RM-Z250

Designed to Win

Fresh off its recent redesign, the 2020 RM-Z250 is ready for battle. The agile RM-Z250 marries the sleek, race-ready appearance of the RM-Z450 with a versatile engine and a responsive chassis to deliver superior performance. Using Suzuki’s “RUN, TURN and STOP” philosophy, factory engineers have made the RM-Z250 an even more formidable competitor.

The RM-Z250 has always set the standard as the best-handling 250 on the track. Now, the 2020 version brings strong, usable power thanks to a centre-port cylinder head. The engine is fed via a dual injector EFI system and an AMA-compliant exhaust that helps boost performance through the entire rev-range.

The twin-spar aluminium frame and hydro-formed swingarm carry a KYB-supplied suspension that includes a coil spring fork and a shock with four-way damping force adjustment. Strong brakes and ergonomically shaped bodywork that helps keep the rider in control as the RM-Z250 carves up the racetrack.

Back in the pits, tuning the new EFI system for maximum performance is easy, thanks to Suzuki’s proven fuel-coupler system. Suzuki’s Winning Balance is again on display with the 2020 RM-Z250, as it again raises its own high standard for cornering performance.
