Test ride any Kawasaki at the BMF Show

1 of 1

Kawasaki is launching a new nationwide test riding roadshow at this weekend’s BMF Show in Peterborough with the entire 2010 range available to ride.

A Kawasaki spokesman said: “Recognising that no dealer can have the majority of bikes in the growing and diverse road bike Kawasaki offering as demonstrators, the company will visit seven locations over a three month period starting in mid May.

“Focusing on known biker meeting places – or significant motorcycling events – the tour is being seen as an ideal way for a huge cross section of current and potential new owners to experience many machines from the Kawasaki range that interest them, but that they have not yet had an opportunity to ride.” 

With fifteen models available to test from the newly introduced pair of 125cc machines, through the popular middleweight ER and Versys series, to the cruiser range and large capacity sports, supersports and touring machines there is a lot of choice.

Kawasaki’s Sales and Marketing Manager, Michael Johnstone, said: “We’ve recently launched a new web site at www.kawasakitestride.co.uk so that customers can see what demonstrator bikes their nearest dealer has and book a ride. “
