The company has introduced a new track event, called the ‘Kaze Race Track Day’ at the Kari Motor Speedway racetrack. The track in Coimbatore will host the event on July 14, 2018. The fee for participation is Rs 7,900, exclusive of accommodation, travel and transport expenses (for motorcycle shipping).
‘Kaze’ is the Japanese word for wind. The track day will help riders hone their riding skills and Kawasaki has plans to host these events in the BIC and MMRT in the future. Kawasaki owners with bikes above 900cc can only participate at this event, for now. So, if you own a Z250, Ninja 300, Versys-X 300, Ninja 400, Z650, Versys 650, Ninja 650, Z800 or Vulcan S, you cannot participate in the event. The track day has been organised specifically for the brand's premium customers, according to Kawasaki; but the company does plan to host other events for those with sub-900cc Kawasaki motorcycles.
The Kaze Race Track Day will be held in association with the RACR (Rajini Academy of Competitive Racing). RACR is headed by Indian racer, Rajini Krishnan, who recently won the opening round of the 2018 Malaysia Superbike Championship.
