EXPORT KAWASAKI RACING UK WITH MOTOREX FIRMLY IN THE SADDLE The British love fast motorcycles, and the United Kingdom loves its motorbike racers. Since 2014, MOTOREX has been the official lubricant partner of Kawasaki Racing UK, and UK MOTOREX importer Bickers shares the passion for the racers in green. Kawasaki is everywhere among the island’s leading teams, from the smallest KX85 Motocross cup to the hugely popular British Superbike Championship. As Racing Manager for Kawasaki Motors UK, Ross Burridge knows better than anyone how closely his brand is linked with the racing scene. Naturally this has a positive impact on sales of his mass-market cycles. WITH BICKERS SINCE 1999 MOTOREX MOTOLINE lubricants and care products have been available on the British market for over 20 years. Since 1999, they’ve been successfully imported and distributed by brothers Don and Derek McMartin of the Bickers company. They exclusively serve the specialty retail market. Thanks to Bickers’ strong presence on the British racing scene and MOTOREX’s international success as lubricant partner to leading teams, Kawasaki Racing UK has been working with MOTOREX for over 15 years now. DIRECT LINE TO MOTOREX In racing, a lubricant that is precisely tailored to the engine and operating conditions is a key success factor. That’s why direct collaboration and experience-sharing between Kawasaki technicians and the MOTOREX Racing Lab is so important. 16
