Suzuki has been one of the top teams in Motorcycle Grand Prix racing since 1960. The team has won six individual titles along with seven World Manufacturers’ Championships in its wonderful history. Legends like Barry Sheene, Kenny Roberts Jr. and Kevin Schwantz have all been part of this illustrious team.

The success is not limited to the MotoGP level. In fact, with Troy Corser, Suzuki won the 2005 World Superbike Championships as well and with Ben Spies, they have tasted victory at the AMA level. With many titles in the World Endurance and Supercross championships, Suzuki has been somewhat of a powerhouse with a strong desire to win.

The operations are based out of Hamamatsu in Japan whereas the MotoGP headquarters are in Dorset, England. The Rizla Suzuki Superbike team is also head quartered at the same place.

Suzuki recently acquired the sponsorship of Rizla and hence the new name, Rizla Suzuki. Rizla is the world’s number one selling rolling paper. The Rizla Blue colour has become the team colours for Suzuki ever since they first came onto the scene in the ’80s. With an extremely competitive bike, the team will embark on their toughest journey yet, the 2008 MotoGP season.
