7 August 2013 Kawasaki Start Nationwide Motorcycle Training Network

With an ambition to establish up to five training centres across the UK, Kawasaki have entered a partnership with a Dorset based company to open the first enterprise of its type.
Run by Paul Gardner, the a2b school of motorcycling will carry Kawasaki branding and provide training for a diverse cross-section of those interested in taking up motorcycling plus those who may already have a licence and are keen to return.

From the very first principles of two-wheel control and traffic environment awareness to advanced road craft and riding techniques, the centre is equipped to cater for each level of the Department of Transport motorcycle test programme.

Equipped with what they consider to be the “ideal” teaching machine, the new centre has a fleet of Kawasaki ER-6n motorcycles which are equally adept as an introduction to biking as they are when used in intermediate and advanced training.

Commenting on the new initiative, Manager of Marketing and Brand Development for Kawasaki Motors UK, Mark Spiller, noted some of the key features of the scheme.

“For potential customers there is a huge advantage in knowing that the school they have selected has passed our stringent selection criteria. Equally, from a Kawasaki perspective it ticks another box in terms of delivering a Kawasaki specific solution across the breadth of a customer’s voyage of two-wheeled discovery. We now are actively looking for motorcycle training schools elsewhere in the UK to work with and would be delighted to hear from any interested parties”.

Editor’s note: Any existing motorcycle teaching enterprises interested in the Kawasaki training school network should call Ross Burridge on 01628 856662.
