Fuel injection lands in the MX2 motocross class later this year, with the introduction of the 2010 Suzuki RM-Z250.
Stealing a march in MX1 just two years ago with the launch of the fuel injected RM-Z450 (the first production motocross machine with injection), Suzuki leads the way once again, offering a similar system to MX2 riders for the very first time, with the all-new RM-Z250.
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.
The 2010 RM-Z250 is scheduled to be in authorised Suzuki off-road dealers during the autumn of this year, with a recommended retail price to be announced before its launch.
