Bikesafe team with RAF on Ducati Multistrada 1200s
BikeSafe have recieved ten Ducati Multistrada 1200s as part of their joint operation with the RAF to improve service personnel motorcycle training.
The official handover took place at RAF Brize Norton. Ten Ducati Multistrada 1200 motorcycles were delivered to BikeSafe - the police led initiative aiming to reduce the number of motorcyclists involved in accidents on the road by improving skills, knowledge and hazard awareness.
BikeSafe’s partnership with the RAF will involve the police putting an estimated 2,500 motorcycle riding RAF personnel through the workshops.
The scheme is funded by Highways England, which is responsible for 4000 miles of England’s motorways and major A routes.
Assistant Chief Constable Nick Adderley the National Police Chiefs Council lead for BikeSafe said:
“We are delighted by the recognition and direct support that BikeSafe has received from Highways England, a national body that is working in partnership with BikeSafe to reduce motorcycle casualties. This has enabled BikeSafe to purchase this fantastic fleet of Ducati motorcycles. These exciting and dynamically engaging bikes will be used for BikeSafe engagement and education of motorcyclists across the country, as well as keeping our service personnel safe through our partnership with the RAF.”
