Suzuki’s 2006 QuadRacer R450 ATV captures numerous “ATV of the Year” awards
Since the launch of the 2006 Suzuki QuadRacer R450, American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) has collected several top honors and “ATV of the Year” Awards for its race-ready, high-performance ATV, proving its significance in the marketplace and on the racetrack.
The new QuadRacer was awarded “2006 Sport ATV of the Year” by ATV Sport Magazine, “2006 Sport ATV of the Year” by ATV Rider Magazine, “2006 ATV of the Year – Sport” by ATV Pathfinder.com, “2006 Best Pure Sport ATV” by All-Terrain Vehicle Magazine and “2007 Sport ATV of the Year” by The ATV Guide.
“We’re thrilled to receive such high honors from top industry publications that truly have a pulse on the ATV market,” said Glenn Hansen, American Suzuki communications manager. “These editors have all come to the same conclusion: the QuadRacer R450 is the best ATV in its class.”
In August, Team Suzuki Yoshimura rider Doug Gust, who played a major role in developing the new race-ready ATV, clinched the championship title in the World PowerSports Association (WPSA) ATV Series Championship, Super Quad 450 Pro Division. Suzuki was also awarded the WPSA Manufacturer’s Award for 2006, largely due to the QuadRacer R450.
“This was a big win for me and Suzuki,” said Doug Gust. “It was an honor to help design this awesome machine. And, to see all of my hard work pay off on the track made it all worthwhile.”
