Contact the regional sales office closest to you. All dealer inquiries go through one of the four regional sales offices: Texas, New Jersey, Georgia and California. The regional sales office will discuss requirements and options and provide information regarding the application process.
Kawasaki does not list any information regarding requirements to become a dealer, neither does the company provide information relating to the application process to the public; however, potential customers should expect to demonstrate the ability to make a substantial financial investment, have good credit and put together a sound business plan, as well as a sales and marketing plan.
Candidates seeking a dealership opportunity likely will have to submit to credit checks conducted by Kawasaki. Those with credit problems may want to postpone exploring dealership opportunities until fixing such issues.
