Suzuki: $4.2 Million in Racing Contingency

Motorcycle Racing Contingency

For the 2012 Motocross and Road Racing season in the states, American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) is offering more than $4.2 million in contingency to racers.

This contingency will be offered to stateside amateur and pro racers who purchase either 2011 or 2012 RM85/85L, RM-Z250, RM-Z450, GSX-R600, GSX-R750 or GSX-R1000 motorcycles.

Pat Alexander (ASMC Amateur Support Manager) says: "Suzuki is proud to continue carrying on this long and significant tradition of providing support to our most dedicated racers.

"We are excited about seeing Suzuki riders on top of the podiums around the country, in both Motocross and Road Racing. I have been fortunate enough to see some of the world’s greatest racing talent competing for Suzuki contingency dollars in the past, and I look forward to enjoying that privilege again in the very near future."

For nearly three decades, ASMC has provided extensive contingency support to amateur and pro racers alike, and the 2012 season will be no different. Suzuki continues to reward racers who purchase the RM/RM-Z and GSX-R product lines and, in turn, support Suzuki dealers.

Complete details outlining the dates and locations of the 2012 Suzuki Contingency Program will be available soon on suzukicycles.com.
