Dirt Bike News - 2005 Suzuki RM Motocrossers - Dirt Rider Magazine

Suzuki's '05 line is here, and with some big changes. With RC on board for the 2005 season, Suzuki has the potential to get back on the podium, and they plan to do it with an all new RM250. They focused their efforts on creating a two-stroker that will compete with the power level of four-strokes. Look for a lighter, more potent machine with more ponies across the board.The RM-Z450 and the RM125 are sporting some serious changes as well. All RM models feature improved Showa suspension, lighter, stronger components, and improved rider ergonomics. And so far, Suzuki is the only company with serious updates to their 2005 85s. For more information on the 2005 models, check out the August issue of Dirt Rider magazine.
