Suter 580cc two-stroke to race 2016 Isle of Man TT

Posted:

Swiss racing motorcycle manufacturer Suter Racing has confirmed that it will make its debut at the 2016 Isle of Man TT Races fuelled by Monster Energy.

The company has built the Suter MMX 500, a 580cc two-stroke engined machine, which it will campaign in the RST Superbike and PokerStars Senior TT Races.

The spectacular two-stroke motorcycle has already generated significant excitement with motorbike fans around the world and was named as ‰Û÷the most desirable motorcycle‰Ûª at the 2015 Eicma Motorcycle show in Milan.

The Suter MMX 500 was launched globally in September 2015 at the Airforce Center DÌ_bendorf in front of 300 invited VIP guests. The company has developed only 99 racing motorcycles, aimed at the wealthy private amateur racer, at a price of CHF 120,000 (å£85,000, $125,000, ‰âÂ109,000).

‰ÛÏA launch of this nature with a limited run of motorcycling would ordinarily not be spectacular but the fact that the Suter has a 580cc two-stroke engine evokes almost hysterical emotion with the association of the wild days of 500cc Grand Prix racing where legends like Kenny Roberts, Eddie Lawson and Wayne Gardner, just to name a few, regularly fought thrillingly for podiums and against crashing," Ex-GP rider and CEO Eskil Suter said , "The furious power explosion of the former two-stroke bikes was still memorable to real fans and is considered the golden age of motorcycle racing.‰Û
