Girl Torque, Suzuki Great Britain’s new female-centric motorcycling web resource, has been launched to provide news, features, advice and information on all things bike, but with a female twist. There will be regular blogs from interesting female bikers, as well as tailored advice on kit and accessories.
To back up the recent launch of the site, there’s a female-only track day in the pipeline at Donington Park for lady bikers who want to try out the thrills of circuit riding. There will even be a chance to try out the latest Suzuki GSX-R sports bikes, and experienced tutors on hand to help women improve their riding skills, whether they’re track veterans or complete beginners.
Suzuki GB’s Michael Le Flay explained what was behind the launch of Girl Torque. “We don’t see female motorcyclists any differently from male riders, but what we do understand is the subtle differences and challenges faced. As such a male-dominated pastime, but with a healthy increase in female riders, we know that relevant information is not so easily accessible. For example, riding clothing sizes can be difficult to judge, as much as it may be for a new rider to understand the differences needed when it comes to seat heights. On top of this, we’re going to run some initiatives to make the world of motorcycling, and Suzuki specifically, feel as inclusive as possible.”
Girl Torque is part of the Suzuki GB website, under the ‘MySuzuki’ section.
