What was Suzuki thinking when they came up with those colors? I rode one of those for a weekend in 92 and thought that was a great turning bike

Great find! I think a restored version, all original would be cool only because this is the ugliest bike ever put on a showroom floor. That makes it collectable in my book.

If I remember correctly it doesn't say Suzuki anywhere on that bike. Perhaps ignition cover?

We got all yellow plastics over here.

I was racing in 1993 one of them! Pretty nice handling but less durable than my old trusty CR125.

Ehhh, this will be my main AMA Non-Current Class race bike. While I'm not a fan of the acid graphics I do think they are some fo the best body styles ever. I will make a clean, nice looking race bike out of her. And, just for kicks I'll save all the original plastic and seat if I ever want to put that stuff back on.

Thats killer man! Have fun and keep us posted

I found a 92 that was mxa's pro circuit bike they tested in their magazine so I had no choice but to do a little resto work. Such a great bike. Photo

I agree about the best body style. Its just hard to get past those stock graphics. Are you going with all yellow?
Wasnt Rodney Smith racing Suzuki in Europe when they came out?

So cool! I was too young for a 125/250 but did have the DS80...

Nice... Can't wait to see what you do with it! My brother had a '92 125 and loved it.

I must be the only one that loved the stock 92 RM graphics, rad bike.

It's great saying all these 90s bikes getting some TLC

What a nice ride, one of my favorite bikes of all time.

Same thoughts here Ewan, they're so bad they're good.
Great looking bike as it's the early 90's turned up to 11.

I'm going to leave it somewhat stock looking, just refurb it. I've already found a brand new purple "TUF Racing" seat cover for it.

Trying to finish up a couple other bikes before I tear into this one.

Here's my '91 RM125 I rebuilt a couple years ago, raced it a couple times but I'm pretty fat for a 125.

Hey mate, your RM's look awesome. Man there were some crazy colour schemes back then. ive still got some of my old neon riding gear too, but no chance in fitting into them now ...lol.

Very nice job on that 125. Im toying on getting one too, but i just blew up an 2002 kx125. So im wondering whether its just going to happen again ( im 87kg) or whether that was just a weak engine that i pushed too far???

If anyone has a lead on OEM shroud decals, or a good set of replicas, please let me know. I could use a pair. I was able to source a NOS pair of number plate decals, but no such luck on the shrouds.

Evo-mx.com has 92 replicas. I can vouch for their quality.

Interesting timing on asking about graphics. I just received my graphics from EVO-MX today. Fast shipping, even to USA, and the quality looks awesome.

(I'm wrapping up a 1989 RM125 before I start on this 92 RM250)
