Kawasaki Motors Australia teams up with Champion’s Ride Days in 2017 to offer a range of road motorcycles for customers to hire at their track ride days.
The Queensland-based company has 18 years of experience with track days throughout Australia, hosting up to 120 events this year with the addition of NSW and NT venues.
Now it teams up with Kawasaki to not only offer green machines for riders, but to also host their Kawasaki Team Green Australia Track Ride Day events.
National Sales and Marketing Manager of Kawasaki Motors Australia, Robert Walker, says the partnership which will provide Champion’s Ride Days customers with “the opportunity to ride a range of formidable Kawasaki motorcycles”.
Previous Team Green events have included a range of Kwakas from a Z125 PRO, Versys 650L and Ninja H2R to more classic Kawasaki motorcycles including a 1976 Kawasaki Z1000.
Champion’s Ride Days started when now managing director Scott Osborne was racing, says Nicole Osborne, Sales and Marketing Manager of Champion’s Ride Days.
“He found that there were limited opportunities and it was difficult to find safe ways to practice, so he wanted to start a company that focused on safety and its alignment with riding on a track,” she says.
“There weren’t many regulations back when we started. For example, riders were allowed to wear jeans, ambulance and flag marshals weren’t mandatory, so we introduced mandatory elements of safety which was a first for a company in this field back then.
“Essentially we provide an opportunity for our customers to ride their pride and joy around a track, in a safe environment.
“We offer a range of services on the day including leather suit and gear hire, a tyre facility and if you don’t have your own bike, we can provide one for you to hire which will now be a Kawasaki.”
