Ride the Kawasaki Z1000R and Z650 at the MCN Festival

1 of 5

As part of the huge 100 bike test fleet at this years Carole Nash MCN Festival of Motorcycling, Kawasaki are bringing along three new models to try out, the Z1000R, Z900 and Z650.

All 100 of the test fleet machines will be available to ride on both days (May 13-14) with escorted rides through the glorious Cambridgeshire countryside, a route that will include a mix of fast A-roads and twisty back lanes, perfect for all types of bikes and riders.

Kawasaki’s full test fleet


Booking a test ride on the three new nakeds couldn’t be easier, just go to the Kawasaki stand with your riding kit and appropriate licence on the day. With over 100 bikes on the Festival test fleet, if you want to pack in more than a few rides it makes sense to bring your tent…



Make a weekend of it

Camping is a great way to experience all that the Festival has to offer. Not only can campers watch a full Championship Speedway round for free on Saturday night* but they also gain early access into the show, giving them the opportunity to be the first to sign up for test rides. Plus campers get access to the retail zone to bag an early bargain.

There’s also some great evening entertainment for those who stay all weekend – Yamaha will be hosting the MT Dark Side Party on both Friday and Saturday evening with plenty of live music to get the party in full swing.

Advance day tickets and camping packages are now on sale, with discounted day tickets at £15 online, seniors (over 65) £11 and camping starts at £30 per person. Children go free.

*Day ticket-holders can watch the Championship Speedway round (Peterborough Panthers v Newcastle Diamonds) but will need to buy an additional £16 ticket on the gate
