Honda UK has launched a 20-date Honda Motorcycle Experience at Donington Park, to give potential new riders the chance to try out powered two-wheelers in a safe environment.

Donington Park will host events throughout the summer, where anyone who wants to have a go on a motorcycle can pre-book a 90-minute taster session run by experienced instructors for just £39.99. The sessions will teach basic skills and help build confidence, with participants starting on a twist-and-go scooter and working up to a 125cc geared motorcycle.

The launch is part of both Honda’s and the wider industry’s drive to make it easier for people to try motorcycling. At the end of their session, participants will take a Honda Experience Skills Test to get a measure of how they’ve progressed, with expert advice on hand to talk through the next steps towards getting a full motorcycle licence.

Commenting on this initiative, Honda UK business planning manager Simon Herbert, said: “With so many benefits to motorcycling, from lower travel costs, reduced journey time and reduced emissions, through to the sheer fun factor of riding, we’re always keen to encourage new riders to give two wheels a try and to foster the next generation of motorcyclists. It’s for anyone who is considering getting on a bike but isn’t quite sure if they’ll like it.  We’ll give them a good introduction to the basics of motorcycling in a relaxed, informal and professional environment at a very affordable price.”
