A family of Ninja ZX-6R and Ninja ZX-10R motorcycles have joined Steve Brogan's coaching stable and they are now available to hire by aspiring track riders of all skill levels at circuits around the UK and further abroad in Europe.
Steve Brogan's experience spans from racing 600cc Supersport and 1000cc Superbikes, to competing in the highest level of the British Superbike Championship and making an appearance in selected rounds of European and World Championships. Steve also managed a Kawasaki supported Superstock 1000cc racing team in the British Superbike championship. With hundreds of clients and more than five years of coaching experience to his name, 'Brogie' has fine-tuned a technique of quickly understanding what riders are doing wrong and pointing them in the right direction.
“I've learnt quite a bit over the last twenty years of racing, doing things the right way and wrong way. I've paid the price of getting things wrong and one of the biggest motives for my Superbike school is to give all the track riders the education they need to not make the same mistakes I did over the years,” commented Brogan.
“I have worked with different levels of riders on track from novice to intermediate and up to club level racers. Even club riders can still make big improvements but the margins are a little smaller.”
“I'm very passionate about what I do because when you get it wrong on a race track it can cost a lot of money, so I see my school as an investment that will pay off in the long run where riders will avoid simple yet costly mistakes, learn skills that will not only improve their track riding but also their road riding skills and ultimately this will help clients enjoy their riding so much more I believe,” said Steve.
Customers can expect to begin their day with Steve explaining everything he will be doing on the track. Riders will follow Steve to view his riding techniques and eventually overtake him so that an analysis of their riding can be made. “I'll have a look at them and see what they are doing and I'll give them feedback after every session with a debrief. Everyone receives one-on-one tuition in the group, even with a full group, our customers will get plenty of individual tuition and that is our promise.”
The decision to partner with Kawasaki was an easy one for Brogan who said, “I've always had a good relationship with Kawasaki over the years and it has always been a special brand for me because it was the first bike I raced in 1994 (Kawasaki AR80), when I was fourteen years old and it was also my last race bike in 2013 which was the Ninja ZX-10R. I ran my own Kawasaki supported team in 2014 and from there it was a natural partnership as there was only ever one choice.”
The Ninja ZX-10R has made an impression on Brogan who said, “I absolutely love it. It lives up to all the hype and it surprised me in a few areas. I have a lot of experience with the top sports bikes because I've ridden and raced most of the brands so I'm definitely impressed with the Ninja ZX-10R.”
