The 2010 RMX450Z from Suzuki represents the highest level of off-the-shelf performance found in a modern machine. Priced at $8,399, this Suzuki is a closed-course motorcycle designed for competition use on an MX track. Although engineered to be totally competitive in stock form, the RMX450Z is also the perfect platform to modify in order to meet your specific riding style, ability, and setup preferences. A 449cc 4-stroke engine delivers power to the ground, while the telescopic fork, fully adjustable shock and 272-pound overall weight work together to maximize the handling characteristics. Read a more in-depth test of the RMX450Z - as well as the rest of the 2010 machines.

Watch any major pro motocross race from the last 25 years and you're likely to spot a Suzuki running somewhere in or near the top five of the results. The yellow machines have been front-runners for decades, and more recently it has been proven that bikes like the 2010 RMX450Z have what it takes to get to the top of the podium in what is most definitely a stacked displacement category in 2010. From Travis Pastrana to Ricky Carmichael to Ken Roczen, Suzukis have proven their worth time and time again.
