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.
James Rispoli won the wild MotoAmerica Mission King Of The Baggers Race Two Sunday at Circuit of The Americas (COTA), in Austin, Texas. Rispoli took the lead on lap four of six and rode his Vance & Hines/Mission Foods Harley-Davidson Road Glide to the victory.
Rispoli’s teammate Hayden Gillim said his bike lost power during the race, but he was able to hold on and get second, which moved him into the Championship point lead heading into the final round.
Kyle Ohnsorg earned his first MotoAmerica podium finish with third place on his Roland Sands Design Indian Challenger.
Ohnsorg’s teammate Bobby Fong was leading the race on lap four when he pulled off with a mechanical problem.
Before that, Tyler O’Hara was leading the race until he started experiencing problems with his Progressive Insurance/Mission Foods Indian Challenger and eventually retired.
Kyle Wyman, the Championship point leader coming into the weekend, came together with Ohnsorg on the first lap and crashed. Wyman was able to pick up his Screamin’ Eagle Harley-Davidson Road Glide and continue to salvage a ninth-place finish.
Wyman’s teammate and brother Travis Wyman was having one of his best weekends of the year and was running second on the final lap when he crashed. Travis Wyman was able to remount and finish 10th.
