BBR and Ricky Carmichael have teamed up on a new projectFriday, February 10, 2006 | 9:29 AM
We are going to offer a Limited Edition (1-20) Custom BBR Handcrafted RC Suzuki DRZ110's. We are taking pre-orders on these bikes now, and have already sold a handful before
they have even been announced!
The story behind this partnership is really special to us. BBR has provided play-bikes to Ricky for a number of years. He has always treated us with great respect, and has been a constant source of encouragement, energizing us to continue to build the very best products money can buy. When we spent some time with Ricky at his house this past summer, we realized that Ricky
truly understands this Mini-market. He won't admit it if you ask him, but he is absolutely amazing on these smaller 110's! Anyway, he really liked the 110 size bike we sent him at the beginning of the 2005 season, and took it with him in the Suzuki trailer as he traveled to the races, proudly situating it in his pits so his fans could see it.
Shortly after our visit, Ricky offered his custom built BBR/RC 110 to be auctioned to aid in the relief fund for Hurricane Katrina victims. That's just the kind of person Ricky is. We were pleased to see that the bike brought a lot of attention and some well needed funds to the overall effort.
The idea to offer a limited number of bikes developed from there. Ricky and Scott Taylor (FOX Racing) were instrumental in putting the plan together, and finalizing all of the details.
Each bike will be offered as a Limited Edition model only. Each will be stamped, and have a unique range of custom features including custom machined "RC" logos on the Frame, Swingarm, Engine Cases, etc...Ricky will also personally sign each bike, each invoice, and certificate of authenticity for each of these special motorcycles. Thanks to FOX Racing, each of these BBR/RC bikes will also come with a complete set of FOX gear
(pants, jersey and gloves), and some other special goodies!
VERY IMPORTANT: Continuing with Ricky's dedication to give back to the sport, Ricky and BBR will be donating a portion of the proceeds from each bike sale to Steve Hudson SX/MX Ministries. Ricky has chosen this fantastic group of people to benefit from the sale of these cool bikes. We look forward to working with them as they continue their efforts in our great
Please see the following Specs:
Please note that a very limited number (production #1, #4 and #20) will be offered to proprietary customers, and will come with a hand-fabricated
aluminum tank just like Ricky's works Makita Suzuki!
