Kawasaki South Africa returns to the South African National Cross Country Motorcycle Championship in 2021 following a lengthy sabbatical. Pepson Plastics Kawasaki Motul Racing will enter a full nine-machine team in this year’s championship.
The team will compete across the various SA National Cross Country classes with promising pair Dartagnan Lobjoit and Craig Alcock racing in the open class OR1 on the all-new KX450XC. The experienced Taki Bogiages and Kyle MacKenzie will be the men in green in competitive OR3 aboard two KX250XCs, while Lee Thompson is our man in the Senior class. I will represent the team in Masters. A competitive Junior line-up sees Jake Pretorius and Clayton Human in 85cc and Dylan Human in the 65cc class."
The reborn Green Team will be racing Kawasaki’s brand new built for cross country 2021 KX250XC and KX450XCs based on its ’21 KX motocross machines. Both benefit specific XC tuned electric start engines with MotoGP derived finger follower valve technology and plug-and-play engine mapping for precision tuning via the KX FI Calibration kit.
Five-speed XC models get cross-country gearing for their close-ratio gearbox, a light and direct feel hydraulic clutch and traction control. XC-tuned Showa suspension is cross country ready, as are larger diameter brakes and optimised wheels with enduro-type tyres. The XCs carry over the narrow KX frame with adjustable handlebar and foot peg positions, minimalistic bodywork and add a side stand and skid plates.
