If you are a fan of two-stroke motorcycles, then the Suter MMX 500 surely ranks highly on your list of bikes to have in your dream garage.
And now for American motorcycle enthusiasts, owning a Suter MMX 500 just got easier, as the Arch Motorcycle Company has been named the exclusive importer for Suter’s motorcycle business.
Establishing Suter North America in the process, Arch will begin selling these 195 horsepower / 280 lbs (wet) machines to the American public…assuming you can afford the 120,000 CHF (~$125,000 USD) price tag.
Similarly, Suter will begin selling Arch Motorcycle’s power cruiser in Europe, which means the two brands are joining forces to expand their relevant markets.
While the Arch KRGT-1 is the sole model in the American brand’s arsenal for now, Suter is going to help Arch develop new future models, as well as make the KRGT-1 Euro4 compliant.
For riding enthusiasts, Suter has a suite of bikes to chose from, like the Suter MMX 500 two-stroke GP bike, the Suter MMX1 MotoGP race bike, the Suter MMX 2 Moto2 bike, and the Suter MMX3 Moto3 race bike.
“We at Suter are pleased and proud to have found an enthusiastic partner in Arch Motorcycle Company,” said Suter CEO Maurizio Bäumle. “Both our companies share the same vision in regards to technical perfection, but I think it is our mutual passion for riding that ultimately makes this a perfect partnership.”
“Whether out on the road or on the track, both Arch and Suter endeavor to capture the joy of riding in all our motorcycles. We look forward to working alongside Arch to make our bikes the best they can possibly be.”
“The undisputed technical prowess Suter brings in precision motorcycle manufacturing is what really excites us about working together,” added Gard Hollinger, Arch co-founder and designer.
“We’re extremely excited about the engineering resources that Suter brings to the table, which really are unparalleled and will be a great asset to our Arch team as we continue to develop some of the best motorcycles in the world.”
