2016 Suzuki RM-Z450

The 2016 Suzuki RM-Z450 returns with the features that make it a winner in motocross and Supercross competition worldwide. This choice of champions is powered by a 449cc liquid-cooled four-stroke engine featuring Suzuki fuel injection designed especially for motocross-use. The lightweight, battery-less, electronic fuel-injection system with progressive throttle linkage makes for efficient power delivery. A 12-hole fuel injector delivers a fine fuel/air mist for efficient operation. Racers can choose from different fuel couplers included with the bike to easily tune the system’s fuel mapping trackside, no tools needed.

Refined for 2016, the Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control system (S-HAC) lets the rider choose one of three modes to help launch from the starting gate and earn the holeshot. The unique modes deliver specific performance depending on the rider’s skill and the gate conditions.

The RM-Z450 uses the Showa SFF-Air suspension to deliver reduced weight, increased inner tube diameter, and increased damper rod/piston size. The SFF-Air is made of 3 chambers, and riders easily change the spring rate with an air pump instead of changing out the coil springs.

This proven race winner is packed with features that help novice riders improve, and pro riders stay on top. The 2016 Suzuki RM-Z450 retails for $8,749, and comes in Champion Yellow / Solid Black bodywork.
