British Superbike rider geared up for the season
•BSB race winner protected by Kushitani in 2015
•Will use leathers based on range-topping Elevation suit
•Josh will also use GPR-6 gloves - £189.95

Josh Waters will race in Kushitani leathers and gloves in the 2015 MCE British Superbike series on his factory-supported Halsall Racing Suzuki GSX-R1000.

The 28-year old Australian, a former two-time Australian Superbike champion and British Superbike race winner, is no stranger to the historic Japanese brand. Racing for the Yoshimura Racing Team on three occasions at the prestigious Suzuka 8 Hour, Josh took to the podium in 2011 and 2014 protected by Kushitani products.

For the 2015 MCE British Superbike Championship, Josh will re-unite with the Halsall Team he raced with in 2013 but will continue with Factory-backed Suzuki machinery that took him to two wins in the 2014 BSB series and a brace of top six finishes.

Over the 12 round series, Josh will utilise a fully customised version of the Kushitani Elevation; the Hamamatsu factory’s premier, GP-spec suit. Starting from £1649, it boasts a 1.5mm cowhide construction made from a breed of cows unique to Kushitani and is available to all customers fully customisable, in terms of sizing, colours and detailing.

Josh will also use the range-topping Kushitani GPR-6 gloves developed in MotoGP™ and the Suzuka 8-Hours. The GPR-6 glove gets its name from having six layers of outer protection and is the highest specification glove from Kushitani, focusing on maximum protection and comfort for riders who seek to get the most from their machines. Priced at £189.95, it is available in red, white, or black in sizes S-XXL.

Josh Waters said: “I’m really pleased to be wearing Kushitani products throughout the entire 2015 season. From their close working relationship with Yoshimura Racing, I’ve Kushitani in the Suzuka 8 Hours and that is a race that really pushes a product hard. Not only do I trust it for its excellent protection and comfort, the finish of them is truly stunning.”
