Club Kawasaki Membership Cards Go Digital

We're pleased to let you know that you are now able to access your membership card instantly and download a digital version from your account page once you have logged in at: www.club-kawasaki.co.uk. 

If any changes are made to your account such as a renewal, you will be able to generate and download a new card. As you're now able to access your membership card digitally, we will no longer be printing and posting physical membership cards.

There are a number of reasons for this decision and a number of benefits to this new system which include reducing the number of staff in the Kawasaki UK office and contact between staff members and members as well as save on costs at a crucial time meaning when we're able, we'll be able to come back bigger and better. 

We may look to bring physical cards back at a point in the future, should the situation change, we will let you know. We thank you in advance for your understanding at this difficult time.

Kawasaki Dealer Highlight – Holeshot Motocross

The UK might be back in another lockdown, but our extensive dealer network remains open for essential repairs and maintenance, as well as offering 'click and collect' services on bikes, spares and merchandise.

As we wait to get back on the road and seeking new adventures, we thought we would highlight some of our Kawasaki dealers from across the country, and today we had a quick chat with Liam Ulett at Holeshot Motocross.

KMUK: So, firstly, tell us a little but about Holeshot Motocross? 
HM: “Well we're based in Salisbury, and nowadays we're are one of Kawasaki's Largest off-road dealers. However, the journey began about 15 years ago when I was buying and selling motorbikes from home! I was working in the car trade at the time, but bikes were my passion so I began working from my home and I was slowly able to grow and move up to bigger premises to the new state-of-the-art premises we operate from today.”

For me, they are also one of the most solid and recognisable brands in the off-road world. Even when we have non-motorcyclists coming in for their first bike they know the name Kawasaki!”

KMUK: You mentioned your new showroom, when did that open?
HM: “Yeah, we're really proud of our new place. It's still based in Salisbury, on the same trading estate that we have always been on, but it's our biggest and most up to date yet. My dream has always been to have one of those one-stop-shop style venues for motocross riders, like those you see in America, and this new 30,000 square foot facility is our chance to offer off-road fans that option.

We are now able to offer everything, from new and used bikes to spare parts, servicing and everything in between. We even stock the latest Kawasaki Mules, Utility and latest edition is Watercraft too!

KMUK: How has the last year been for you?

HM: “The lockdown has certainly been tough – we only officially launched our new premises on December 1st so to go straight into a lockdown certainly wasn't ideal! We are open though for click and collect services, and it's been fantastic to see how many people are still purchasing bikes and spares.

The all-new electric start 2021 KX250 has also been a huge point of interest for our customers. We completely sold out before it had even arrived and we're still getting requests about it.”

KMUK: You've been with Kawasaki for a while, has there been a particular highlight?
HM: “That's a tough one. We've had some fantastic memories with the brand over the years, but I think the work we did with Tommy Searle was one of the best. Partnering with him and lifting the MX1 title is something we'll always remember.”




#UNLOCKYOURFREEDOM

Kawasaki Motors UK are supporting the #UnlockYourFreedom initiative that has been launched by the Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) to highlight the reasons why riding a scooter or motorcycle is a great alternative to stay isolated and safe.

Government advice states: ''Consider all other forms of transport before using public transport,” therefore increasing numbers of people are looking for reliable and quick modes of transport during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Motorcyclists across the world already know the benefits of two wheels - they're affordable, economical, fun and can help ease congestion. However, the list of advantages has been expanded even further now that being socially distanced is high on people's agendas. Now, choosing two-wheels is a safer alternative to public transport as it allows individuals to remain isolated and a safe distance from others outside of their households.

If you're 17 or over, you can ride a motorcycle or scooter up to 125cc or 11KW having completed your Compulsory Basic Training (CBT). Or if you're 16, you're able to ride a scooter up to 50cc without even passing a test, all you have to do is complete CBT which often takes as little as one day.

Find essential information about the licensing process at the #unlockyourfreedom website, and if you want to learn to ride with Kawasaki, don't forget to look at Kawasaki Rider Training Services - KRTS - for your motorcycle training needs.
