If we had to say why it is that Suzuki dirt bikes are attracting attention we might link it to their performance everywhere they are seen or the fame associated with the Suzuki name and TV racing or trials.
However, there is more to it than that. Graphics kits are being produced resulting in dirt bikes looking more striking and noticeable than ever before. Riders are choosing to buy kits of, for example, Suzuki stickers, and then applying them to their machines. So, with stickers in our minds along with the name Suzuki, let us consider all the reasons why people are so attracted to the prospect of owning such a dirt bike and its associated decals.
The Suzuki RM-Z has become associated with the history of AMA Motocross. This is due to the bike’s superior cornering, the nimbleness of its handling, and its extra power. This is not to mention the fact that these bikes possess a durability that allows for them to be ridden in whatever style is required. Suzuki makes motocross, dual-sport bikes, and trail bikes to cater to the variations sought by different riders. All of them will want their bikes to have the performance as well as the look that the professionally produced stickers provide. These are not temporary stickers or graphics but permanent ones that can cope with the demands of the bike’s activities.
There is no doubt that the graphics kits are making dirt bikes popular. Riders do not just want to neglect their bike’s look because it ends up muddy anyway, they want a look that shows everyone they mean business. That they have a hobby they are not just playing at but serious about.
We cannot forget a bike’s performance, of course, but stickers displaying a rider’s chosen graphics go a long way to us feeling like we have the kind of machine under our legs that can achieve the results we are looking for.
What’s in a Name?
Brand names are important no matter what field we are in. They automatically give the impression that something is of quality. It is the same with dirt bikes. If you turn up in a Honda, then everyone will know that you have an awareness of the best bikes on the market and that you have invested in one to give the best performance that you possibly can.
The graphics kits, as mentioned above, will instantly identify your dirt bike as Honda, if that is your chosen make, and be in sync with the performance expected. We can feel proud to be riding it and displaying the name and colours associated with owning that kind of bike. There seems little point in hiding that we have the best equipment for the job. We can then create that feeling where others are in awe of us. It will almost give them a sense of defeat before they begin and immediately give us the competitive edge when competing against others in the sport of dirt biking, off-road riding, or motocross. Whatever tournament organisers or hobbyists choose to call it.
So, it is not difficult to see why some names in bikes attract attention. They already have a reputation to be in awe of. Then there is a means of displaying that fame through graphics and stickers that can be applied to dirt bikes of any age to emphasise the fact. Names are important for recognition, whether it is of a particular rider or a particular make or model of bike. There is psychology here that cannot be ignored. We all need that incentive to do well and that extra recognition of the machine underneath us is sure to achieve that.
Therefore, it just remains to say that if we have not got the right stickers on our dirt bike or still have tired-looking stickers, then we should consider renewing or replacing them so that our dirt bike can look how it needs to so that it reflects the kind of performance it is capable of.
