Both Fuchs Silkolene and Kawasaki Motors UK have already enjoyed a history of shared success on the track with the Silkolene sponsored JG Speedfit Kawasaki team taking the British Superbike Championship title this year, ensuring that the partnership has taken off to a winning start.
The alliance will be elevated moving into 2019 with a commercial element that will see Fuchs Silkolene expand their presence in Kawasaki dealerships nationwide, as well as having a significant involvement with Kawasaki’s Team Green racing program.
Joost Van Genderen, Head of Motorcycle Division for Fuchs Silkolene said, "Silkolene already enjoys a great history with the Kawasaki brand. We have been official lubricant partners with many Kawasaki race teams over the years including MotoGP, WorldSBK and BSB. Most recently we worked closely with the Bournemouth Kawasaki JG Speedfit team and the newly crowned BSB champion Leon Haslam, running on our premium range of high performance engine oils to secure the title.”
“We plan to work closely with the great team at KMUK, to deliver the very best lubricant solutions and product range available to their dealer network and their customers, offering the best performance, protection and maintenance for their motorcycles.”
Craig Watson, Sales and Marketing Manager for Kawasaki Motors UK said, "We are absolutely delighted to be taking our already successful partnership with Fuchs Silkolene to yet another promising level. Fuchs Silkolene products have time and time again proven to be of unsurpassable quality and reliability, which are characteristics that are shared with Kawasaki products, therefore we believe that our collaboration can only result in ultimate success.”
Kawasaki Motors UK Senior Racing Coordinator, Ross Burridge anticipates the partnership to be of a huge benefit to Kawasaki UK racing efforts, saying, "Silkolene have had a huge presence in racing for many years, so the opportunity to move into the 2019 racing season as official partners is an exciting one. The high quality oil and associated products they produce are of a huge benefit to race teams across a variety of disciplines. From youth motocross all the way through to our British Superbike team, our riders will get to reap the rewards of knowing their race tuned engine is lubricated with the best."
