That combination means you can launch out of corners with breathtaking acceleration and attack the nastiest sections of the track with total confidence. The Suzuki RM-Z450 is loaded with advanced technology to make it remarkably easy to ride. Including the Suzuki Advanced Sump System, the Suzuki Active Vent System, lightweight and durable titanium valves, hollow billet camshafts and much more.
