Jordi Torres moves from the frying pan into the fire for WorldSBK 2019 when he switches from MV Agusta to Pedercini Kawasaki.
Torres, who ended his MV contract early to substitute for Tito Rabat in MotoGP, will have a decent Kawasaki ZX-10RR for the new season as all the parts available to Jonathan Rea are also available to satellite team – but it all depends if they can afford them.
“I’m happy to have found a historical Team of WorldSBK that runs with a winning bike. Kawasaki is the right bike for the WorldSBK Championship and I cannot wait to try it to express everything that this bike can give on the track,” said Torres.
“I believe that I and the Team will take away from us a lot of satisfactions. A special thanks to Lucio Pedercini for giving me this opportunity. I trust the team and I know that it has the experience to give me the weapons to fight and express my potential. It is a pride for me to be part of Team Pedercini and a I have a great desire to start working.”
