Rapid City, SD (PRWEB) December 03, 2012
Building on the worldwide success of the original STRIDER bike (over 425,000 sold to date), the new Special Edition Suzuki STRIDER brings toddler bikes into a whole new arena — championship motorcycle racing! After hopping on the Suzuki-inspired STRIDER bike, any toddler will want to tear up the track like their heroes.
If a toddler can walk, the Suzuki STRIDER will get them cruising over dirt, grass, and pavement. The bike is mechanically the same as a standard STRIDER, but is customized with the official Suzuki stickers along with Suzuki’s Ricky Carmichael inspired #4 number plate.
The Suzuki STRIDER bike is a fun alternative for children aged 18 months to five years. It weighs just 6.7 pounds, is easy to control, and features an adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate a growing child. Most importantly, the STRIDER bike teaches children balance and coordination and develops a glittering confidence not seen with tricycles or training wheel bikes.
“The new Suzuki STRIDER is a sweet-looking STRIDER,” says Ryan McFarland, Founder of Strider. “We are always trying to design new STRIDERS with an eye towards our youngest riders and we know Suzuki is synonymous with excellence for many young motocross and motorcycle racing fans. The Suzuki STRIDER gives aspiring riders the look and feel of a true racing champion!”
Ricky Carmichael adds, “I believe the STRIDER bike is one of the best products for young fans and aspiring racers on the market. It teaches balance and riding skills early, and makes off-road riding a lot of fun.”
