BREA, Calif. June 28, 2012 – Suzuki is pleased to announce the introduction of the new RM-Z450, RM-Z250, RM85 and RM85L motocross models to the 2013 lineup. These class-leading motorcycles feature advanced technology developed through the success of Suzuki’s motocross racing teams, which have won numerous championships and countless wins in Outdoor Nationals, Supercross, GNCC off-road and World MX1 series.
“The RM-Z450 and RM-Z250 are the most successful fuel-injected motocross models ever made,” said Suzuki Senior Communications Manager Steve Bortolamedi, “The 2013 motocross lineup features new technology designed to dominate on the track and continue the tradition of race-winning performance that is at the core of all Suzuki products. Our commitment to developing these models with innovative technology and race-proven performance is why Champions Choose Suzuki.”
The RM-Z250 features a redesigned chassis and suspension, including the all-new Showa Separate Function front Forks (SFF), which separates the spring and damping functions. The right leg holds the spring, while the left leg incorporates the cartridge assembly to manage damping. With reduced friction, increased absorption performance and lighter weight, the Showa SFF provides remarkably smooth performance over a variety of tracks. The Showa SFF also offers fully adjustable spring preload.
