Yoshimura Japan has set our sights on the EWC title and we are now targeting Yoshimura SERT Motul to be the 2021 series champion.

A part of our development and for having tests through actual race event, we entry All Japan Championship 1st Round in Motegi and Kazuki Watanabe is racing as a wildcard.

It is a complicated situation and he missed the All Japan pre-season test in Motegi due to self-isolate period after traveling to France for private test at Bugatti Circuit in Le Mans. However we are sure he will show his performance fully in the race weekend.

I am currently in France and not possible to work with my guys this time, but still then I am excited to show our latest Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000R and strong ride Kazuki makes in front of our local fans.
I miss these loyal fans and hope to see them when we race in Japan at the final round of EWC in Suzuka this year!

I am glad our local championship starts as scheduled in these difficult times due to COVID-19 and I am thrilled to race in JSB1000 as a wildcard.
I have been developing Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000R for EWC project and I enjoy my priority to gain confidence and to make improvements for whole team.
We have just done the test in Bugatti Circuit and team director, Yohei Kato is still in France. It is really unusual to race with his absence but I am sure he will be following all the sessions.
I am very much looking forward to race in Motegi and hope to bring good news to fans in Japan as well as to my team in France.
