Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. plans to tour the U.S. with a collection of unique and unusual cruiser motorcycles as part of Kawasaki's fifth annual Custom Cruiser Tour (CCT).
The 10-city tour will begin April 7 at Arizona Bike Week in Scottsdale and conclude in October at the Steel Pony Express in New Orleans. At certain locations the tour will also feature demo rides where motorcycle-licensed consumers will have the opportunity to test ride Vulcan cruisers. Test rides will be offered at Arizona Bike Week, Myrtle Beach Bike Week, Thunder in the Valley, and the Sturgis Rally.
“The CCT is a way for Kawasaki to show its commitment to the cruiser market while focusing on the unique opportunities that exist for riders to personalize their motorcycles,” said Bruce Stjernstrom, director of marketing.
“During each of the preceding years, we've seen interest in this program expand - both from riders and our dealers - and the 2006 schedule gives us a chance to showcase some of the most unique custom variations,” said Stjernstrom. “While each bike is special, they also provide riders with a glimpse of what can be accomplished with their own Vulcan cruiser, accessory add-ons, and a little imagination.”
