Suzuki has announced it will supply a fleet of V-Strom 1000 marshal bikes for this year’s Welsh Road Race, which takes place from 3-5 August near the Brecon Beacon National Park.

With the V-Strom 1000 specifically selected for its ease of use and practicality, with carrying capacity for the required equipment of event staff, Suzuki has agreed to provide eight machines for the races this summer. The versatile adventure bikes will be used by marshals and medics at the event, which sees road racing return to the region after a 55-year hiatus. The three-day Welsh RR meeting will run on MOD land, using the same roads as the original Eppynt Motorcycle Road Races, staged between 1948 and 1953.



Phillip Morris from the Welsh Road Race organisation, said, “We are extremely grateful to Suzuki for the generosity and support in agreeing to supply machines for the Welsh Road Race in August. The V-Strom 1000s will be used by the six travelling marshals and two event doctors, and they are the perfect motorcycles for the task.”

Suzuki GB marketing manager, Rob Cooper, added, “We’re delighted to be able to offer our support for the event later this year. We have enjoyed great road racing success as a brand, most recently, of course with Michael Dunlop in last year’s Senior TT on the new GSX-R1000. But we also recognise the important roles marshals and doctors play at these events, and by providing a fleet of V-Strom 1000s, we will be equipping them with the right tools to do their jobs.”


Suzuki’s V-Strom 1000 and V-Strom 1000XT are currently available as part of a new low-rate finance offer, which allows customers to choose between a PCP or hire purchase deal, as well as the term of the agreement and an APR to match. For more information, click HERE.
