After winning one of the greatest heavyweight fights in history against the legendary Wladimir Klitschko, Watford’s Anthony Joshua might have a little more time to spend riding his Kawasaki motocross bike – but maybe he should graduate to a 450!
Back in 2015 Joshua was given a 250f by Kawasaki and was more than happy to get his hands on it!
Anthony said at the time: “I’m so excited to get my hands on this bike. I’ve been planning to get it for months but I wanted to wait until after the fight so I didn’t lose focus. A lot of people are surprised when they find out that I enjoy riding bikes but I love them – I’ve been riding them since I was in my early teens and love spending time with my mates riding.
“The Kawasaki KX250F was an obvious choice for me, it’s a proven winner – so we’ve got something in common! I can’t wait to get out on it now – my friend has already decided that he wants one too now…”
The KX250F features a liquid-cooled, four-stroke single cylinder 249cc engine and is priced at £6349. It weighs 106.2kg – that’s 2kg less than Anthony…
Gill Jockel, Marketing Section Head for Kawasaki UK, said: “We’re really pleased that Anthony Joshua rides a Kawasaki. Our whole philosophy for Team Green is to nurture talent and ensure it rises through the ranks – and that’s exactly what AJ is doing in the boxing world. We wish him lots of fun on his new green-machine and look forward to keeping up to date with his adventures on social media.”
