The new 2017 Suzuki RMX450Z delivers an enduro punch for trail riders who want a higher level of performance. This new off-road achiever shares core componentry with the championship-winning RM-Z450 motocross bike. It begins with a 449cc four-stroke, four-valve engine featuring Suzuki fuel-injection technology that delivers smooth power, trusted reliability and high fuel efficiency. For off-road uses, Suzuki engineers modified the engine’s intake, added an easy-access hinged airbox, and revised the cam profiles for improved low- to mid-range power delivery. The package also includes a larger magneto-generator for battery charging and headlight power. A wide-ratio, five-speed transmission helps riders power through a variety of conditions. The RMX uses an aluminum-alloy twin-spar frame that is lightweight and provides the needed rigidity and durability to triumph over tough trails. Fully adjustable SHOWA forks and piggyback-reservoir-style shock are off-road focused, delivering the handling edge that makes the RM-Zs famous. The RMX runs on trail-ready, black-anodized Excel aluminum rims, 18-inch rear and 21-inch front. A bright 35W headlight is well-integrated into this enduro’s front number plate. Rear illumination is handled by a small, low-draw LED taillight tucked under the fender. The bike’s frame gets needed protection items such as high-impact guards for fork legs, rear brake rotor and caliper. A full-function instrument panel features sport and standard-mode operation to provide riders with just the information needed for the ride. The instruments rest on the standard-equipment Renthal Fatbar handlebars – the strong and vibration-reducing choice for high-performance riders. The new RMX450Z is ready to give trail riders the high-performance edge they desire. 2017 Suzuki RMX450Z MSRP: $8,999 Engine Engine: 449cc, 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, single cylinder, DOHC Bore x Stroke: 96.0 x 62.1mm (3.78 x 2.4 in.)
