2017 WORCS and NHHA Champion Gary Sutherlin enlists into Suzuki RM Army

Brea, Calif, (December 22, 2017) – Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (SMAI) is excited to announce the enlistment of reigning WORCS and AMA National Hare & Hound Champion Gary Sutherlin to Suzuki’s RM Army for 2018. A Montana native now residing in California, Sutherlin will pilot the 2018 Suzuki RMX450Z which shares core technologies with Suzuki’s Championship-winning RM-Z450 but is designed for the rigorous demands of off-road. Features of the RMX450Z include a powerful, electric start, fuel-injected 449cc engine, slim aggressively styled chassis, 18” rear wheel and full enduro instrumentation and lighting.  

“We are very excited at the opportunity to work with Gary this coming season. He has always impressed me with his work ethic, both on and off the bike. I know he’s the perfect fit to the growing RM Army community and gives Suzuki off-road racing fans a yellow bike to cheer for!” said Chris Wheeler, Motocross Racing Manager.

“I’m extremely excited to partner with Suzuki for 2018 and race the RMX450Z.  Being the face of Suzuki’s RM Army off-road racing is an opportunity I’m truly grateful for.  I can’t wait to defend the number one plate and help develop the RMX450Z.” said Gary Sutherlin, 2017 WORCS and NHHA Champion.

Sutherlin’s first race aboard the 2018 Suzuki RMX450Z will be at round one of the AMA District 37 Big6 GP Series on January 12-14 in Adelanto, California.  To learn more about the 2018 Suzuki RMX450Z and the RM Army, please visit suzukicycles.com and racesuzuki.com.  Be sure to stay up to date on all Suzuki racing news and events by following Suzuki and Gary Sutherlin social channels!
