SATO RACING is the international brand identity for BABY FACE Inc. Founded in Osaka, Japan in the 1980's by Katsuhiko 'Babyface' Sato, BABY FACE started out building race bikes. By the late-'90's the company was making a name for itself fabricating ultra-lightweight titanium exhaust systems and other specialized racing parts. Sensing there would be strong demand for the company's premium quality racing parts outside of Japan, Mr. Sato decided it was time to expand internationally. By 2001, a US distribution warehouse was established in California, and exhaust systems made by his company were being regularly imported and sold under a new brand name, SATO RACING.
