Double win for 8R in MotoAmerica


The new Suzuki GSX-8R won both MotoAmerica Twins Cup races at Brainerd International Raceway at the weekend, with Rocco Landers twice standing on the top step of the podium.


Landers won both races on his RevZilla/Motul/Vance & Hines machine, but he was also twice joined on the podium by Rossi Moor, who took two third place finishes on his Vision Wheel M4 Ecstar Suzuki GSX-8R.

Landers said of his double win, "It’s amazing where we are now considering where we started on the GSX-8R when we finished P5 in the season opener at Daytona. The bike was new to us, but one thing we did have was a direction, and we’ve just been following the breadcrumbs ever since.


"The GSX-8R has been getting better and better every round, and the team has worked hard. At this point we have a great base setup, we made one small tweak this weekend – and now it’s obviously feeling incredible."
