The donation of the Ninja 1000 ABS is the most recent in a long list of donated off-road and road motorcycles, Jet Skis and training tools/diagnostic equipment to TAFEs in recent years.
Kawasaki also conducts technical trainings at various TAFEs involving the use of KDS (Kawasaki Diagnostic Software) and KRS (Kawasaki Racing Software) for the benefit of TAFE instructors.
Ultimo Tafe …. Peter Denison say’s, “We greatly appreciate the donation of modern state of the art motorcycles like the Ninja 1000 ABS by Kawasaki. With the constant development and improvements in motorcycle manufacture, it’s so important that students get the opportunity to work on modern machinery so they are equipped to face whatever might come there way in the day to day business of a motorcycle mechanical workshop. Donations like this from Kawasaki facilitate this training greatly so we thank them.”
Kawasaki Australia Technical Services Manager, Peter Spindlow, who was also present for the hand-over, say’s, “The TAFE system does such an outstanding job in training the next generation of motorcycle mechanics which is of paramount importance to the future of the industry. Kawasaki recognises this so it is with great pleasure that we assist them in this crucial training process and support the long term viability of the industry.”
Teacher Paul Sampieri confirmed that he and his students dissembled the rear suspension of the Ninja 1000 ABS just hours after it was received so the class could be educated on the very latest in suspension technology.
Kawasaki looks forward to continuing to donate products and training to TAFEs and learning institutions across Australia.
