    Key Features
    New graphics complete the 2011 package. In addition, the number plates have a black background to conform to rules for competition numbers.

    For 2011, the RM-Z250 meets stricter AMA noise limit (94db) while keeping smooth engine output.

    Engine Features
    The RM-Z is powered by a compact and lightweight 249cc, fuel-injected, DOHC, titanium four-valve, semi-dry-sump, four-stroke engine. Its advanced, battery-less fuel-injection (FI) system, features a 44mm throttle body with progressive throttle linkage and a 16-bit computer.

    The FI system uses a unique capacitor-assisted starting system, and is powered by a durable, lightweight magneto-generator after starting.

    The engine's aluminum cylinder is treated with Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coating. The cylinder is built for durability, is light weight and the coating allows for efficient heat transfer.

    A sturdy connecting rod and mirror finishing permits a stunning 13,500-rpm maximum engine speed.

    Transmission Features
    A 5-speed transmission provides extra flexibility, offering gear ratios suited for various terrains and conditions.

    Chassis Features
    Inverted twin chamber Showa 47mm forks and Showa piggyback shock designed with emphasis on smooth shock absorption and ample bottoming resistance. Tuned to offer superb handling for a wide range of riders, the suspension delivers excellent traction without sacrificing quick-turning ability.

    The RM-Z250 features a twin-spar aluminum frame and aluminum swingarm developed and refined for a highly optimized balance between rigidity and superb high-speed traction.

    Smart chassis design details include footpeg brackets shaped to help prevent mud from clogging.

    Radiator louvers (for the twin side-mounted aluminum-alloy radiators) are joined to the outer bodywork to add strength without adding weight.

    Race-inspired brake disc rotors offer enhanced cooling performance and efficient mud slinging.

    High-quality Renthal handlebars featuring a tapered design are fixed to the rubber mounted triple clamp.

    A gripper seat, with projected cross-shaped patterns on the top surface, provide additional grip.
