In this stage of the World Championship alongside all The other 500cc class american main Pilots  there will be also Kevin Schwantz, a brand ambassador of Suzuki and the only great rider to become a 500cc World Champion with a Suzuki in 1993.

Nicknamed “kamikaze pilot” for his aggressive and tightrope style, he did not possess a superfine technique but he made up for this lack with agility, grip and braking, specialty in which he was a teacher.

Kevin Schwantz besides being the man image of Suzuki has been testimonial for several years of the brand Rudy Project.
