The Suzuki Asian Challenge (SAC), which was established in 2015, is now entering its third season running within the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship. The underbone-frame, Suzuki Satria F150, was the machine used for SAC in its first two years, and this year, SAC proudly announces that the new Suzuki GSX-R150 will be used for the series.

SAC is produced by Yukio Kagayama, geared to train young Asian riders to one day become a world-class rider. SAC not only trains the riders on-track, but off-track too, so that the riders grow maturely, both as a racing rider, but also as a human being.

The new GSX-R150 is the newest addition by Suzuki to the Asian market. It is a sports production bike and the riders will be racing on a more sporty bike than the underbones. The GSX-R150 uses a backbone frame. The street version has a size of 2020mm X 700mm X 1,075mm, with a wheelbase of 1300mm. The weight is 131kg. The engine is 147.3cc with an maximum horsepower of 14.1kW. SAC will be modifying this base machine geared towards racing.

SAC will field 16 riders from nine countries; namely Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, Sri Lanka, Nepal, India and Japan.

The official test, where it will be the debut for the GSX-R150 is currently in progress at Johor Circuit in Malaysia and the season-opener at the same circuit will run from March 31-April 2.
