Arch Motorcycle Company has been named the exclusive North America importer and distributor of Swiss company Suter Industries’ racing motorcycles. Arch has formed a separate division within its company named Suter North America, which will specialize in the sales, set-up and technical support of the Suter MMX 500, MMX 2 Moto2 and other Suter motorcycles.
Arch Co-Founder Keanu Reeves said, “It is a real honor for Arch to have the unique opportunity to bring the Suter MMX 500 and Moto2 motorcycles here to North America and conversely, for Suter to be our Arch representative over in Europe. Like Arch, Suter makes motorcycles for riders who appreciate an incredible riding experience. Both of our companies are committed to excellence in everything we do. I’m very excited about the potential for what we can create together moving forward.”
Jointly, Suter Industries has been appointed by Arch Motorcycle as their European importer and distributor. The celebrated Swiss company will take the lead in the process to create a Euro-4 compliant Arch KRGT-1 motorcycle and lend its engineering resources as Arch develops future models and product.
Suter CEO Maurizio Bäumle commented, “We at Suter are pleased and proud to have found an enthusiastic partner in Arch Motorcycle Company. 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.”
Suter Industries is an engineering company founded in 1996 by Eskil Suter. The company has won three consecutive manufacturers championships in the Moto2 class (2010, 2011, and 2012). 2012 also marked the first year a young Marc Marquez won the Moto2 Championship for Suter. In mid-2015, Suter remade history by releasing an epic, two-stroke racing marvel, the MMX500.
Arch Motorcycle Company was co-founded in 2012 by Gard Hollinger and Keanu Reeves with the goal of creating the ultimate American performance cruiser. Their inaugural model, the KRGT-1 was released in 2015 and sold all over the world. Arch Motorcycle Company plans to launch additional models to complement the KRGT-1 later this year.
