The Ninja brand is officially a quarter of a century old in 2009, and Kawasaki Motors UK is set to recognise the important anniversary in style.

Alongside events planned at Kawasaki dealers across the UK, the celebration will focus on a week long calendar of activities and events starting on Saturday 8 August.

Kick-starting the UK element of the worldwide celebration at the upcoming Brands Hatch British Superbike event on 8 and 9 August, festivities will include a display of significant Ninja machines, interviews with current and past Ninja riders plus other surprise attractions.

Ensuring that the event is recognised and highlighted right across Britain, Sales and Marketing Manager for Kawasaki Motors UK, Michael Johnstone, announced a very special competition offering a unique and valuable Ninja prize.

"Kawasaki and its legions of Ninja riders believe that these machines hold a very special place in the world of motorcycling. To recognise the value of this iconic brand, we will be offering a totally unique Ninja ZX-6R as a prize in a nationwide competition."

"As the machine that created the middleweight Supersports class all those years ago, it is fitting that we offer this accessorised machine in its unique paint scheme to one lucky winner in our free to enter draw. We hope that by registering for the competition on-line, and subsequently visiting their local Kawasaki dealer, thousands of people will share in this exciting celebration and unique competition".
