Suzuki RM-Z450 2017 model: #69 Ryo Kano
Ryo customized his Super Moto machine with his preference based on his experience of road racing rider.
He chose RM-Z450 as his base bike because he used to race on Suzuki during his road racing days.
Ryo used to race on Suzuki and "RM-Z450" 2017 is natural choice for him
He put most attention to choose “brake pad” and “tires”. The brake pad is made by "Zcoo" which delivers better control and longer endurance with his past experience of SUGO 6 hours endurance race. Bridgestone tire is selected because Ryo used to have support from them while he was road racer and he decided to use them even not having support from them to repay their favor.
