Backlund switched from Suzuki to Kawasaki last season when he raced the Pro-Superbike Swedish Championship scoring fourth position in the championship having missed pre-season testing and the first five races due to injury. The 22-year-old also contested the German Superbike Championship (IDM) and finished fourteenth in the two races he competed in at Assen and Hockenheim.
Cox competed the Superstock 1000 championship last year as he returned with the ILR Kawasaki squad.
