Robert Walker went on to say “At conception, the Kawasaki Insurance FX300 Ninja Cup idea was to create a production class that opened the path for rider growth through the racing ranks. So, to follow this idea, this year Kawasaki are lifting the bar by rewarding the Kawasaki Insurance FX300 Ninja Cup overall championship winner with the ultimate first prize; a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R with RRP of $22,000.
