Officially launched in 2016, Kawasaki Rider Training Services is a UK wide network of schools and approved training bodies offering professional riding training to industry leading standards.
While the schools and training bodies remain independent, they’re officially endorsed and branded by Kawasaki and work to standards set by the MCIAC – the Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre – and have a fleet of new Kawasaki machinery.
To date there are 14 active schools who form part of KRTS, with the plan to have over 60 within the next three years.
Kawasaki British Supersport rider, Mason Law, passed his test through KRTS, taking an intensive course to gain his motorcycle road licence: “I really enjoyed my time during the training. It was certainly different to what I am used to, which is going round circuits as fast as I can, but my instructor Rob was patient and went through everything clearly.”
Off-road specialist and owner of LDR Training facility, Lee Dunham, is used to being off-road and with 23 years of off-road racing under his belt, the multiple AMCA British and double IMBA European Champion passed his test with KRTS. He said: "Road knowledge and the way that you ride a bike on the road is completely different to driving a car. It certainly opened my eyes to how unique and good the trainers and examiners are. It gave me so many more skills that I can take with me to my off-road riding, and it’s also given me a lot more skills that I can use in my driving as well! Plus, it’s nice to achieve a really good goal like that."
