Suter Legends 500

The Suter Legends MMX 500 was unveiled on 29th September at the Air Force Center in Dusseldorf with many Legends riders and world press in attendance. Images showing a tiny glimpse of what the bike looked like were released a month before

A month long campaign of images showing glimpses of the bike teased the senses, and leaked videos of track testing increased the anticipation!

You too can own one of these bikes – for full information on the bike is available at www.legendsgpbikes.com

 

The Suter 500 project is very ambitious and took an enormous amount of development. To combine almost lost know-how in two-stroke technology with the latest high-tech motorcycle developments, demanded a sophisticated approach.

Suter engineers and technicians did everything imaginable to make this motorcycle meet our high expectations and those around the world. Supported by a state of the art production facility, focus was on Swiss quality and perfect craftsmanship.

The outcome… 195hp | 127kg | >310 km/h
