Every Vision Wheel M4 ECSTAR Suzuki GSX-R has been fitted with R&G engine covers, radiator screens, and chain guards, among other R&G products, to help protect the racebikes in the event of a crash.

R&G Managing Director Simon Hughes said, “After an incredible season in 2021 which saw them secure the MotoAmerica Supersport title, we were really excited to be back sponsoring Team Hammer again for 2022 as they compete in the Superbike and Supersport classes. The MotoAmerica series continues to go from strength to strength, so this is a fantastic opportunity for us to continue to expand our reach in racing paddocks across the globe.”

R&G utilizes high-density polyethylene, aircraft- grade metals and ABS plastic in its products range, which also include sliders, exhaust and tank protectors, side stands, and crash bars. Designed via the innovative use of 3D scanning and CNC machining, R&G ensures the perfect fit for the more than 50,000 products it produces for more than 400 bike models.

“We rely on R&G’s line of products to protect the vital parts of our motorcycles during a crash and help keep our riders in the race,” said Team Hammer’s Chris Ulrich. “We had instances in the 2021 season when we earned points after a crash and this was absolutely critical in our MotoAmerica Supersport Championship run.”
