THE SUZUKI RMX450Z IS BACK!

We just received this press release from Suzuki Motor Corp about the return of a revitalized RMX450Z off-road machine for 2017. One note here, the machine is Green Sticker legal and we mention this because we could not find it in their release.

The new 2017 Suzuki RMX450Z delivers an enduro punch for trail riders who want a higher level of performance. This new off-road achiever shares core componentry with the championship-winning RM-Z450 motocross bike. It begins with a 449cc four-stroke, four-valve engine featuring Suzuki fuel-injection technology that delivers smooth power, trusted reliability and high fuel efficiency. For off-road uses, Suzuki engineers modified the engine’s intake, added an easy-access hinged airbox, and revised the cam profiles for improved low- to mid-range power delivery. The package also includes a larger magneto-generator for battery charging and headlight power. A wide-ratio, five-speed transmission helps riders power through a variety of conditions.

The RMX uses an aluminum-alloy twin-spar frame that is lightweight and provides the needed rigidity and durability to triumph over tough trails. Fully adjustable SHOWA forks and piggyback-reservoir-style shock are off-road focused, delivering the handling edge that makes the RM-Zs famous. The RMX runs on trail-ready, black-anodized Excel aluminum rims, 18-inch rear and 21-inch front.
A bright 35W headlight is well-integrated into this enduro’s front number plate. Rear illumination is handled by a small, low-draw LED taillight tucked under the fender. The bike’s frame gets needed protection items such as high-impact guards for fork legs, rear brake rotor and caliper. A full-function instrument panel features sport and standard-mode operation to provide riders with just the information needed for the ride. The instruments rest on the standard-equipment Renthal Fatbar handlebars – the strong and vibration-reducing choice for high-performance riders.
The new RMX450Z is ready to give trail riders the high-performance edge they desire.
