Suzuki has been named an Associate Sponsor of the 2022 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days

PICKERINGTON, OH – The American Motorcyclist Association is pleased to announce that Suzuki Motor USA will be an associate sponsor of the 2022 AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days presented by Royal Enfield, July 22-24 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.

“Suzuki is pleased to sponsor the AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days. With legendary Suzuki World Champion Kevin Schwantz as Grand Marshal, we are thrilled to join the AMA in Kevin’s honor as he presides over this important motorcycle event,” said Cary Graeber, Suzuki Vice President, Sales and Marketing Manager. “2022 is set to be a great year for Suzuki in the United States with new iconic products such as the all-new Hayabusa sport bike and the GSX-S1000GT+ sport tourer. We look forward to AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days as a celebration of Suzuki’s heritage and a great opportunity to showcase the excitement that Suzuki offers to riders today.”

The roots of Suzuki Motor Co. can be traced back to the production of looms in the early 1900s, and by the 1930s it had built its first automobile, and by the early 1950s it was building bicycle engines. Her first bike was a 1954 Colleda, and by the 1960s, Suzuki was winning on the Isle of Man and had five World Grand Prix titles in the 50cc and 125cc divisions. In the 1970s, Joel Robert and Roger DeCoster won multiple motocross world championships with Suzuki, and in the 1980s, the world-renowned and legendary GSX-R750 and GSX-R1100 entered the market.

“It’s impossible to quantify Suzuki’s impact on the motorcycle world since the 1950s,” said AMA Editorial Director Mitch Boehm, who himself owns several Suzuki GS1000S machines. “From the X6 Hustler to the Water Buffalo GT750 to the GSX-R to the state-of-the-art new Hayabusa and GSX-S1000GT+ sports tourers, Suzuki has been at the forefront of technology and design, and they will be showing new and legendary bikes at VMD. a treat.”
