Brea, CA – Led by the strong championship-winning family of motocrossers, Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. is proud to announce its 2020 motocross, off-road and youth models. With more charisma for 2020, select models return with fresh, new colours and graphics that highlight Suzuki's renowned attention to style while retaining its dedication to reliability, performance and value.
The 2020 RM-Z450 remains the champion's choice, as its sleek, race-ready appearance, strong engine, and nimble chassis continue the Suzuki tradition of extraordinarily precise handling.
The RM-Z450 epitomises Suzuki’s Winning Balance philosophy with strong brakes for controlled stopping power, a wide spread of engine muscle with high peak power, and a strong, light, and more nimble chassis that remains the class standard for cornering performance.
Fresh off its recent redesign, the 2020 RM-Z250 is ready for battle. The agile RM-Z250 marries the sleek, race-ready appearance of the RM-Z450 with a versatile engine and a responsive chassis to deliver superior performance. Using Suzuki's "RUN, TURN and STOP" philosophy, factory engineers have made the RM-Z250 an even more formidable competitor.
The RM-Z250 has always set the standard as the best-handling 250 on the track. Now, the 2020 version brings strong, usable power thanks to a center-port cylinder head. The engine is fed via a dual injector EFI system and an AMA-compliant exhaust that helps boost performance through the entire rev-range.
The twin-spar aluminum frame and hydro-formed swingarm carry a KYB-supplied suspension that includes a coil spring fork and a shock with four-way damping force adjustment. Strong brakes and ergonomically shaped bodywork that helps keep the rider in control as the RM-Z250 carves up the racetrack.
Back in the pits, tuning the new EFI system for maximum performance is easy, thanks to Suzuki’s proven fuel-coupler system. Suzuki's Winning Balance is again on display with the 2020 RM-Z250, as it again raises its own high standard for cornering performance.
The RM85 continues to carry on the powerful tradition of racing excellence in the Suzuki motocross family. The reliable two-stroke engine produces smooth power at any rpm with an emphasis on low- to mid-range performance. Just 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!
