The Suzuki RM-Z250 dirt bike has come a long way since its joint conception with Kawasaki back in 2004. Now solely a Suzuki product, the RM-Z250 has become a known motocross race-winner in the hands of riders like Ryan Dungey. Suzuki was the first Japanese OEM to introduce production fuel injection on its motocross bike, the Suzuki RM-Z450, and it is also the first to do it with the 250F division. The 2010 Suzuki RM-Z250 will be equipped with battery-less EFI for the first time to fuel the liquid-cooled, DOHC 4-stroke Single.
The Suzuki RM-Z250 likes to fly with a nimble, light feel in the air and good suspension for returning to earth.
Suzuki has always been known for producing bikes with razor handling, and the RM-Z250 adheres to that formula. Nimble and quick, holding the inside line is its forte thanks to a twin-spar aluminum chassis and Showa suspension on the new models. The Suzuki RM-Z250 has finished as high as second place in our annual 250F Motocross Shootouts, but the overall class title has remained elusive for the RM-Z250. However, it shows up as one of our riders’ favorite bikes to spin laps on which goes to show that the Suzuki RM-Z250 always has plenty to like about it. Factory race teams like Rockstar Makita Suzuki are in the title hunt with the RM-Z250 at every race series including motocross and supercross.
