Key styling updates for Suzuki's 2017 RM-Z250.
Suzuki’s quarter litre RM-Z250 continues where it left off in 2017 after being completely overhauled for this year. The biggest change to the 2017 iteration of the 250 is new black anodised rims and triple clamps, yellow-top seat cover, yellow rear guard, black side plates and all-new graphics.
Retaining its phenomenal 249cc DOHC engine – best known for its strong midrange power and over-rev – the highly praised KYB PSF2 front forks and shock also return on the 2017 model offering infinite tuning adjustability and confidence-inspiring feel.
The 2017 RM-Z250 is equipped with the Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC) system which helps riders achieve better launches from the starting gate. There are three modes riders can choose for the best option per their skill level and starting conditions at the gate.
Riders can adjust the engine performance to suit varied track conditions by plugging in either of two additional fuel-setting coupler supplied with the bikes. With a richer-than-stock or leaner-than-stock fuel setting possible, riders can easily make the most of the track conditions trackside.
Excel aluminium rims are made specifically to withstand rugged racing environments with the aluminium-alloy black anodised rims designed and shaped to stay strong and to maintain their good looks. A standard fitment Renthal aluminium Fatbar offers more strength and less vibrations for the rider.
To celebrate the launch of the 2017 models, Suzuki is offering customers a bonus Race Pack that includes Worx Bike Stand, bike service kit, spare air filter and replacement front and rear brake pad sets on every 2017 RM-Z purchased before 30 September, 2016.
The 2017 RM-Z250 is due to arrive in dealerships in September, for an un-changed recommended price of $9990. For more information on the RM-Z, or the rest of the Suzuki range, head to www.suzukimotorcycles.com.au.
