Important Things to Know About the 2024 Suzuki RM-Z250

Features of and details about Suzuki’s 2019–2024 quarter-liter MX bike.

In 2019, Suzuki’s RM-Z250 was given a host of updates. For starters, the engine featured a new cylinder head, intake camshaft profile, throttle body, and exhaust system. In the suspension department, Suzuki ditched the previous model’s KYB PSF2 48mm air fork for a coil-spring unit, and spec’d a new KYB shock. Chassis-wise, the Japanese manufacturer developed a new aluminum frame with a 10 percent increase in torsional rigidity, and added a redesigned subframe and lighter swingarm. Among other changes, Suzuki also wrapped its 250F motocross bike with new bodywork.

The RM-Z250 hasn’t seen a mechanical revision since then, just different graphics some years. The same rings true for 2024, but Suzuki Motor USA has a special promotion that runs through the end of 2023 that allows those who purchase a new 2024 Suzuki RM-Z250 to get an aftermarket exhaust system and graphics kit free of charge. Whether you want to learn more about the limited-time offer or the RM-Z250′s features and specifications, the video above and spec sheet below should be helpful.

We’ll publish more content on the 2024 Suzuki RM-Z250 RM Army Edition in the future, so stay tuned to the site to learn more about the 250F motocross bike from Hamamatsu that corners as sharp as it looks.
