The 2020 Suzuki RM-Z450 has a starting suggested retail price of $8,999 and is available in yellow. Powering this Japanese motorcycle is a liquid-cooled, DOHC, four-valve, 449cc four-stroke engine.
We ran the RM-Z450 on our rear-wheel dyno to determine peak output from Suzuki’s flagship motocross bike. We documented 49.9 hp at 8,900 rpm and 32.4 pound-feet of torque at 7,600 rpm.
