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.

Yoshimura Suzuki has a long and rich tradition in AMA Superbike and is the winningest team in the history of the series with 13 Championships dating back to 1979.
