From grassroots to the world's best, Honda globally supports all categories of racing. The countless hours of testing and developing new technologies on and off the track are often found in the motorcycles our customers use every day. Whether you are five-time world champion Marc Marquez, twenty-time world trials champion Toni Bou, or are just starting to ride, Honda is proud to build a motorcycle to fit your needs.
If you are thinking about joining the ranks of the many Canadian racers, such as four-time MX champion Colton Facciotti, current flat track champion (DTX Expert Class) Brodie Buchan, or up and coming road racer Jacob Shaw-O'Leary, then now is the perfect time. Whether MX, Flat Track, Enduro, or Road Race, the Honda Red Rider program has something to offer you.
For 2017 Honda is pleased to roll out an all-new addition to the Honda Red Rider program: approved eligible pro racers will be offered a discount of 15% on select new 2017 CRF and CBR models. We have also included a parts allowance to assist these racers with their start up (parts allowance varies based on model purchased). This discount program is available only to registered Honda Red Rider pro racers in MX, Flat Track and Enduro/XCountry (off-road), and Supersport and Superbike (road-race). All interested racers must apply through a participating Honda dealer before March 31st, 2017 to take advantage of the discount program.
In support of Canadian motorcycle racing, Honda is offering a combined total of over $450,000 in available contingency and discount money for both off-road and road-race. This, coupled with competitive new leading edge products, makes it the perfect time to be a Canadian racer. Honda is supporting more classes and more disciplines, and offering more prize money - making it a win for Honda and for the racer.
Additionally, all eligible Honda Red Riders will be offered a discount on select Honda generators to support their team efforts at the track. More details can be found in the Honda Red Rider application package.
We are very excited to see this year's Honda Red Riders out on the track! With an exciting new technology-based 2017 lineup, an all-new discount purchase program, and a more robust contingency offering, we are sure to see some new and returning talent swing their leg over a Honda CRF or CBR this year.
Honda wants to ensure our fan base is supported as well! The Honda GDR Fox riders - four-time MX Champion Colton Facciotti and the newest member of the Honda GDR Fox team, Dylan Wright - will be on hand at the 2017 MX races to sign autographs or just have a track-side chat. They may even have a few surprises for the fans throughout the season! You can also catch Dylan Wright at the Montreal Motorcycle show: Dylan will be around Saturday and Sunday to talk about the 2017 CRF250R and the all-new CRF450R.
