and he is highly motivated to continue with the KRT project, with this two-year agreement we are convinced that we will now build on these firm foundations to create the strongest package with him, Marcel, his Crew Chief, the Ninja ZX-10RR and the entire KRT organisation.”

Alex Lowes talked about his new deal by adding β€œI am really happy to have signed once more with the Kawasaki Racing Team, the most successful team in the current era of WorldSBK, after a strange first year in the team last year due to the global situation and with such a short season it has been good to start this year at some different tracks and I am understanding the bike a lot more. It has also been slightly frustrating this year because I feel like we started strongly but the results are not quite where we would want them to be right now. We have a lot of potential and I am still in the top four of the championship, close to the top three, which is the target for this year. I will be working hard for the next few weeks to make that next step to be regularly challenging for the podium. Honestly, I feel like it is close, so with this team and all these guys around me - with the relationships we have been building - everything is in place now to push things forward. I am really thankful to stay in the team next year, and proud of the faith that Kawasaki has shown in me. In our job there is a lot more that goes on behind the scenes than the results that you see on the track so I am really happy about this new deal with KRT. A massive thanks to all the guys behind the project, to Guim and Biel Roda, Steve Guttridge and all the people at KHI in Japan for believing in me again.”

Alex has stood on the podium eight times while in green leathers after leaving Yamaha. One of his podiums was a race win. Hopefully Lowes can continue his success at Kawasaki in the future.
