    Apparently Kawasaki USA has posted a 2 million contingency program for 2015-16 zx10,zx6, ninja 650 and ninja 300 in the US including organizations such as WERA and MotoAmerica. Is there such a plan (even small) for Kawasaki to implement something in Canada? Might be worth inquiring from our Kawi based people.

    We had around $3000 in contingency paid out last year. Not a fortune, but it's something.

    The day the press release was issued I had contacted Canadian Kawasaki Motors to see if we were to expect a similar interest in roadracing. Word is to expect CKM to be more involved in approximately two years.
