2021 Suzuki Motocross, Off-Road, And Dual Sport Bikes Unveiled

RM-Z models feature a new tuning device while others enjoy appearance updates.

Founded originally as a loom manufacturer in Hamamatsu, Japan, Suzuki celebrates its 100th anniversary as a company in 2020, and has recently provided information about its 2021 motocross, off-road, and dual sport bikes.

Beginning with the full-size motocrossers, we see the flagship RM-Z450 and smaller-bore RM-Z250 return with updated graphics for 2021. In addition to their long-standing optional fuel couplers, the RM-Z250 and RM-Z450 now have the capability for the electronic fuel-injection and ignition systems to be tuned with Suzuki’s mobile-device-based MX-Tuner 2.0, which is now included with each RM-Z model.

Suzuki’s youth motorcycles—the RM85, DR-Z125L, and DR-Z50—all return with updated graphics for 2021, while the DR-Z400S dual sport is offered in a new gray color scheme and has different graphics as well.

The easiest way to tell a 2021 Suzuki DR-Z400S from the prior year model is by its gray fuel tank, radiator shrouds, headlight, and front fender. It also features different graphics.
