2018 Suzuki RM-Z U.S. Press Launch: The Media Visit JGRMX

This past week we were fortunate to welcome many of the premiere U.S. motocross journalists for the 2018 Suzuki RM-Z450 and RM-Z250 introduction. The two-day event schedule included riding on the JGRMX outdoor track, a tour through the top secret JGR NASCAR Cup Shop, and the opportunity to ride a JGRMX/Yoshimura full race Suzuki RM-Z250. You might have already checked out the footage from various media channels, but we wanted to show you some of the photos from the intro.

Josh Summey, one of the first JGRMX team riders, came out for the 2018 Suzuki RM-Z450 introduction. The soft-spoken North Carolina native hardly rides motocross anymore, but as you can see, he’s still got it.

Motocross Action magazine managing editor, Daryl Ecklund, spent a lot of time on the 2018 Suzuki RM-Z450. Look for a full review on the bike in an upcoming issue.

Cycle News’ Derek Kelley was uncorking major whips over the step-up double time and again. The kid had talent in spades.

Mark Tilley from Dirt Bike magazine went wide in this corner to spray a wave of roost.

New Product: Honda CRF450R Carbon Fiber Fuel Tank Cover

After months of hard work, the JGRMX retail department is excited to offer a 100%, multi-layer carbon fiber fuel tank cover for the 2017-’18 Honda CRF450R. What separates our cover from anything else on the market? For starters, it is a direct replacement for the OEM/stock plastic piece (other companies are selling a thin carbon covering that sits on top of the stock plastic cover). We also include a 6x35mm titanium upper tank bolt, along with drilled aluminum washer. The JGRMX Honda CRF450R carbon fiber fuel tank cover is a statement maker. Retail is $124.95.

Unadilla National Press Day

There have been reports that the JGRMX retail department is shutting down. That’s not true. We’re full steam ahead (evidenced by the 2017 Honda CRF450R project bike you see above, as well as our new Honda adjustable link arm and carbon fiber tank cover). However, the business plan has been tweaked a bit. Engine services are now handled by Bundy Built Motorsports. John “Bundy” Mitchell has his own shop in Mooresville, North Carolina. JGRMX is no longer offering retail engine services, but instead is recommending that all engine customers give Bundy a call at (704) 654-7288. The JGRMX retail business will continue offering hard parts and apparel. In fact, within the past six months we’ve added a dozen new performance products to the line. Visit www.jgrmx.com to see the whole collection.

Justin Barcia looked mighty comfortable during press day, despite a few rough weeks. First, Barcia took a big digger during practice at Washougal and missed the race. Then, this week he was sideswiped by a car while road cycling. Even so, the tough as nails Suzuki rider is ready for Unadilla on Saturday.

It has been a long six months since Phil Nicoletti lined up to race. The New York native has worked arduously to speed up the healing process. Phil will race on Saturday in the 450 class at Unadilla in front of his hometown crowd. It will be a welcome sight.

Justin Barcia lets ‘er eat through one of the Unadilla turns. The track crew are keeping the dirt graded in case a possible rainstorm hits. That way the water won’t soak too deep into the soil and make for a quagmire. Giggity giggity giggity!

Phil Nicoletti digs in. Thursday’s press ride allowed for two 20-minute riding sessions, along with an hour for media to interview the invited riders.
