American Suzuki is celebrating six national motorcycle and ATV championships with a display at International Motorcycle Show events.

The display includes a replica of Mat Mladin’s American Superbike winning GSX-R1000, Ryan Dungey’s AMA Western Supercross Lites and MX Lites championship-winning RM-Z250 and AMA MX Champion Chad Reed’s RM-Z450.
