Product text

During my time with Ten Kate Motoren, a small part of my job was to write a few product information text for their online store. This would help the customer to make a decision on which item they should buy. Read a few of these texts down below.


Ten Kate Motoren might be best known for it’s racing success in the World Superbike and World Supersport. However, in the Netherlands it is also a big motorcycle store, workshop, and clothing department. I worked for several years in the clothing department selling anything from helmets to suits, communication and more.

Every once a while I would be asked to write some product texts for the online store, and I was more than happy to do this. Please find below just three of these product texts:
