Suter’s MMX 500 is one of the coolest track weapons on the planet, but the incredible race-only motorcycle has been unavailable in the Untied States until now with the formation of Suter North America. Suter NA was recently formed by Arch Motorcycles – a small bike manufacturer owned in part by known motorcycle aficionado, actor, and all around cool guy Keanu Reeves – and Suter Industries to sell the elite track machine in the United States and Canada.
Thanks to the Arch/Suter team-up, Arch Motorcycle’s KR GT1 sport-oriented cruiser will be sold across the pond in Europe thanks to Suter’s selling infrastructure. Both the KR GT1 and the MMX 500 are exclusive, elite offerings that don’t come cheap. They attract the same certain type of buyer who is passionate about riding and has pockets deep enough to bankroll high-dollar luxury purchases like this.
Unlike Arch, which is a relatively new company, Suter has ample experience producing some of the world’s finest race engines, components, and even complete machines for world class competition. The company is responsible for building several 250cc Moto3 machines around Honda-built engines, and they’ve partnered with Mahindra to deliver Moto3 racers. When Moto2 underwent a rule change resulting in the current Moto2 regulations and engine type, Suter’s MMX2 dominated, and to this day still competes in the second highest level of motorcycle road-racing on earth. Suter Industries also produces some of the finest components for production bikes as well, especially their transmissions.
