2017 Suzuki RM-Zs Break Cover

Posted:

The Suzuki RM-Z motocross line-up continues to deliver the class-leading performance that has made them one of the most successful series of motocross bikes ever produced.

The 2017 iterations boast new black anodized rims and triple clamps, yellow-top seat cover, yellow rear fender, black side plates and all-new graphics.

The 2017 RM-Z range leads the charge to the top step of the podium with their advanced factory inspired engines, suspension and electronics packages.

The 449cc DOHC powerplant packs the perfect combination of broad useable torque and arm-stretching horsepower for the modern racer. Through feedback from the factory race teams, the piston, piston pin and connecting-rod have been developed with the use of Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis, the piston pin is also Diamond-Like-Carbon (DLC) coated for less friction and increased durability.

The 49mm Showa SFF-Air TAC fork that was once a factory-only option is now available to RM-Z450 riders. It consists of 3 air chambers that can be easily adjusted by using a hand-held air pump to quickly optimise the bike to the conditions, just like setting tyre pressures.

After being overhauled for MY16, the RM-Z250 retains its phenomenal 249cc DOHC engine; best known for its stellar mid-range power and over-rev. The highly praised KYB PSF2 front forks and shock also return for 2017 offering infinite tuning adjustability and an overall confidence inspiring feel.
The 2017 RM-Z250 and RM-Z450 are also equipped with class leading technology such as the Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC) system, which helps riders achieve better launches from the starting gate for an early lead. There are three modes riders can choose for the best option per their skill level and starting conditions.

Riders can adjust the engine performance to suit varied track conditions. By plugging in either of two additional fuel-setting couplers, riders can opt for a richer-than-stock or leaner-than-stock fuel setting to make the most of any riding conditions. Included with the bike, these couplers can be easily plugged in trackside.

Fitted as standard equipment, the top-shelf Renthal aluminium Fatbar offers more strength and less vibration than standard size aluminium handlebars.

Excel aluminium rims are made specifically to withstand rugged racing environments, including Supercross, outdoor Motocross and off-road conditions. The aluminium-alloy black anodized rims are designed and shaped to stay strong and to maintain their good looks.

The 2017 RM-Z450 will be available from dealership floors later this month, for an un-changed recommended price of $10,990.

The 2017 RM-Z250 is due to arrive in dealerships in September, for an un-changed recommended price of $9,990.

To celebrate the launch of the 2017 models, Suzuki is offering customers a bonus Race Pack; consisting of Genuine Suzuki: Worx Bike Stand, bike service kit, spare air filter and replacement front and rear brake pad sets on every 2017 RM-Z purchased before 30th September, 2016.
