2016 TEAM SUZUKI AMATEUR RACING

Suzuki’s passion for motorcycling has led to a vibrant and successful history of motorcycle racing. From dirt racing to road racing, the passion to build athletes into champions and the desire to develop race-winning machines is a passion that has been ingrained into Suzuki’s DNA.

The future success of Team Suzuki’s professional racing efforts relies significantly on the stars of the next generation. For 2016, Suzuki is excited to announce the revival of its incredibly successful Team Suzuki Amateur Racing program. The program that helped foster some of the top names in today’s Supercross and Motocross roster has been re-introduced in 2016 with the next generation of rising amateur racers.

Suzuki is proud to support its six new team members, four who will ride the RM85 and two who will ride both the RM-Z250 and RM-Z450, and looks forward to the return of Team Suzuki Amateur Racing in 2016.
