Kawasaki UK Launches Test Ride Website

By Cycle CanadaPosted on

Kawasaki UK has has created a new website, kawasakitestride.co.uk, where interested riders can sign up to test ride a Kawasaki street bike from their local dealer. Riders can search for new and used Kawis by location, and then schedule a test ride directly with the dealerships. 

In a 2008 J.D. Power and Associates report on the major factors determining motorcycle purchasing decisions, 25% of customers said that the inability to test ride bike was a major issue. Is Kawasaki UK’s new initiative a sign that  at least one of the Japanese motorcycle manufacturers are paying heed to their perspective customer’s cries?

We’re interested to  see how long it takes for similar programs to make it to the US and Canada.
