Johnson: “The bike just needs little tweaks”

In International, News, Roads, Thundersport GB

ROAD racing star Gary Johnson says he is excited about this year’s Macau Grand Prix after an eleventh-hour link-up with Lee Hardy’s Kawasaki squad.

We caught up with the Isle of Man TT winner during the Thundersport GB finale at Donington, where he was spotted doing some last-minute testing aboard the Briggs Equipment ZX10R in a late switch of machinery.

Johnson was out in action in the GP1 races, but claimed he didn’t need to push on for a podium, instead opting to focus on setup.

“Lee already has a great package here,” he told UK Clubsport. “But I’m new to this Kawasaki, so the bike just needs little tweaks to suit what I need.”

“I wasn’t really looking for results [in GP1], Thundersport was our last chance to test before the bike went in a crate on Monday. If I was comfortable with the changes and the setup, I just pushed on a bit – but I didn’t need to go out there and race hard really, just find out what setup works for me.”

Johnson also dropped hints about new developments with the WK Bikes CFMoto Supertwin that UK Clubsport is planning to reveal in due course…
