First Impressions: 2017 Suzuki RM-Z250

Vital Review

More Motocross Videos

After a host of upgrades in 2016 (including engine updates, new suspension components, and a new frame), Suzuki's RM-Z250 has remained mostly the same for outside of some cosmetic changes for 2017. Based on our shootout opinions from last season, we already know the weak point of the small-bore four stroke Suzuki is centered around the overall output of the engine. But in usual Suzuki style, the handling characteristics are top-level and keep some positive light over the machine. Check out some opinions from our test rider, Chris See, as he spins some laps out at the famous Glen Helen Raceway.
