The Winning Balance

The 250 class in motocross doesn’t forgive the slightest weakness. That’s why we’ve completely redesigned the all-new 2019 RM-Z250 to achieve the right balance of “Run, Turn, and Stop” necessary to win in this ultra-competitive arena. Intensive work by our engineers has once again made the RM-Z250 the leader out of the gate. Look out...the 2019 RM-Z250 is here!


The frame and swingarm are all new, with the aluminium frame spars changing to a hollow square section that does away with an internal rib, shedding 370 grams while increasing torsional rigidity by 10% for better stability and bump absorption.

KYB Front Forks

The new KYB coil spring fork features a unique design that provides a progressive damping setup offering excellent compliance over small bumps while firming up deeper into the stroke to handle bigger hits such as harsh jump landings. Upper and lower triple clamp design has been optimised for rigidity while cutting 60 grams.

KYB Rear Shock

Out back, the rear suspension linkage ratio has been changed to firm up short stroke movement while optimising longer suspension action for better traction, and is 14.9 grams lighter.

Upgraded Front Brakes

All of the RM-Z250's added speed potential won’t help if you can’t keep the “Stop” portion of the performance triangle balanced, so we beefed up the RM-Z250’s front brake for 2019. The disc diameter has been increased from 250mm to 270mm, and the brake pad material has been changed for more linear response characteristics as you brake harder.

Aggressive Styling

The 2019 RM-Z250 maintains Suzuki’s distinctive “Beak DNA” styling. Intended to convey the brand’s heritage of speed in our off-road bikes, the front fender and radiator shroud are arranged to form a straight line, with the sharp and edgy angles expressing a feeling of dynamic speed. Like the RM-Z450, the 2019 RM-Z250 is finished in the Team Suzuki off-road colours of yellow with blue accents, making the RM-Z lineup easily recognisable.
