The store, accessible via www.kawasaki.co.uk, will allow customers
to place orders via the website and have those orders processed by selected
franchised UK Kawasaki dealers.

Kawasaki's network of road motorcycle retailers will fulfill orders
providing a welcome additional element of personal attention to the ordering
process re-enforcing Kawasaki's commitment to the highest quality customer

"We wanted a way for our Kawasaki brand fans to easily find and purchase
our products online while not losing the connection to their local dealer,"
said Tim Holden, Clothing and Accessory Coordinator for Kawasaki Motors UK.
"The local dealer is an essential component in our superior customer
experience, and this Shopatron initiative allows us to include them
seamlessly in every sale - including offering a delivery or collection
service to suit our customers' individual needs."

"This initiative will confirm Kawasaki as a leading brand in eCommerce
within the European motorcycle industry," added Shaun Moores, General Manager
of Shopatron's European operations.
