    More Details 8)

    Frankie Chili surprises many this week when it was announced that he would ride a works supported Klaffi Honda Fireblade in the this years World Superbike Championship.

    After many successful years of riding on a Ducati, Chili was approached by Klaus Klaffenbِck, owner and manager of the Klaffi Honda Team. Discussions ensued which ended with the Chili signing to join the team in 2005. With the Klaffi Honda Fireblade both believe that they will have a better chance to achieve a top position in World’s Superbike Championship in 2005.

    In comments on the Klaffi Honda website Frankie Chili said: “There were a lot of ups and downs during my career. Sometimes even nobody trusted in me, but especially in these situations I had success. Joining the Klaffi Honda Team means a super possibility for me to reach out for the Superbike Championship again. Honda and Klaus Klaffenbِck did all their best to make this possible.

    Beside this I want to say “Thank you” to my Italian crew. Even when we need a lot of time to discuss al the details they were waiting for my decision. Nobody left the crew. No we join together the Klaffi Honda Team and are looking forward to an exciting and successful World Championship 2005.”

    Klaus Klaffenbِck also commented, “I always promised our sponsors a rider, who is a winner. And also this time my promise comes true. During the last weeks we had a lot of discussions. Frankie Chili or Ben Bostrom – this was the question. Now the decision is taken: Frankie Chili rides a Klaffi Honda Fireblade in 2005.

    After his marvellous debut in the Supersport World Championship 2004 German Max Neukirchner will be the second rider in our Superbike Team.

    Tatu Lauslehto from Finland was the winner of the European Supersport Championship 2004. He will be our pilot in the Supersport World Championship.

    The first roll-out of our new bikes will be in January. Time is running and the World Championship starts with its first race 26th of February in Quatar.”
