MotoAmerica: Suzuki GSX-8R ready to debut at Daytona

Vance & Hines Motorsports is preparing to hit the track in the MotoAmerica Twins Cup with Rocco Landers, winner of 15 races in the series and winner of the 2020 title when he won an impressive nine rounds.

With two MotoAmerica Junior Cup seals and four local Supersport wins behind him, the 19-year-old will be riding a freshly homologated and RevZilla-sponsored Suzuki GSX-8R that will also accompany him in the Mission King Of The Baggers series.

"I'm excited to compete in two championships. It's going to be a challenging year, but I feel ready," he said hot on the heels of the announcement, aware that he has a bike good enough, though still immature, especially when compared with the more broken-in Yamaha R7 and Aprilia RS 660, to bring home good results.

The GSX-8R will also be entrusted to another youngster, namely Rossi Moor. The 16-year-old will take part in the Twins Cup under the colors of Hammer M4.

The first round will take place on the weekend of March 7-9 at the Daytona circuit.
