2016 SUZUKI RM-Z250
Suzuki engineers gave the 2016 RM-Z250 major suspension upgrades, including a new KYB air fork that delivers improved performance, simplified tuning adjustments, and reduced weight compared to the traditional spring fork. The new KYB shock uses improved damping adjusters for tuning rebound, high-speed compression – now adjustable by clicks – and low-speed compression. The adjusters are now positioned on top of the shock for easier adjustments.
The RM-Z250 features a new frame designed to amplify the benefits of the suspension updates. The frame delivers improved control through braking bumps, has a lighter feel, and maintains the RM-Z’s cornering mastery.
The RM-Z250 is powered by a 249cc fuel-injected four-stroke engine with modifications to the fuel mapping that help ease engine starting and improve roll-on power feel. Suzuki’s fuel-injection system is made even better with the additional fuel couplers that give riders fuel-delivery customization that requires no tools. Even with these updates, the 2016 Suzuki RM-Z250’s retail price is $7699, and the bike is available in a Champion Yellow / Solid Black body.
2016 SUZUKI RM-Z450
Refined for 2016, the Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control system (S-HAC) lets the rider choose one of three modes to help launch from the starting gate and earn the holeshot. The unique modes deliver specific performance depending on the rider’s skill and the gate conditions.
The RM-Z450 uses the Showa SFF-Air suspension to deliver reduced weight, increased inner tube diameter, and increased damper rod/piston size. The SFF-Air is made of 3 chambers, and riders easily change the spring rate with an air pump instead of changing out the coil springs.
This proven race winner is packed with features that help novice riders improve, and pro riders stay on top. The 2016 Suzuki RM-Z450 retails for $8749, and comes in Champion Yellow / Solid Black bodywork.
