About Suter Racing
SuterClutch, The First Choice for many Factory teams in WSBK, MOTOGP, MXGP and now AFT
Over 400 Grand Prix victories and countless World Championship titles with the SuterClutch speak for themselves – engineering and technology at the highest level.
Our roots go back to motorcycle racing era of the 1990s. Eskil Suter was a successful Grand Prix racing driver from 1991 to 1998 in the 250cm3 and 500cm3 class and founded the Suter Racing company in 1996. With the SuterClutch – an entirely new type of clutch – he brought an important technological innovation to the market. The company’s activities were gradually extended to other products, such as high-performance engines, motorcycles and various components, and further consolidated through cooperations and technology partnerships with well-known companies such as Kawasaki or Aprilia. In 2010, Suter Racing won the Moto2 constructors world championship and went on to successfully defend the title in 2011 and 2012. In 2015, Suter Racing launched a four-cylinder two-stroke racing machine with the worldwide exclusive Suter500, which was developed completely in-house.
