2008 Suzuki RM250

Superior Fire Power

The ’07 Suzuki RM250 was awesome, dominating magazine shootouts and racetracks around the nation with unmatched performance and laser sharp handling.


Of course, when our engineers get on a roll, there’s no stopping them. Race-proven performance and handling characteristics combined with more low to mid-range power and increased torque at high RPM provides maximum performance on any track you ride. Plus, Renthal tapered aluminum handlebars come as standard equipment!


The best thing about this year’s RM250, though, is what stays the same. It still offers a better combination of power and handling than any competitor on the track. And that’s a winning combination you can use to take home the gold!
