Yoshimura Suzuki Racing

Iconic: widely known and acknowledged especially for distinctive excellence. -- Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary.

That textbook’s definition of “Iconic” appropriately applies to both Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing and the Suzuki GSX-R1000. Brands only become icons after years of success and a winning tradition. The consistent and time-honored experiences over the years eventually become the stuff of legend. And when it comes to road racing, Yoshimura Suzuki is truly steeped in tradition – the tradition of racing and, perhaps more importantly, the tradition of winning. Indeed, this team is iconic.

For decades, Suzuki has been the dominating force in AMA Superbike. No other manufacturer even comes close to approaching the extraordinary number of records that Suzuki has set within this genre of racing. From the number of championships captured, to the overall races won, to the pole positions set, Suzuki stands alone.

For the 2017 season, Yoshimura Suzuki has the potential to exceed even its own expectations and traditions with the addition of the newly-redesigned Suzuki GSX-R1000. Suzuki engineers took years of racing-winning knowledge and packed the new GSX-R1000 with the latest in innovations, all in a smaller, lighter, more agile and more powerful package.

Former AMA Supersport Champion Roger Hayden begins his fourth year racing the Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 in MotoAmerica AMA Superbike. He is joined by former Moto2 World Champion Toni Elias, who made a stunning MotoAmerica debut in 2016. Hayden and Elias are both eager to hit the track on the new 2017 Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000, which will add to the rich winning tradition of the Suzuki GSX-R line.

Thanks to Suzuki’s proven Championship DNA and superior technology, the team is looking for the upcoming year of racing to culminate with another championship. The 2017 MotoAmerica AMA Superbike season will once again see Suzuki Own The Racetrack.
