The Suzuki team has extended its partnership with Rizla, as the rolling papers brand continues as title sponsor to the Japanese team. The partnership first began in 2006, and is the reason for the distinctive sky blue shade of the Suzuki bikes.
Riders Loris Capirossi and Chris Vermeulen appear to be having an improvement so far for 2009 in comparison with their Sepang and Losail testing performances of a year ago.
"It is very positive news for Suzuki to continue our partnership with Rizla in today's current difficult climate," Team Manager Paul Denning commented. "We have enjoyed a very close relationship, both on and off the track, with Rizla during the past three years and have certainly considered all the representatives of Rizla as part of the team. The new bike has come a long way since last year and we know there is still more to come - Chris and Loris were both very impressed with the GSV-R, but we know there is still a lot of work to do."
Imperial Tobacco Group, the company behind the Rizla brand, also released a statement courtesy of Sales and Marketing Director Graham Blashill: "In difficult economic times, it is even more important to continue to support major brands and excellence in sport. Rizla and Suzuki are global brands committed to providing top quality and innovative products, and we are pleased to be continuing our partnership."
