Suzuki Gives Stewart Custom Yoshimura Hayabusa

Custom Yoshimura Suzuki Hayabusa

Following the 2012 AMA Supercross Championship, James “Bubba” Stewart signed a “multi-year” contract with Yoshimura Suzuki Racing.

And to welcome him to Suzuki, American Suzuki Motor Corp. presented Stewart with a custom, one of a kind, Yoshimura-built Hayabusa during the 2013 Suzuki Dealer Convention at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas Monday.

In addition to custom paint and graphics sporting Stewart’s JS7 logo, the Hayabusa has also been outfitted with a gorgeous pair of BST carbon fiber wheels that feature ceramic bearings provided by Brock’s Performance.

A Brock’s offset top clamp and window links lower the chassis to finish off its “street-prowler” stance. The JS7 Custom Busa is scheduled to display in the American Suzuki/Yoshimura R&D booth during select Progressive International Motorcycle Shows.

For the 2013 AMA Supercross/Motocross championships, Stewart will compete on the No. 7 Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450.
