The “mini-Nurburgring”, as it’s affectionately called, saw riders tackle the circuit under the watchful eye of track day specialists No Limits, while stunt rider extraordinaire Lee Bowers entertained the crowd.
A full range of 2017 Kawasaki models were available for demo rides throughout the day, with ten lucky winners earning themselves a year of free Club Kawasaki membership.
Father and son attendees Mike and Chris Berriman have visited K-World for the past four years, though this year has been a special one for Mike for a very specific reason…
“I’ve always had a good time at these events but this one has been particularly special because the H2 has been here and is available to ride out. It was an experience unlike any other that I’ve had on a bike. Would I buy one? If I had £25,000 to burn…absolutely. As I don’t, I think it’s going to be a Z1000SX, which I also rode today. It’s a delightful bike and easy to ride, which makes it sound like there’s no chance of enjoyment, but there is plenty of grunt and everything you need in a good bike but without the cramped riding position you get with racing bikes.”
Mike’s son, Chris, is no stranger to attending a K-World date or two either…
“It’s my third time along to the Kawasaki day and I’ve enjoyed it every time: doing the test rides, the stunt riders are always brilliant and I remember the mini bikes from one year were particularly good fun. It’s always well run, especially this year with the No Limits guys taking us out on roads round here. Good weather also helps of course. It’s been a fantastic day and I’m looking forward to the one next year!”
James Archibald, a journalist at Motorcycle News, took his Ninja 650 on track at the event...
“I had an amazing time riding my Ninja 650 longtermer at Cadwell. The weather was absolutely perfect and the atmosphere was really good. I think the demo fleet that Kawasaki comprised of a good range of bikes and I was surprised to see that there was even the monstrous H2 available. Lee Bowers also put on a really good show too and the day was a cracker. Thanks to Kawasaki for having me along, hopefully I can get along to the next one at Mallory too.”
There is still one more chance to experience the K-World Tour this year when it completes its 2017 season at Mallory Park in Leicester on Saturday 29 July. Attendance is free.
Those who pre-book their demo ride time slot will be in with a chance of winning a year of free Club Kawasaki membership. If you choose one of the ten lucky time slots, then the membership is yours, which will allow you to enjoy Club Kawasaki hospitality on the day with free refreshments.
Demo ride requirements:
a: Clear of all “CD”, “DD” and “DR” offences
b: Clear of all other offences including 5 or points per single offence and/or incurring 7 or more accumulated points
