A Google search, checking Avintia Racing and Kawasaki UK & USA, Avintia and MotoGP social media all provided zero results of Avintia's significant new bike. Even provided just one photo.

Is this what their entry fee buys? Throughout the web the only photos I found were pre season testing or from last season. Expensive 'media buy' by Avintia Racing so far.

Is there a story here? Avintia Racing gained a reputation for effective self promotion (or being brash?) They have a brand new machine, coupled with far greater Kawasaki involvement- even Yoda's deputy has been photographed in Avintia's garage. Despite this, the only photos on their web site or Facebook page, even under their most recent section, were all from 2013. Odd.
