Suzuki Announces 2018 RM-Z250 and Off-Road Models

Brea, Calif - While the buzz among racers and the Powersports industry is still high from the recent announcement of the all-new 2018 RM-Z450, Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (SMAI) is honored to announce additional 2018 motorcycles and ATVs that will soon be available. Continuing Suzuki’s strong push with new and improved models over the recent years, these 2018 motorcycles and ATVs represent a strong combination of performance, value and style for US riders.

2018 RM-Z250

The 2018 Suzuki RM-Z250 is an excellent choice for racers who want to create a championship-caliber bike. The engine and chassis work great stock and accept competition prep well thanks to a variety of features originally developed for Suzuki’s factory race bikes. The competition-proven Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC) gives riders the best shot at launching out of the starting gate first on a wide variety of track conditions, and the specialized KYB PSF2 Pneumatic Spring fork provides both easy adjustability and outstanding action to give the RM-Z250 precise handling. The well-sorted aluminum twin-spar frame helps ensure the razor-sharp handling Suzuki’s are famous for. 

MSRP $7,749, available in Championship Yellow, in dealers in July 2017.

Suzuki RM85

The 2018 Suzuki RM85 continues the Suzuki tradition of two-stroke racing excellence and it’s the perfect bike for motocross family racers. The reliable 84.7cc liquid-cooled, reed-valve engine produces smooth power at any RPM. Like its larger RM-Z cousins, the RM85 delivers class-leading handling for both experienced racers and rookie riders alike. With its smooth power delivery and lightweight handling, the RM85 is the perfect motocross bike for anyone learning to race and striving to win!

MSRP $4,149, available in Championship Yellow, in dealers in September 2017

2018 Off-Road Models

For riders who enjoy off-road fun away from the motocross track the 2018 RMX450Z, DR-Z125L and DR-Z70 return, also turned out with new accent colors and graphics on their championship yellow bodywork so they visually match with the striking new RM-Z450.

Suzuki RMX450Z

Ready for play or enduro competition, the 2018 Suzuki RMX450Z is powered by a fuel-injected engine derived from the RM-Z450. Every RMX450Z is EPA Emissions and California Green-sticker compliant so registration and finding appropriate riding areas is easy.  The RMX450Z’s trail-ready features include an electric starter (plus kick-start back-up) powered by a compact battery, a full charging system, a multi-function enduro computer, plus a bright headlight and LED tail light. True to its RM-Z heritage, the RMX’s lightweight and rigid aluminum twin-spar frame, fully adjustable Showa suspension, and 21” and 18” diameter EXCEL wheels deliver responsive and stable handling.

MSRP $8,999, available in Championship Yellow, in dealers in September 2017.

Suzuki DR-Z125L

Younger or smaller stature riders can take to the dirt with ease on the 2018 Suzuki DR-Z125L. Styled like our Championship-winning RM-Z and RMX models, the DR-Z125L is a real motorcycle powered by an ultra-reliable 124cc four-stroke single that delivers smooth power through a manual clutch and five-speed transmission. While riders are learning true throttle, clutch and shifting skills the DR-Z125L’s single-shock chassis with larger 19-inch front and 16-inch rear tires, as well as a front disc brake, deliver big bike performance to a size appropriate motorcycle.

MSRP $3,249, available in Championship Yellow, in dealers in August 2017.
