SuzukiBREA, Calif.

“We feel right at home with the staff and the members of the ABA,” said Mel Harris, Vice President of American Suzuki’s motorcycle and ATV division. “This enthusiastic family of athletes thrives on competition and the need for top-performing products. It’s the same passion that drives our motorcycle and ATV racers, and it makes this partnership a natural for Suzuki.”

Suzuki will have a large presence at every ABA BMX National event, and has scheduled display advertising in ABA’s American BMXer publication as part of its sponsorship. The ABA will use Suzuki ATVs exclusively when constructing and grooming the individual race facilities.
