The first details of the 2019 Suzuki RM-Z250 have been released and it has a raft of upgrades from the current model, including a brand-new chassis and an uprated engine.
Taking inspiration from the recently released Suzuki RM-Z450, the MX2 machine (the second tier of motocross) gets improved rigidity from a new frame and swingarm, and sharpened handling from a new rear shock and updated forks.
The heavily updated engine will produce more power and torque than the previous model, and you’ll get the latest version of Suzuki’s Holeshot Assist Control as well as traction management and revised gearing.
All of this new power and torque means the new RM-Z250 needs plenty of stopping power too, which comes courtesy of a new front brake with a bigger disc and enhanced grip from new Dunlop tyres.
The new bike is expected in early 2019, we’ll bring you more details as they are released.
