Britain’s Alex Lowes will make his debut for the all-conquering Kawasaki WorldSBK team at this week’s Aragon test but says he will not be trying to set the world on fire.

Lowes will make the transition from the Yamaha R1 to the ZX-10RR and is aware the bike will need to be ridden completely differently, so will spend his opening days getting used to it and a new crew.

“I am looking forward to getting my first run out on the ZX-10RR and starting my new relationship with the team,” Lowes told bikeportnews.com this morning.

“My targets are getting to know how all the crew work and work hard with my crew chief Marcel so he knows what I need from the bike in terms of my feeling.

“It’s going to be about taking time to understand the best way to ride the Kawasaki after a lot of years with the R1. I am relaxed and really excited about the new challenge, it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
