2013 Suzuki RM-Z250, An Updated Champ's Bike
text size: A- A+
The compact 4-stroke 249cc fuel-injected engine is now lighter, while retaining the whole performance specs. The new transmission for 2013 provides a smoother power deployment via the 5-speed gearbox while the all-new separate-function forks form Showa come with advanced damping and rebound technology with a 1 mm increase in diameter.
While the rear shock was already adjustable in the previous models, 2013 brings spring-preload adjustment for the fork, as well. With a curb weight of only 106.5 kg (235 lbs), revised, more rigid frame and race-approved Renthal handlebars, the 2013 Suzuki RM-Z250 offers even better handling for the skilled dirt racer.
