Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. has announced an agreement with Jason Pridmore and his STAR Motorcycle School to be their official motorcycle through 2016. The Kawasaki Ninja® motorcycle will be used by the schools instructors, and all students participating in over 30 training courses annually will have the opportunity to demo.
“I’m so happy that STAR Motorcycle School and Kawasaki have aligned for this year and into 2016,” said Jason Pridmore. “The Ninja started it all for me as I won my first AMA National on a ZX™-7R in 1992. We are both so excited to collaborate on educating all levels of riders throughout the industry. STAR’s “Next Generation Motorcycle Training” program has many new features and on top of that we have 20 new Kawasaki Ninja motorcycles for all to come and enjoy.”
The STAR Motorcycle School has earned praise by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF), which offers motorcycle insurance rate discounts to students who have completed the STAR course. Jason Pridmore is also the official motorcycle safety trainer for the Marine Corps Semper Ride program, for which he will also be using Kawasaki Ninja motorcycles. Reduced rates for the STAR Motorcycle School will be extended to Kawasaki dealers and customers interested in completing the STAR Motorcycle School course.
“All of us at Kawasaki couldn’t be happier to team up with Jason Pridmore and the STAR School,” said Marketing VP Chris Brull. “Jason has been in the motorcycle training business for over 17 years and has proven to be one of the most influential ambassadors for motorcycle safety in this industry. His passion for riding extends to the Kawasaki Ninja line, where both he and his father have a history of racing success. We look forward to collaborating with him and the STAR Motorcycle School to achieve our shared goals.”
STAR Motorcycle School will have 20 Kawasaki Ninja motorcycles in their fleet, with models ranging from the Ninja® 300 to the Ninja ZX™-10R.
