Posted:

Details on the 2014 Suzuki RM-Z250 and Suzuki RM-Z450 where revealed over the weekend with both the new bikes set to hit Australian show rooms later this year.

Suzuki RM-Z250 New Features
- ECM ignition program has been changed for improved starting performance.
- Stylish two-tone radiator shrouds with new aggressive graphics and yellow side number plates accentuate the RM-Z250's agile looks.

Suzuki RM-Z250 Key Features
The 249cmå_, 4-stroke, fuel-injected, DOHC engine, with a compact and lightweight design, powers the RM-Z250's championship-winning performance. Through feedback from factory racing, the piston and piston pin were developed using Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis.

The advanced battery-less fuel-injection (FI) system features a 44mm throttle body with progressive throttle linkage and a 16-bit computer. The fuel injection system uses a unique capacitor-assisted starting system and is powered by a durable, lightweight magneto-generator after starting.

The aluminium cylinder with Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coating is built for durability, light weight and efficient heat transfer.

The transmission design achieves a smooth yet solid shift feel. The method of fastening the sprocket attains a quick shift feel.

The Separate Function front Fork (SFF) from Showa, separates the spring and damping tasks. The right leg contains the spring, while the left leg incorporates the cartridge assembly to manage damping. This results in reduced friction, increased absorption performance, and weight saving.

The front fork spring pre-load and damping force are fully adjustable, allowing wider range of setting.

Smart chassis design details include footrest brackets shaped to help prevent mud clogging

Race-inspired waved disc rotors and Excel aluminium rims are standard equipment.

Renthal aluminium Fatbar is standard equipment. It has more strength and less vibration than aluminium straight handlebars.

The gripper seat has projecting cross-shaped patterns on its red top surface to provide additional grip.

Two couplers are included for quickly adjusting the fuel setting to suit the riding conditions. One is for a richer fuel setting than the stock setting and the other is for a learner fuel setting. Customer can change the fuel setting to suit the best riding conditions by just connecting either coupler.

A maintenance cap for the fuel pump and a plug for the fuel hose are included for ease of maintenance when the customer removes the fuel tank for maintenance.

The muffler body uses conventional bolts in end cap instead of rivets to simplify the replacement of the glass wool packing in the muffler.

Suzuki RM-Z450 Key Features
449cmå_ 4-stroke liquid-cooled DOHC 4-valve fuel-injected engine developed to deliver phenomenal idle-to-redline thrust. Through feedback from factory racing, the piston, piston pin and connecting-rod are developed with use of Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis.

The piston pin has Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) surface treatment, for less friction and increased durability. Lightweight, battery-less, motocross-use electronic fuel injection system with progressive throttle linkage makes for efficient power delivery.

12-hole fuel injector delivers a fine fuel/air mist for efficient operation. Aluminium cylinder with Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coating, built for durability, light weight and efficient heat transfer.

5-speed transmission enables precise gear shift operation.

Latest version of Separate Function front Fork (SFF-type2) from Showa, separating the spring and damping tasks. The right leg contains the spring, while the left leg incorporates the cartridge assembly to manage damping. It results in reduced friction, increased absorption performance and weight saving.

Front fork spring pre-load is adjustable, allowing wider range of setting.

Slim chassis design makes for a slim riding position, opening up the cockpit to allow the rider to actively take control of the machine.

Showa piggyback-reservoir rear shock with high/low-speed compression damping adjustment, plus rebound damping and spring preload adjustments. The rear shock, working through Suzuki's superlative rising-rate linkage system, provides 310mm of wheel travel, delivering maximum traction.

Race-inspired waved disc rotors and Excel aluminium rims are standard equipment.

Renthal Aluminium Fatbar is standard equipment. It has more strength and less vibration than Aluminium straight handlebars.

Gripper seat, with projected cross-shaped patterns on red-coloured top surface to provide additional grip.

For quick fuel adjustment setting to suit riding condition, two couplers are enclosed. One is for rich and another for lean fuel setting compared to stock setting. Customer can change fuel setting to best suit the riding conditions by just connecting either coupler.

Maintenance cap for fuel pump and plug for fuel hose are enclosed for ease of maintenance when customer removes fuel tank for maintenance purpose.

The muffler body uses conventional bolts, instead of rivets to simplify the replacement of muffler's glass wool packing.
