November 26, 2007 – La Mirada, CA – Suzuki and Makita, sponsors of the Team Makita Suzuki Supercross and Motocross racing teams, are offering a free Makita driver-drill with the purchase of a Suzuki youth dirt bike or ATV during the holiday season.
The promotion applies to the purchase of eight Suzuki models, including the all-new DR-Z70 with a 67cc four stroke engine. A purchase of any of these youth models includes a free Makita 18 volt Compact Lithium-Ion ½” Driver-Drill Kit (model BDF452HW).
The Makita BDF452HW is unique in both design and performance. The 18V Compact Lithium-Ion battery reaches full charge in just 15 minutes, four times faster than the competition. The Makita-built motor delivers 450 inch-pounds of torque in a compact design weighing only 3.5 lbs, the best power-to-weight ratio of any compact driver-drill on the market. And the driver-drill features a new black and white exterior design, distinguishing this compact model from Makita’s top-of-the-line product in the LXT Series.
“Suzuki is a top name in motorcycles and ATV’s, and we believe the Suzuki rider is also a serious tool user,” said Brent Withey, Makita Brand Manager. “This promotion allows us to get one of our hottest products into the hands of a Suzuki customer.”
Makita’s partnership with Suzuki – as well as Kicker Stereo, Ogio, and Monster Energy – is part of the brand’s ongoing effort to reach the younger, high-energy professional tool user. The two companies have collaborated on various partnerships since 2003, including the Team Makita Suzuki racing team featuring 17-time champion rider Ricky Carmichael.
