Suzuki launch ultra-adjustable RM-Z250

Suzuki GB unveiled their most adjustable motocross machine ever today, as the all-new fuel-injected RM-Z250 was launched to show-goers at the International Motorcycle & Scooter Show at the NEC in Birmingham.

Launched to press at the Desertmartin track in Northern Ireland just a few days earlier, the new 250 made its NEC show debut as part of the firms 2010 new model press conference.

Following in the footsteps of its larger sibling, the RM-Z450, which became the first production motocross machine with fuel injection, the 250 goes one step further with engine mapping plugs as standard, designed to offer optimum performance for every riding condition.

Derived from its larger capacity sibling, the new 250’s battery-less fuel system boasts a 43mm throttle-body, with a progressive throttle linkage and 16-bit computer, powered by a durable, lightweight magneto-generator. Combined with revised cam timing, uprated intake ports and a stronger connecting rod (boosting maximum engine speed to 13,500rpm), the new RM-Z offers even more power and torque than before.

And it’s not just the engine that’s seen significant updates either, as the RM-Z250’s twin-spar aluminium alloy frame has seen redesign, most notably with an increase in lower frame rail wall thickness (up from 2.5mm to 3mm), while the side rails are now shallower. Controlling the heightened power, is a new swingarm, increasing rigidity thanks to an improved centre brace that concentrates the mass for an enhanced suspension action, offering greater traction.

With a new, sharper look courtesy of revised plastics which offer a slimmer feel and race-ready black number boards as standard, the 2010 RM-Z250 offers a factory ride straight from the dealer.
