FIRST LOOK: 2019 Suzuki RM-Z250 | News

Suzuki Motor Corporation has lifted the covers off its next-generation quarter-litre motocross machine; the 2019 RM-Z250.

Whilst detailed information regarding the technical changes is limited at this time, Suzuki has confirmed that the 2019 RM-Z250 has been developed utilising the exact same product concept and design philosophy from the all-new for 2018 RM-Z450.

At first glance, it is easy to recognise that the styling and bodywork design is unified with the current RM-Z450.

The 2019 RM-Z250 receives a new aluminium frame & swingarm. Front forks return to coil-spring type design with an updated rear shock to match. A larger front brake disc and new front brake pads improve the RM-Z250’s stopping performance.

The updated 249cc engine benefits from improved throttle response and increased overall engine output. The advanced traction management system has evolved to work seamlessly with the rider in order to get maximum power to the ground. Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC) has also been enhanced for MY19. A new exhaust system features changes to the structure and inner material.

Updated Renthal Fatbar aluminium handlebar and new tyres cap-off the list of key changes announced.

Expected Australian arrival and release during the first quarter of 2019.

Comprehensive details regarding technical updates, final specification and pricing will be announced in due course.
