On July 7-9 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Riders of Kawasaki, will showcase the riders and machines that have made Kawasaki motorcycles famous for more than five decades in America.
“Since 1966, Kawasaki has delivered on its promise to provide American motorcyclists high-performance fun, sensible transportation, the keys to two-wheeled adventure and everything in between,” said AMA Chief Operations Officer Jeff Massey. “AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Riders of Kawasaki, will tell the stories of the men and women who have enjoyed Kawasaki’s incredible machines, from the 1966 Samurai to the breathtaking 2017 Ninja H2R, and in the off-road arena, we’ve seen bikes like the legendary Bighorn and the championship-winning KX250F and KX450F motocross bikes.
“In addition, this partnership allows us to highlight some of the benefits of the AMA affinity program, including ROK, Powered by the AMA, designed for AMA members who are fans of Kawasaki motorcycles,” Massey added.
Kawasaki has a rich heritage of performance, exemplified by the launch of the Mach III 500cc two-stroke triple in 1969 and then the legendary four-cylinder 900cc Z1 just four years later. Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA will have on display several historic machines from the company’s private collection at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days to celebrate that history.
“Kawasaki and ROK, Powered by the AMA, are proud to be a part of AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, which draws tens of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts each year,” said Greg Lasiewski, Senior Brand Communications/Sponsorships and ROK Specialist. “We encourage all Kawasaki riders to make the trip to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course to experience this great event firsthand.”
The grand marshal for AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days, featuring Riders of Kawasaki, will be announced soon.
