Toni Elias and Josh Herrin are looking to build on Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing’s winning legacy when the 2019 MotoAmerica Superbike season kicks off the Suzuki Championship at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia, on April 5-7. Elias and Herrin, each former champions of the series, are eager to once again hold up the No. 1 plate at the end of the year.

Both Yoshimura Suzuki riders will be racing the legendary Suzuki GSX-R1000 in this year’s MotoAmerica Superbike campaign. The Suzuki GSX-R1000 has won more races and championships than any other motorcycle in the 43-year history of the series.

This year’s Yoshimura Suzuki bikes will feature a new, more aggressive livery. And while fresh and updated, the new look retains the distinctive traditional racing colors of Yoshimura Suzuki.
