2021 Club Challenge Winners

We love seeing your Challenge photos throughout the year, we get to know the regular contributors and enjoy seeing new faces too. If you're not familiar with the Club Challenge, you'll soon have your chance to join in! We usually announce the Challenge locations in February so keep an eye out in the next Friday News updates coming soon. 

How does it work? We select a number of locations throughout the UK (with the help of our members, of course) and allocate points to each one. You visit the location, snap your Challenge selfie and submit the photo to us to be added to the leaderboard. You can also gain points for attending events and visiting Kawasaki dealerships. 

The 2021 Club Challenge came to a close in December last year and we're pleased to say that we have allocated the prizes to the well deserving winners so you're able to view the final leaderboard and gallery. The winners have been notified by email. 




STAUFF Fluid Power Kawasaki sign Joe Francis for Superstock 1000 attack

The GR Motosport-run STAUFF Fluid Power Kawasaki team has made the exciting move to bring former BSB star Joe Francis into the Pirelli National Superstock Championship for 2022. Joe will campaign the entire season aboard the Ninja ZX-10RR machine.  

A successful 2021 season saw the STAUFF Fluid Power Kawasaki team secure race wins and podiums in the maiden year of the new Ninja ZX-10RR. Now with a year under their belts, the team are looking to build on this performance in 2022 and challenge for the National Superstock Championship title. 

To do this, they have signed former Bennetts British Superbike Championship star Joe Francis. The Chester-based rider previously rode for the GR Motosport squad in 2013, securing the British Motostar title in the process, so the duo will be looking to replicate that winning form this year. 

Joe Francis: “I'm really looking forward to this year and a new challenge in the Superstock class. It is something I am excited about; my goal is to challenge for the championship title, and I am really motivated for the season ahead. It is nice to be back with Brent and the crew, working with the same team members I had back in 2013 when we won a championship together, and now we want to make it two. I am confident that with the programme and team around me that we can make it happen. I can't wait to get going in a new class and I am thankful to Brent and all of my sponsors who have put me in this position for the 2022 season.” 

Ross Burridge, Head of Marketing & Racing Department at Kawasaki UK: “Having worked with Brent and his professional outfit for a number of seasons now and seeing how the team have continued to develop across a multitude of classes, we are excited to see what they and Joe can achieve in 2022. It's always a tough class, but it's an important one for every Manufacturer, so we wish them the best of luck for the season ahead.”

WIN A 2022 KAWASAKI Z650RS WITH MOTORCYCLE LIVE

Kawasaki will start a Retrovolution in 2022 with the introduction of the new Z650RS. Augmenting its already hugely popular retro sport line, the Z650RS will open the mid-capacity class to a wide range of riders. Recognised as being at the forefront of the rapidly expanding retro sport scene, Kawasaki has the unique advantage of close to fifty years of Z heritage and this has been brought to bear on the design of the new 2022 machine. Specification is one thing but the styling of the Z650RS is a whole new ball game. Evoking myriad memories of the Z650-B1, the paint and pinstripes are a faithful reproduction of the green version of the earlier machine while the iconic “duck tail” cowling behind the seat and faithfully crafted side panels also play homage to the 1977 machine. Even the seat and its stitching pattern reveal a familiar fastidious attention to detail by Kawasaki stylists.

In order to enter the competition to be the proud owner of this fantastic Z650RS, please answer the questions below and submit your information.

The Z650RS pays homage to the Z650-B1 - what year was the Z650-B1 launched?*

  • 1980
  • 1977
  • 1975

Entries must be received by no later than 4.00pm on 10th February 2022.
