Your Competitive Edge Just Got That Much Better

The RM-Z250 can make a winner out of anyone, from the recreational racer to the seasoned pro. The latest version of this awesome motocrosser features a wide range of exciting updates.

The RM-Z250 packs a punch with a powerful 249cc, four-stroke engine, lightweight aluminium chassis, Showa suspension and Suzuki-s latest off-road competition technology.

Following in the footsteps of its big brother – the championship-winning RM-Z450 – the Suzuki RM-Z250 was the first, quarter-litre production motocross machine to feature Suzuki-s innovative fuel-injection technology.

The Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system incorporates a 43mm throttle body with progressive throttle linkage and a battery-less fuel pump, giving the RM-Z250 outstanding performance.

The 249cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid cooled DOHC engine is engineered to perform, delivering impressive high-end performance throughout a wide powerband, without compromising low-to-mid range power and torque.

The latest RM-Z250 has updated ECU settings for increased linear acceleration, improved over-rev and revised intake and exhaust timings for lower noise output and meets stricter Motorcycling Australia noise limits of 94db, while maintaining smooth engine output.

An updated transmission improves durability, with the clutch featuring improved lubrication on the centre and counter shaft for enhanced feel and response.

The RM-Z250-s radiator hose routing has been changed for more efficient cooling and the kick starting arm has been revised for improved starts.

Developed in competition, a high-strength, twin-spar aluminium alloy frame gives riders agile handling, with the chassis and suspension system offering superior cornering and tighter line selection.

The RM-Z250 features updated wiring harness routing and a convenient fuel line cap, making regular maintenance a breeze.

More impressive than ever imagined, the RM-Z250 continues to take the four-stroke world by storm!
