May is the unofficial start of the motorcycle season in central Ohio and the perfect time for Pony Powersports Group to announce the addition of Kawasaki Motorcycles and ATVs.

Locally owned Pony Powersports Group is quickly becoming one of the top motorcycle dealerships in the nation. Their enthusiasm, dedication and expertise have earned the praise and devotion of riders looking to fulfill their motorcycling wants and needs. Kawasaki fans will now have the opportunity to experience the award winning sales and service of Pony Powersports.

This is a lifelong dream for Cory Atwood, Chief Financial Officer of Pony Powersports Group and Iron Pony Motorsports. He was a 16 year old motocross racer riding a Kawasaki when he joined Iron Pony 22 years ago. There is pride when he talks about bringing together a couple of things he deeply cares about. Cory's enthusiasm for Pony Powersports and the Kawasaki brand are deep rooted. For Cory this isn't just a business opportunity……It is life coming full circle.

Kawasaki was founded as a ship builder in 1896. They started building motorcycles in 1954 and entered the US market in the mid-sixties. In less than ten years Kawasaki was firmly established as a leader and innovator in the US motorcycle market having introduced the Z1 in 1973. This bike burst through the established performance ceiling of street motorcycles and indicated the future direction for Kawasaki's efforts. Today Kawasaki continues this course, with an unquenchable thirst for performance and engineering excellence. This passion has made Kawasaki a favorite among motorcyclists.
