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.

 

Kyle Wyman dominated MotoAmerica Mission King Of The Baggers Qualifying Two (Q2) Saturday morning at Circuit of The Americas, in Austin, Texas. Riding his Screamin’ Eagle Harley-Davidson Road Glide, Wyman lapped the 3.4-mile road course in 2:15.621, outqualifying the next-fastest rider by 1.186 seconds.

Hayden Gillim, the current Championship point leader, was the best of the rest with a 2:16.807 on his Vance & Hines/Mission Foods Harley-Davidson, and Gillim’s teammate James Rispoli claimed the third and final spot on the front row with a 2:16.891.

Tyler O’Hara, the defending Champion, was lucky to walk away from a crash during Q2. O’Hara was exiting Turn One when the chain on his Progressive Insurance/Mission Foods Indian Challenger broke and locked up the rear wheel. O’Hara was flicked off the bike, which then hit him and they slid down the track. O’Hara walked away from the incident without assistance but was not able to continue in the session. He ended up qualifying fifth based on the 2:17.213 he did on Friday.
