Suzuki has again supported the motorcycle industry-backed Ride to Work Week this week, giving staff the chance to obtain their CBT certificate and take the first steps into acquiring a full motorcycle licence, while also making bikes available for those with licences, and encouraging them to go and ride.
Using a fleet of Address 110s and VanVan 125s, the training sessions were hosted in the car park at Suzuki GB where staff members without motorcycle licences were given the opportunity to take to two-wheels for the first time. After a morning’s tuition they were then given the chance to take to the road, before certificates were handed out at the end of the day with all of the team passing with flying colours.
With many members of staff already holding full motorcycle licences and avid riders, a host of models from the firm’s fleet were also made available for the team to ride over the course of the week.
Suzuki GB General Manager Paul de Lusignan commented, “Ride to Work Week is an important initiative for our industry and one we always want to support. It highlights the benefits commuting on two-wheels has and naturally we want to encourage as many people as possible to take up motorcycling. While everyone on the motorcycle side of the business is passionate about bikes, there are still a number who haven’t taken steps to obtaining their licences, so it’s great to be able to offer them the chance to do that, as well as invite people from other areas of the business to highlight the benefits of motorcycling, and just how much fun it is too.”
Suzuki’s on-road range boasts a number of machines perfect for new riders, including the newly-introduced Address 110, as well as the Burgman 125 and VanVan machines, while A2 licence-friendly machines include the Inazuma and Inazuma 250F, plus restrictor kits for larger machines.
