That goes without saying, right?

I almost forgot to mention the 2021.5 Barry Carsten Factory Edition with billet clamps, yellow wheels and dual yosh slip-ons

I believe it will have an onboard Alexa app too. "Alexa, less bottom end torque... and add rear fender to my shopping list"

Don't forget the "going out of business" edition: a 2008 model with BNG, since they can't afford to utilize the newer 2018 molds.

Spent the last year Hamamatsu Way,
Couldn't get much older.
Out to pasture, think its safe to say,
Graphics slightly bolder.

And we don't need the fanbois crying cuz the shock is bad
The Hamamatsu Way, is cheaper than those F.E. lads

I heard from a pretty good source that there were going to be some changes but they did not say to which bike for 2021. But if the bike was the same, why the delay in announcing anything? Maybe to get ride of 2020 inventory ?
Only time will tell. There has to be a reason they built a new factory a few years back?

I know it may sound crazy to some , as I've mentioned this a few times over the years. I was a big Kawi guy ( 2 strokes and 4 strokes ). Then switched on to the Husky 2 strokes.........But.....

One of the coolest rides I ever had on a 450 , was a bone stock 2011 RMZ 450. Suspension was done , and that was all. That bike cornered like it was on velcro ( It went exactly where I pointed it ). Motor was super smooth and it just felt awesome under me. I damn near sold my Kawi , to get the RMZ. Something about them Suzuki's just feel super comfortable to ride. At least for me.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Since Suzuki’s customarily have a little less HP than other brands of the same size, and as so many folks love the 350’s, Suzuki has decided to up the anty and build a 370. They should be hitting the showrooms next month.

Edit: It was a joke you whiney downvoters. Sheesh. Everyone takes shit so seriously these days.
Oh, and I bleed yellow. Been on Zooks since the 80's.

Same experience on the 2014 I had. The bike was just so dialed.

Suzuki hasn't done R&D since Alpinestars was selling vectors.

You were doing well until the reverse engine part. Apparently that equates to nearly a decade of chassis design setback.

There is no good source other than bs rumours. Nobody had info on the Suzuki as well as the yamaha before seeing them on pictures.
It's only speculations!
Suzuki has to release two new bikes with electric start so yes probably 2022 or 2023 but please stop making rumours that are just pure speculations.
Or tell your sources, not like a friend that knows a friend, that knows an engineer in japan lol like our dear gillboy....

Prediction: the next "change" from Suzuki will be developing just a center port head for the 450 (slim chance it's the whole motor) and putting the 450 motor in the current 250 chassis.

Then, unless something changes, that's the last RMZ450.

Suzuki doesn't even need to make major changes. It is a competitive platform. Changes I would prefer to see over any engine changes to the 450:

Use suspension components from 250 on both models. This stuff is already considered industry best on other makes and is, presumably, a cheaper range than the 450 Showa stuff.

Which leads to, Get base suspension settings in realm with reality:. .5 kg/mm fork springs is insane on a 250! These bikes are so close to broadly appealing in stock form for most riders, except for really bad base settings. If you are going to make an everyman bike, aim it for a middle-road person. If you have any questions, pay pretty much any suspension tuner for the answer to this: "What is your setting for a 165 lb B rider"

Roll the "Factory Rebates" into the MSRP: Get that $2.5K-$3k cheaper sticker front and center, rather than supplied through smoke and mirrors.

That's just a starting point, requires no major changes, costs basically nothing (or is cheaper than whatever they are doing), and makes these bikes a whole lot more desirable from the get go.
