Suzuki's 2011 model enduro racer, the RMX450Z, has arrived in Australia.
Suzuki has announced its 2011 model RMX450Z enduro bike is now available in Australia. Here’s the full press release direct from Suzuki:
The 2011 model of Suzuki’s competition-specific enduro racer, the RMX450Z, has arrived in Australia.
The fuel-injected RMX450Z maximises off road performance with advanced technology developed by Suzuki race teams around the world in motocross competition.
The RMX450Z shares the DNA of Suzuki’s championship winning RM-Z450 motocrosser, including a fuel-injected 449cc engine, and race-bred frame, suspension and bodywork.
Delivering exceptional power and torque, the RMX450Z is powered by a 449cc, four-stroke single-cylinder, liquid cooled, DOHC, 4-valve engine, sharing the key technologies of the RM-Z450.
Utilising Suzuki’s vast experience and knowledge on and off-road, the Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system ensures crisp and strong power delivery, lower emissions and impressive fuel economy.
The five speed transmission with wide gear ratios helps riders get the most from the impressive engine when off the beaten track, from tackling a rutted uphill single track to open fire roads.
The trail is no place to be kick-starting, and the RMX450Z features an electric starter, while the starter and lights centrally-located battery is charged by a large magneto-generator.
Based on the RM-Z450 but optimised for off-road riding, an aluminium alloy frame utilises cast and extruded sections in a slim, lightweight, rigid and tough package, including quality Renthal tapered bars.
The RMX450Z is fitted with an 18-inch rear wheel which allows fitment for tyres with a higher sidewall for greater puncture resistance.
Slim bodywork, a low-profile aluminium fuel tank and a motocross-developed seat gives RMX450Z pilots a functional riding position to focus on the terrain ahead to optimise line selection.
Completing the package, the RMX450Z’s compact instrumentation offers riders the choice between two modes, a sports mode showing the basic information a rider needs in competition, such as a trip meter, timer and average speed, while a standard mode displays additional information including speed, time and information of two trip lengths.
Now available for a Recommended Price of $11,990*, the 2011 Suzuki RMX450Z comes in Suzuki’s trademark Black / Champion Yellow livery with eye-catching new graphics accompanying its aggressive styling.
