SSR Motorsports was established in 2002 to import and distribute powersports equipment. The company offers a variety of vehicles, including pit bikes, ATVs, off-road buggies and scooters that pass through a West Coast distribution center with more than 40,000 sq. ft.

SSR sales manager Michael Leija also boasts of “knowledgeable and experienced staff, and incomparable attention to what both our dealers need and what consumers want.”

Leija continues: “SSR Motorsports is best known for our vast lineup of pit bikes, everything from entry-level to race-ready and race-winning competition models, to sport and utility ATVs, side-by-sides and two-seater buggies. We expanded into the street-legal scooter market in 2006 and, sensing a need for personal vehicles that are stylish, easy to maneuver, fun to use and economical, have expanded our selection of 50-state street-legal scooters to a dozen distinct and highly distinctive models. Best of all in a period where we have all suffered through rapidly rising gas prices, every one of them has recorded gas mileage that, in carefully monitored laboratory testing, regularly exceeds 70 mpg.”
