Alex Lowes will continue with the Provec Racing team in WorldSBK 2025, as the team switches from Kawasaki to Bimota.

The Bimota switch will still see Kawasaki power inside the Provec garage, which has run Kawasaki's factory WorldSBK team for over a decade, while the Italian brand will design and build the chassis of what will be a new sports bike model.

On his Provec renewal, Alex Lowes said: "I believe this opportunity has come at the correct time. Along with Bimota, Kawasaki are putting huge effort into this new project. Utilising Kawasaki's nearly 40 years of Superbike racing knowledge and success and also my personal experience with different manufacturers I believe this gives us the best chance to start from the best possible position with the new bike. I have shown that I am still improving and still fast and competitive at the front of WorldSBK.

"A big thank you to KMC, Bimota and Provec Racing for the faith shown in me. I'm happy to continue to be part of our racing family! I'm enjoying my racing a lot and we still have a lot to focus on during 2024. We had a nice start to the season with a couple of race victories but now our focus is on Misano. It's a track I really enjoy, we had a test here recently and I felt strong on the bike let's work hard focus and see what results we can take this weekend."

Lowes' time with Kawasaki began in 2020, when he joined after being let go by Yamaha when it signed Toprak Razgatlioglu. Lowes won in his first round with Kawasaki at Phillip Island, and took two more wins at this year's Australian Round. Lowes currently sits fourth in the WorldSBK riders' standings, 30 points behind current leader Alvaro Bautista.
