Kawasaki is taking over Times Square in NYC on September 13, 2012 to share some very big news! Times Square is known as the “crossroads of the world,” and it’s the perfect stage to introduce the world to the 2013 line of Ninja sportbikes.

The Ninja Times Square Takeover event will cover two entire blocks and feature a full day’s worth of activities. It’s a celebration of the bike that created and continues to define the sportbike category since the introduction of the original Ninja more than 25 years ago.

The full line of 2013 Ninja sportbikes will be unveiled and on display, joined by some very important historic models. They include the original 1984 Ninja as well as the legendary 1973 Z1, hailed as the world’s first “superbike” and the motorcycle that set the stage for an entirely new motorcycle segment over the next few decades.

In addition to checking out the latest Ninja line, sportbike enthusiasts will be able to join a day-full of impressive events and activities, including:

• Exciting stunt shows by former SPEED TV host, Jason Britton • A chance to “take on” 9-time World Champion drag racer Rickey Gadson via a drag race simulator • Autograph sessions with racing champions Ryan Villopoto and Blake Baggett • 75 Ninja Riders "Enter Times Square" together! • Countdown on American Eagle LED Screen! • Executive Presentation On Stage • Consumer Photo Opps • Rider Interviews • Guest DJs including Pauly D of Jersey Shore • Customized motorcycle displays • Fashion Show • Military Tribute / Marine Color Guard • Graffiti Artists, Kids Face Painting, "Green Hair", Fake Ninja Tattoos, Balloon Artists • On-site sweepstakes to win one of two new Ninjas® (Given Away That Day) • Kawasaki merchandise giveaways and many more surprises!
