Takahashi to step in for Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team

Written by  Sep 03, 2017

As the Superbike World Championship heads into the final four rounds of the season, it has been announced that Red Bull Honda World Superbike Team are calling on the talents of Takumi Takahashi for two of the final four rounds. 

The Japanese rider will be taking Nicky Hayden's bike, who tragically lost his life back in May.

Takahashi has a strong relationship with Honda, as their test rider as well a three time Suzuka 8-Hour winner with the manufacturer.

Proud to have been asked to race for them on the world stage, the 27 year old is keen to get out in front of the WorldSBK paddock and fans. 

"I’m honoured," begins Takahashi. "As a rider who has continuously fought to race on the world stage, that my achievements and experience have been recognised, and I have been given the opportunity to race in the World Superbike Championship."

"I’ll use all of the experience I’ve gained racing the CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 in the All-Japan championship to aim high and contribute to the team."

"I’d like to ride my best in front of the world’s Superbike fans, so I hope they’ll look forward to seeing me."
