Kawasaki have announced they will be attending their first ever MCN Festival of Motorcycling, which will be held at the Peterborough Arena on the weekend of 16th and 17th May. It means everyone who attends the event will have the opportunity to see, hear and try out the latest bikes from both on and off road.

Kawasaki will be there, both in the Manufacturer zone and managing a fleet of 2015 models within the Test Ride area. Visitors will be able to road test bikes from the demonstrator fleets as well as experiencing motorcycling as it used to be in the classic and vintage bike try-out zone.

Visitors can also soak up the atmosphere as dozens of world-class historic race bikes will be ridden on a specially built circuit, feast their eyes on a display of the greatest road and race bikes ever made and then seek out a bargain the retail village.

Former world champion and racing icon Kevin Schwantz will also be there to captain the USA team in new Transatlantic Trophy flat track races. For those that don’t remember, throughout the 1970s and 80s the Transatlantic Trophy was a spectacular race series that pitted the very best riders in the US against home grown British Talent. The biggest names in the sport were involved from Sheene to Roberts, Haslam to Rainey. In a special tribute to this incredible series the Trophy races will be resurrected at the MCN Festival in a series of flat track races.

Tickets cost £25 on the gate, but advance tickets are available for just £19 at www.mcnfestival.com and children go free with a paying adult (one child per adult).
