factory-backed WK bikes team all fired up for TT

WK Bikes Racing team will again contest the Lightweight TT at the Isle Of Man this June, with a full factory-backed CF Moto 650i.  The team has secured two-time TT race winner Gary Johnson to pilot the 650cc lightweight machine.

The CF Moto factory in China has again offered its full support to WK Bikes and the TT race project, with CF Moto distributors worldwide using the promotion at the TT to emphasise the quality and performance of the 650cc fuel injected, liquid-cooled machine from China`s leading motorcycle manufacturer.

The development programme of the bike has not gone completely as planned, with the race machine being totally destroyed in a fire last September.  Since then many hours have been invested to rebuild the bike and push forward the development programme.

“Chris and the team at Chris Gunster Dyno Centre have worked tirelessly to build a race bike from the ground up over the past five months, which has not been easy following the fire in September,” said WK Bikes MD Mike Hinkley (pictured with Gary Johnson).

“The bike has now undergone further development and we are very happy with the level that we are now at.  We plan to improve on last year’s results and with Gary back in the saddle we believe that we can gain a good result,” added Mike.

The CF Moto 650i was launched in 2012 and was the first large-capacity motorcycle to come out of China.  It has been distributed in the UK by long-term CF Moto partner WK Bikes and is distributed to more than 70 countries worldwide.
