SATO RACING Rear Sets were born from extensive development and testing, not only on the street but also in World GP and All Japan Road Race (Super Bike, GP250, GP125, ST600) for more than 15 seasons. In recent years the company has also been heavily involved in developing parts for teams competing in the Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race. (Last year a majority of the teams in the race were using at least some of our parts!)
Many of the specialized Rear Sets developed specifically for the Suzuka 8 Hours have made it into production nearly unchanged as our Race Concept series of Rear Sets. But our standard (‘street’ friendly) Rear Sets and other parts have also benefited greatly from the lessons learned from our development for this grueling race.
