Key Features

The 249cm³, 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.

The 2014 RM-Z250 is due to arrive in Suzuki showrooms in spring, with pricing to be announced closer to launch.
