"Perhaps, the past season wasn't for me outstanding, there is nothing to hide here: I have lost motivation after two years of attempts to make something with this motorcycle, - Tom Sykes after the presentation has told. - I felt very restrictedly all this time because I knew: new Kawasaki has been created not for me, not for my needs... "

I have won a title in 2013, we have made Ninja such what he is today, and it is a merit of our team, - British accented. - The greatest disappointment for me was to miss a title in 2014 - it was unexpected for many, we didn't expect that eventually everything so will end. Everything that occurred then, disturbed me, but I knew that I can do nothing with it. At the same time, the plant was ready to continue work. I - am not present! I store an absolute record of Superpole, so I can be the fastest. But in races there is today no opportunity to struggle with Ray even on the same motorcycle. Because the motorcycle has been created UNDER IT, not under me. One bike - different pilots. I had no opportunity to reconstruct Ninja under itself two years in a row. I felt left to the mercy of fate. When all plant works for one person, nearby it is senseless to rest to stand even. I wish to Leon [to Hezlam, the new workmate of Ray in 2019] good luck in this field! "

I know that they can be trusted. I am sure that I can count on them. Yes, it is new S 1000 RR, we will test it literally the other day. But if they are really ready to follow my wishes, it will be the best bike in the championship - I will take care of it! I want to win races
