Over the last several years, Suzuki has been utilizing the state of the art technology derived from MotoGP racing in the development of new motorcycles. The benefits now expand well beyond engine and chassis refinements to the development of a new high-performance motorcycle oil line: ECSTAR Suzuki Genuine Oil.

 

 

Xavi Fores dominated MotoAmerica Supersport Free Practice One (FP1) Friday morning at Circuit of The Americas (COTA), in Austin, Texas. Riding his Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati Panigale V2, the Spaniard lapped the 3.4-mile course in 2:14.924 to top the field of 36 riders.

Josh Hayes was the best of the rest with a 2:15.603 on his Squid Hunter Racing Yamaha YZF-R6.

Young Gun Tyler Scott was third-fastest with a time of 2:16.733 on his Vision Wheel M4 ECSTAR Suzuki GSX-R750.

Veteran David Anthony’s 2:16.864 on his Wrench Motorcycles Suzuki GSX-R750 ranked him fourth.

Newcomer Torin Collins, an 18-year-old Canadian who normally races in the FIM JuniorGP World Championship, was fifth in his first-ever MotoAmerica Supersport session with a 2:17.076.

Another newcomer to the class, Kayla Yaakov, age 16, was 19th in her debut session on the Tytlers Cycle Racing Kawasaki ZX-6R with a 2:23.559.
