From a press release issued by Team Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki:

UNION GROVE, WI (December 6, 2011) - The Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki team is pleased to announce that a deal has been made to have all three of the 2012 AMA Pro Racing team riders be outfitted in Shoei Helmets. Cory West, Benny Solis, & Jake Lewis will all be wearing the latest available helmets from Shoei while competing in the 2012 AMA Pro Racing Daytona SportBike and SuperSport championships. 

Patrick Houlihan - Shoei Safety Helmet Corp.
“Benny Solis has been a Shoei rider for a few years now, and we started working with Cory West at the beginning of the 2011 season. Both riders have been a pleasure to work with and have proven their talent time and time again. Add the incredible amateur career of Jake Lewis, and the professionalism and hunger of the Vesrah Suzuki squad, and we couldn't be more excited to be working with the team next year.”

Mark Junge - Team Owner Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki
“I started using Shoei Helmets personally in 1995 and have worn them for the majority of my racing career. I trust the protection offered in Shoei Helmets and I am pleased that all 3 of my riders will be wearing them for 2012.”

“I'm happy to be continuing my relationship with Shoei for the 2012 season. When I first tried the Shoei on I knew it was the perfect helmet for me and I have yet to be disappointed in any way. In our sport safety is crucial, and the most important piece of safety equipment is your helmet. With Shoei Helmets I know I'm protected and that allows me to focus on my job 100%.”

Benny Solis - Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki #35
“Shoei Helmets are the best helmets I have ever worn. Since 2008 I have been running Shoei Helmets and I have never had an issue with vision or fogging. I think they are the perfect helmet so I am stoked that the team is going to be running them.”

Jake Lewis - Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki #85
“I'm really looking forward to wearing Shoei Helmets next year in my first season as a pro! They are very comfortable and provide really good safety, which is important in our sport. I cannot thank Bruce Porter and Arai enough for all their support throughout my whole amateur career. I'm looking forward to the 2012 season and working with the crew at Shoei! It should be a successful and really good season with the RidersDiscount Vesrah Suzuki team.”

Breeann Poland – Team Manager Riders Discount Vesrah Suzuki
“Once again Shoei has gone over and beyond to ensure all the riders underneath the RidersDiscount Vesrah Suzuki tent are protected and taken care of. Both Mark Junge and myself have had a long relationship with Shoei Helmets that we both look forward to continuing in the future!”
