Whilst competing in the 250cc World Championships, Eskil Suter founded Suter Racing Technology. Over the years, his company has developed a reputation for excellence in motorcycle chassis design with work in MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3, WSBK, MXGP, and S1GP.
Built specifically by Suter to compete in Moto2 from 2010-2018, the MMX2 won three straight Constructors World Championships (2010-2012). Marc Marquez won the Moto2 rider’s championship aboard a Suter in 2012, as well.
This prototype combines Yamaha OEM parts with impressive aftermarket components and Suter’s know-how. The chassis and swingarm are fully-adjustable Suter units, while the suspension is comprised of Yamaha R6 forks in Suter triple clamps up front and an Ohlins shock in the rear.
Thanks to a titanium exhaust system with carbon fiber muffler, Suter claims that this motor produces 130 horsepower on 110 octane (fuel tank is 3.7 gallons), enough to propel the bike to a top speed of 165 miles per hour.
Offered at a tremendous discount compared to the non-prototype Suter MMX2s, this bike presents an interesting opportunity that blends a reliable drivetrain with top-notch components and a dash of exclusivity.
