Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. will not participate in the AMA Pro Racing road racing series in 2010, the company announced in a press release.
“While we’ve always considered road racing an integral part of our sport bike development process, the realities of the current economic situation dictate the temporary suspension of our U.S. road racing activities,” Bruce Stjernstrom, the company’s marketing director, said in the press release.
Kawasaki’s history of successful road racing includes 20 AMA series championships.
“We expect to see eventual improvements in the general economic condition and Kawasaki will re-evaluate its road-racing position as we monitor those issues,” said Stjernstrom.
