The RM-Z450 weighs in at 250 pounds on our automotive scales, which makes it and the Honda CRF450R the two heftiest in the class. As a result, it feels a bit heavier on the track than the other bikes, including the Honda because the CRF450R masks its weight well. The RM-Z450 lives up to Suzuki’s reputation of cornering exceptionally well. The chassis feels long and is a bit rigid, and the latter can lead to some unpredictability in rough parts of the track. The Suzuki’s ergonomics are good and easy to get used to quickly. The midsection of the bike is thin, the levers are agreeable, and the lower position of the Renthal Fatbar is likable, too.
