2010 Suzuki RM-Z250

Championship winning performance…..ready for you now.

Suzuki races to win, period. And, thanks to the hard work of Ryan Dungey in the U.S., the RM-Z250 is the AMA Supercross Lites West Coast Champion for 2009. But winning goes beyond the champagne. For the 2010 RM-Z250, Suzuki applied lessons learned on the track to turn up the speed, handling and confidence you’ll get racing every day, anywhere in the world.

Suzuki racing technology is everywhere you look: advanced Suzuki fuel injection is fitted for the first time on a four-stroke 250 cm3 Suzuki motocross machine. Further engine modifications boost peak power without giving up any of the low-end or midrange that has made the RM-Z250 the choice of top riders everywhere. Chassis updates improve handling with key suspension upgrades making the new RM-Z250 the perfect weapon for motocross racers worldwide. And there’s the eye-catching slim, aggressive styling that causes the RM-Z250 stand out at any track.

Think of the 2010 RM-Z250 as the perfect racing package.

Following in the footsteps of the ground-breaking Suzuki RM-Z450 motocrosser, Suzuki's all-new, 2010 RM-Z250 will become the first production motocross machine in its class to feature electronic fuel-injection.

The RM-Z250 will introduce Suzuki's innovative fuel-injection technology to quarter-litre, four-stroke motocross racing, in a completely-new package later this year, along with major engine, chassis and suspension developments.

Developed in competition, Suzuki's new RM-Z250 is set to raise the bar again and further build on the model's recent racing results.

Earlier this year, Ryan Dungey won the AMA Supercross Lites West Coast Championship on his RM-Z250, while local young gun Matt Moss leads the Australian Motocross Pro Lites Championship after dominating the Australian Supercross Pro Lites Championship in 2008.

"Fuel-injection technology has revolutionised motocross racing following its introduction on the Suzuki RM-Z450 two years ago," Perry Morison, General Manager, Motorcycles, Suzuki Australia said.

"Now, Suzuki is set to lead the pack again with the all-new 2010 RM-Z250, the first production motocrosser in its class with a fuel injected engine.

"Adding that technology to the championship-winning Suzuki RM-Z250 with other developments across the board in an all-new model will make it a formidable racing opponent."

Compact, lightweight and now revving to a stunning 13,500pm, the new RM-Z250's 249cc, four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid cooled, DOHC powerplant is in a class of its own.

Pioneered on the RM-Z450, Suzuki's Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system incorporates a 43mm throttle body with progressive throttle linkage and a battery-less fuel pump, giving the RM-Z250 outstanding performance.

The potent engine features titanium valves, an aluminium-alloy cylinder, with Suzuki's Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) cylinder coating, and Suzuki Advanced Sump System (SASS).

A range of race-bred improvements make the RM-Z250 a Pro Lites-leading performer.

Revised cam timing and intake ports have enhanced high-rpm performance, without compromising the Suzuki's impressive low-to-mid range power and torque.

The potent new engine features a new, stronger connecting rod and mirror finishing, and the crankshaft is also stronger and more rigid.

Radiator louvers have been re-designed, directing more air to the twin, side-mounted aluminium alloy radiators, keeping the RM-Z250 cool in the heat of battle.

Making the most of its new fuel injection system and powerplant, the Suzuki is also fitted with a new muffler.

With carefully selected ratios to maximise performance, the RM-Z250 has a slick-shifting, five-speed transmission, while a right-handlebar-mounted hot starter makes getting moving quick and simple.

Accompanying the sensational new engine, the Suzuki RM-Z250 has an updated chassis and suspension system offering superior cornering and tighter line selection.

Redesigned and more-rigid, a lightweight twin-spar aluminium-alloy frame delivers gains in a number of areas, including better balance and traction at high speed.

Lower frame tube walls are thicker and side rails slightly shallower, and a new swingarm has a revised centre brace to increase rigidity, with a centralised mass to deliver optimum traction.

With thoroughly revised spring and damping rates at the front and rear, the updated suspension combines with the chassis to give RM-Z250 riders razor-sharp and confidence-inspiring handling.

A 47mm inner tube, Showa inverted, twin-chamber, cartridge-style front fork offers 22-way compression damping, 20-way rebound damping and 300mm of wheel travel.

The Showa rear shock absorber combines with a revised rear suspension linkage, reducing thrust backlash and improving traction to deliver more consistent performance.

First-class front and rear disc brakes have wave rotors, optimising cooling performance and mud deflection.

A result of Suzuki's trademark attention to detail carefully-designed new footpeg brackets, prevent mud clogging to maximise rider feel.

The RM-Z250's textured seat gives riders plenty of grip as part of a comfortable riding position, with Renthal tapered aluminium handlebars and a Renthal-labelled handlebar pad reducing vibrations.

Featuring a whole new look, the black and yellow plastics are now offset by eye catching red, black and white graphics and are further complemented by black background numberplates.

Race ready, out of the crate.

 


 

Features

Suzuki fuel injection is fitted for the first time on a four-stroke 250cm3 Suzuki motocross machine. Derived from the pacesetting RM-Z450’s superlative system, the RM-Z250’s battery-less injection features a 43mm throttle body with progressive throttle linkage, a 16-bit computer and unique capacitor-assisted starting system. A durable, lightweight magneto-generator powers the fuel injection after starting.

Improved radiator louvers direct more cooling air to the twin side-mounted aluminum alloy radiators for lower engine temperatures. They are joined to the outer bodywork for increased strength without adding weight.

A new, stronger connecting rod and mirror finishing permits maximum engine output to a stunning 13,500 rpm.

A new muffler is fitted to optimize the benefits of the all new fuel injection system.

For 2010, the RM-Z250’s number plates have a black background.

Connecting the 19-inch rear wheel and the lightweight chassis is a new swingarm with an improved center brace for increased rigidity that also more concentrates its mass for enhanced suspension action and greater traction.

The RM-Z250’s twin-spar aluminum alloy frame has been redesigned with several key components to optimize rigidity balance and improve traction at high speed. The lower frame tube has thicker walls, 3.0mm versus 2.5mm, while the side rails are slightly shallower.

Revised cam timing works in conjunction with updated intake ports to boost power and torque at the top of the power band.


Revised spring and damping rates inside the inverted Showa 47mm fork and piggyback single shock result in improved handling. Modifications to the rear suspension linkage that reduce thrust backlash also improve traction and make for more consistent performance.
