The announcement that Kawasaki will compete in the MotoGP class of the FIM Road Racing Championship in 2003 marks the Japanese factory´s return to a series in which they haven´t competed since 1982 - an absence of twenty years.

Development of the ZX-RR four-stroke is being undertaken by the factory in Japan, with former Kawasaki World Superbike rider, Akira Yanagawa, heavily involved in the development process.

2000 was 2 years ago....dude, I am talking about now, today, they had to switch to the 4 stroke prototype bike becasue they most likely reached the break even point in $$ in R&D for the 2 stroke compared to how well it could be improved compared to the other bikes...
