Irvine, CA -(AmmoLand.com)- The motorcycling community is a tight knit group. Community is a large part of the experience of riding a motorcycle, and when a member of that community is wronged, people hear about it – fast.

In that spirit, Kawasaki has given a new 2016 Ninja ZX-6R sportbike to Army Veteran Brandon Jenkins after his bike was destroyed by a suspect fleeing police.

“The passion for riding is something we all hold deep inside of us and when we heard Brandon’s story I knew we had to help him,” said Kawasaki Vice President, Marketing Chris Brull. “All motorcycle enthusiasts look out for one another and when the Motorcycle Industry Council and AIMExpo reached out to us with his story, I knew that we could help Brandon.”

Last week, Brandon Jenkins was an innocent bystander when a wanted suspect fleeing police near Phoenix, Arizona tried to steal his motorcycle. Jenkins fought back and when the suspect fled, they ran over his motorcycle, causing major damage.

On Saturday, Kawasaki surprised Jenkins with the news that he would receive a new Ninja ZX-6R, and he picked up the motorcycle at Kelly’s Kawasaki yesterday in Mesa, Arizona.

Kudos to Kawasaki! Doesn’t hurt them that this will be great advertising.

Thank you Kawasaki, It’s not very often a company does something like this. My 22 year old sons Honda Vtx1800c was “totaled” when a suicidal car thief rear ended him and then was gunned down by police. He fought with the car lot the car was stolen from and was forced to go thru his insurance co. They cut him a check for $2000 and now he doesn’t have a bike at all. Sorry to spin off there, just glad to see a company do the “right” thing in the world we live in.
