The 2017 Suzuki RM-Z250 has some amazing qualities, such as its stellar turning capability and overall comfort. However, it does have some soft spots: the fork is average at best, and the engine, while user-friendly, could stand to be beefed up a little. We approached this project with the same focus we always do: addressing the weak spots of the bike and turning them into strengths.
