Suzuki RMX450Z

Descended from the World Championship winning RM-Z450, the first motocross bike to feature fuel injection, the RMX450Z is designed for serious competition enduro racers.

Its powerful and torquey 449cc, liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine shares core technology such as fuel injection with the race proven RM-Z, but with modifications for more usable power across a wider range of conditions.

Its frame, suspension and bodywork all maintain the RM-Z's slim and aggressive styling, and the motocross seat combines with revised chassis geometry and an 18" rear wheel for a comfortable and confidence-inspiring ride.

An electric start, backed-up with a kick start ensure you can get going quickly and easily wherever you find yourself. The headlight and tail lamp add to the RMX's versatility, all powered by a compact battery, located centrally to maintain a balanced bike.

Every feature of the RMX450Z has been carefully designed with enduro racers in mind, the result is like taking your race-bred motocross machine out on the enduro, only much better.
