Portland, Ore. (January 9, 2007) – No team can exist without the help of its sponsors, and Team MotoSport Kawasaki is proud to announce the group of companies onboard with the team for 2007. 

“MotoSport is committed to retailing quality products to our consumers, and we have the same commitment when it comes to the companies that sponsor our team,” said Bill Butcher, CEO, MotoSport, Inc. “We partner with the top brands in the industry, and are proud of the support we’re receiving from our sponsors in 2007.”

Kawasaki – with its championship-winning heritage in the Lites class – will outfit the team with 2007 KX™250F four-strokes in both Supercross and motocross. Team MotoSport Kawasaki will be running MSR gear – the NXT Series green gear – in keeping with the Kawasaki green motorcycles the team will be riding.  MDK is also onboard again this year, and though they run a separate Supercross race team, they are still a strong supporter of Team MotoSport Kawasaki.

Renthal, a leader in the motocross industry, will be supporting the Lites team with their world-renowned products, and Troy Lee Designs is the team’s new helmet sponsor.  While Team MotoSport Kawasaki’s new SE2 helmets will be production-based, there will be design highlights and enhancements from Troy’s paint department throughout the season. 

Spy Optics will be keeping the team outfitted in protective eyewear throughout the season, and Gaerne boots will provide optimum protection and style for the riders. ASV clutch levers and Acerbis will help keep the bikes and riders performing at their best.

Pro Circuit will be supporting Team MotoSport Kawasaki with chassis and suspension, development and service. They have been instrumental in getting the bikes set up for each rider’s needs. The team had great success with Pro Circuit engines in 2006 – not a single DNF all year – and look to have the same success in 2007.

Team MotoSport Kawasaki would like to thank all of its sponsors for 2007 –, Kawasaki, MSR, MDK, Renthal America, Troy Lee Designs, Spy Optics, ASV, Gaerne, Acerbis, Pro Circuit, Dunlop, Factory Effex, Hinson Racing, Light Speed, Mechanix Wear,  Pivot Works, Twin Air and VP Racing Fuels.
