Recognising the demand within its dealer network for not just new, but also quality pre-owned machines, Kawasaki Motors UK has unveiled an industry leading vehicle support scheme branded "Kawasaki Select - Used and Approved".

Select incorporates many distinctive and valuable features. At its very core is the principle that it is run and supported by Kawasaki and its dealers directly and does not rely on third parties - often the downfall of so many other schemes in terms of quality, response time and customer service.

Kawasaki dealers are now able to offer pre-owned Kawasaki motorcycles which have passed a stringent 41 point check using their own Kawasaki trained mechanics. Covering a raft of mechanical aspects, the check list also covers the suspension and chassis as well as electrics, and even a thorough check on machine history including investigation of any outstanding finance. Only after all of these checks are completed satisfactorily can a pre-owned Kawasaki appear on the showroom floor as a Select machine.

Select bikes will therefore be guaranteed to have a full main dealer service history, have covered less than 30,000 miles and, for extra peace of mind, will all come with a FREE extended factory backed manufacturer warranty. Checked against a national insurance and finance database, dealers will promote Select motorcycles as a hassle free pre-owned purchase with the Kawasaki name and reputation behind them.

Launching Select, Kawasaki Motors UK Technical and Customer Service Manager, Richard Metcalfe said, "What we've achieved far exceeds anything else currently available. Select is a truly impressive fully manufacturer and dealer supported pre-owned motorcycle offering".
