Suzuki’s 2006 QuadRacer R450 ATV Captures Numerous “ATV of the Year” Awards

Since the recent 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 ATV MXR of The Year www.ATV.INFO , “2006 Sport ATV of the Year” by ATV Rider Magazine, “2006 ATV of the Year – Sport” by ATV, “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 an industry that has been afraid to go racing and to build high-performance ATVs, Suzuki is pushing the edge of progress. Giving racers a “race-ready” product will drive more people to enjoy this sport and sell more units. For that, we applaud Suzuki and give it this award.”

“Suzuki hit the nail on the head with this one … we think history was made with this model …”
