BREA, Calif. - Suzuki has announced a series of customer appreciation promotions to celebrate its 50th anniversary in the U.S., including prize giveaways, a MotoGP event and a way for Suzuki fans to share their stories.

Suzuki officially entered the U.S. market on Aug. 16, 1963. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of this date, the company will be offering customers a monthly opportunity to win a variety of prizes.

Every other month between January and December, the grand prize for the monthly contest will be a new 2013 Suzuki motorcycle or ATV. Other prizes include Genuine Suzuki Accessories. The first prize, which will be offered on Feb. 16, is a new 2013 RM-Z450.

On Aug. 16, Suzuki will host a customer appreciation event during the Indianapolis MotoGP race weekend.

“When Suzuki entered the U.S. market in 1963, customers first experienced the quality, performance value and fun of our products,” said Steve Bortolamedi, American Suzuki’s senior communications manager. “We want to commemorate the past five decades of Suzuki in the U.S. market by offering these incredible prizes to our customers to extend our appreciation for their support.”

To enter the contest, customers can get a contest code from their local dealer that can be entered at Suzuki’s Facebook page for a chance to win.

In addition to the 50th Anniversary contest giveaway, Suzuki is celebrating five decades of Suzuki owners with the “Share Your Suzuki Story” campaign, which encourages customers to submit photos and stories of their past experiences owning a Suzuki.

Further details on Suzuki’s 50th Anniversary contests and “Share Your Suzuki Story” campaign are available at Suzuki’s Facebook page.
