New Hart Centre For Victoria

7 April 2009 - The first phase of work has been completed on the massive site in Melbourne’s north that will become the new location for Honda Australia Rider Training (HART).

To celebrate the training centre’s Grand Opening at 200 Sydney Road, Somerton, HART will host a public event in the near future.

HART has long been considered the preeminent provider of rider training and licensing in Victoria, and will now boast two massive road ranges allowing for both novices and experienced riders to obtain realistic road speeds and situations.

In addition to learners, licence, intermediate and advanced road riding courses, the new facility will also offer off road training for kids and novice adults, as well as ATV training on a purpose built track.

“This is one of the most exciting developments since HART’s initial opening 20 years ago,” said HART National Manager Mark Collins.

“We are particularly excited to be able to appeal to even more riders at the new site as we have access to excellent off road training areas as well.”

“I firmly believe that these new facilities as well as the technologies that HART use in training such as the Riding Simulator are firmly cementing us as the industry leader, as well as assisting to reduce motorcycle crashes on and off the road.”

In addition to the formalities on the day, the Grand Opening will include free “Try It” sessions for beginners and experienced Riders (bookings required ahead of event on (03) 9335 2766), $50 off any course booked and paid for on the day (subject to availability), and free demo rides of the Honda road fleet (bookings required on the day).

HART is also promoting the wearing of protective clothing through the sale of discounted riding gear on the day.

Further highlights will include a free sausage sizzle at lunch time, Riding Simulator sessions conducted by senior HART instructors, and road, off road and ATV demonstrations.
