HART QLD Celebrates First Birthday With Mate’s Rates

27 July 2009 - To celebrate their soon-to-be first birthday, Honda’s newest rider training centre located at Brisbane Airport (HART Queensland) is offering fantastic weekday mate’s rates.

“Our Queensland centre has experienced an exceptional first year of business with bookings exceeding expectations,” according to HART National Manager, Mark Collins.

“We are really pleased to see that the local community is responding so positively to having a rider training centre in the area that can provide proven, world-class programs.”

Brisbane HART is the fourth national centre in Honda’s network which is designed to provide a national strategic approach to improving training and safety for all riders, regardless of skill level.

HART Brisbane delivers Q-RIDE licence training and assessment and services the largest motorcycle market in Australia. They are the only provider to use a “riding simulator” to provide introductory skills and hazard perception.

The Honda Rider Trainer is a computer driven, easy-to-use, riding simulator that puts riders in real-life road traffic situations. The Windows compatible software provides a wide variety of options from city riding to touring on small, medium or large capacity machines, as well as with a manual or automatic (i.e. scooter) transmission. The simple design of the Riding Trainer includes motorcycle handlebars and pedal operation components, a seat, along with a lightweight frame and video monitor.

HART also operates in Victoria and NSW, and is Australia's leading rider training company delivering state-of-the-art teaching methods to over 17,000 riders each year.

HART is fully owned and run by Honda Australia who, apart from being a subsidiary of the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, is also one of the world’s largest trainers of motorcyclists.

The mate’s rates deal works by simply booking yourself and a friend in for any HART course on any weekday before September 30th and one rider will get a massive 50% off.
