Suzuki

Suzuki Cycles is the motorcycle division of the Japanese based company Suzuki. Suzuki was founded in 1909, but the motorcycle division wasn't formed until 1952 when they manufacturer their first motorized bicycle. This eventually led into the company going all in and beginning production on both road bikes and dirt bikes. Today, Suzuki is on of the "big six" dirt bike manufacturers and supports several teams around the world.

  • While Suzuki showed us the initial photos of this bike and some light comments a few months ago, it's created a waiting game as we got closer to finally riding the bike. To speed things up a bit, Suzuki flew us to Japan to meet with the R&D staff behind the machine and finally see one up clo...

  • Suzuki has given us the details on their long-awaited RM-Z250, while we attend their model launch in Japan. One year after the debut of their new RM-Z450, it was expected we'd see a new 250 four-stroke from the Hamamatsu, Japan-based manufacture. Albeit, it's obvious to see this bike received a ...

  • More Motocross Videos While it's true that Suzuki's RM-Z450 features the same plastic it did nine model years ago, it's often forgotten how many parts and updates it's actually received over the years. While it may look similar to the 2008 model, it's different and comparable at the sam...

  • The Good:

    Handles like a scalpel.

    Cheap PC Works pipe and shorty will restore explosive 05/06 powerband(at a small over-rev cost) that 07 re-porting tamed.

    Cheap to buy, cheap to fix.

    Developing Popeye forearms to hold on when it hooks up.

    The Bad:

    If you've only ridden 4Ts, expect a learning curve. This isn't some 4T tractor with lbs of gyroscopic rotating mass right under your balls resisting leaning.

    If you've only ridden 4Ts, you will overshoot some corners and stall the engine while you learn how to use brakes with no engine braking to help.

    Sprained cheek muscles from all the grinning.

    Overall Review: 2Ts are the "rat rods" of moto. Yeah, 4Ts with their 200CC cheater advantage are a bit faster**. We don't care. If you're bored riding essentially the exact same bike as everybody else, just in a different color, on the same lines, sounding exactly the same, get a 2T. It'll be a challenge to...

  • The Good:

    Awesome handling bullet proof bike perfect fueling amazingly smooth throttle response heaps of power light clutch very slim bike that turns so well never let me down always starts 2nd time kick hot or cold.

    The Bad:

    Hard to think of a bad point could do with frame protectors from the factory ???????????

    Overall Review: From past experience will always buy the big S. Great bike.

  • The Good:

    I have 100 hrs on the bike and it has been great so far. Turns great, the motor is great, and handles even better. The only issue I have is the stock suspension is soft for bigger/faster riders. I revalved mine and its now great.

    The Bad:

    I dont have a single complaint.

    Overall Review: I would recommend this bike to anyone.
