BREA, Calif. Jan 16, 2013 – Suzuki is pleased to announce the kickoff of a series of customer appreciation promotions to celebrate their 50th anniversary in the U.S. market.
Suzuki officially entered the U.S. market on August 16, 1963. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this historic date, Suzuki will be offering customers the opportunity to win a variety of prizes, including motorcycles, ATVs, and Genuine Suzuki Accessories every month until the August 16 anniversary date.
On August 16, Suzuki will host a customer appreciation event during the Indianapolis MotoGP race weekend, to commemorate this historic achievement.
“When Suzuki entered the U.S. market in 1963, customers first experienced the quality, performance value and fun of our products,” said American Suzuki Senior Communications Manager Steve Bortolamedi. “We want to commemorate the past five decades of Suzuki in the U.S. market by offering these incredible prizes to our customers to extend our appreciation for their support.”
To enter the contest, customers can get a contest code from their local dealer that can be entered at Suzuki’s Facebook page for a chance to win.
Every other month between January and December, the grand prize for each monthly contest will be a new 2013 Suzuki motorcycle or ATV. Other prizes include Genuine Suzuki Accessories. The first prize, which will be offered on February 16, is a new 2013 RM-Z450.
In addition to the 50th Anniversary contest giveaway, Suzuki is celebrating five decades of Suzuki owners with the “Share Your Suzuki Story” campaign, which encourages customers to submit photos and stories of their past experiences owning a Suzuki to share their history with the brand.
