First Look: 2023 Suzuki Moto and Off-Road Bikes

VitalMX: No changes yet again for 2023, but Suzuki did sweeten the deal with some extras. Now, when you buy a 2023 RM-Z250 or 450, you get a full Yosh system and rmARMY graphics kit. 


Off-Road

DR-Z125L

Here comes the DR-Z125L to make sure young riders and riders smaller in stature can tackle the dirt. Larger 19-inch front and 16-inch rear tires, as well as a front disc brake, deliver big bike performance to a size-appropriate motorcycle. The DR-Z125L is the perfect platform to build essential riding skills upon, thanks to a true manual clutch and a smooth-shifting five-speed transmission that lets riders develop these skills as they advance within the sport of motorcycling. Styled to mirror Suzuki’s championship-winning RM-Z and RMX models, this DR-Z arrives with a race-oriented look, while the sharp handling and strong low-end and mid-range power provide the get-up-and-go that defines Suzuki off-road bikes. The bike’s race-ready looks prove you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, because the DR-Z125L is an unassuming, easy-to-ride package packed with loads of fun. Bright Champion Yellow bodywork includes complimentary blue, black, and red race-inspired graphics.

Motocross

RM-Z450

The 2023 RM-Z450 remains the champion’s choice, as its sleek, race-ready appearance, strong engine, and nimble chassis continue the Suzuki tradition of extraordinarily precise handling and engaging performance. 

The RM-Z450 epitomizes Suzuki’s Winning Balance philosophy of optimizing “RUN, TURN, and STOP” with strong brakes for controlled stopping power, a widespread engine muscle with high peak power, and a strong, light, and more nimble chassis that remains the class standard for cornering performance. 

Tuning the electronic fuel injection and ignition systems for maximum performance is easy thanks to Suzuki’s smartphone-based MX-Tuner or proven fuel-coupler system that is included with each 2023 RM-Z450.

The Champion Yellow bodywork is enhanced with a graphics package that features distinctive striping and Suzuki logos.

RM-Z250

The choice of wise professionals and privateers everywhere, the 2023 RM-Z250 is ready for battle. The agile RM-Z250 combines the sleek, race-ready appearance of the RM-Z450 with a versatile engine and responsive chassis to deliver superior performance. Using Suzuki’s “RUN, TURN, and STOP” philosophy, factory engineers have made the RM-Z250 a formidable competitor. 

The RM-Z250 has always set the standard as the best handling 250 on the track. Fed by a dual injector EFI system, a center-port cylinder head, and an AMA-compliant exhaust, the RM-Z250’s engine delivers strong, usable power through the entire rev-range. 

The twin-spar aluminum frame and hydro-formed swingarm carry a KYB-supplied suspension that includes a coil spring fork and a shock with four-way damping force adjustment. Strong brakes and ergonomically shaped bodywork help keep the rider in control as the RM-Z250 carves up the racetrack. 

Tuning the fuel injection and ignition for maximum performance is easy thanks to Suzuki’s smartphone-based MX-Tuner and proven fuel-coupler system. Suzuki’s Winning Balance is on display with the 2023 RM-Z250 as it maintains its high standard for cornering performance.
