The RM-Z250 continues to evolve for 2016, delivering a higher level of performance with suspension and frame advancements to improve its already class-leading handling, the addition of Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC), and extensive engine upgrades, bringing over 80 redesigned internal engine parts to the 2016 RM-Z250.
KYB Suspension - The 2016 RM-Z250’s suspension has been completely redesigned for improved handling, reduced weight and increased overall performance. The new PSF2 air fork eliminates the coil spring, the heaviest part of a spring fork, resulting in a 1kg weight savings, and adjusting the suspension is now as simple as adding or subtracting air.
Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC) - Designed for ease of use and maximum control of power to the ground, S-HAC lets you match the engine’s power delivery to the starting conditions. A new, three-stage version of S-HAC fitted to the 2016 RM-Z250 adjusts the ignition map for the initial moment of launch, then re-adjusts timing for the time the motorcycle moves through the starting gate area, then another adjustment is applied during the longer primary acceleration period.
Redesigned Frame - Designed to improve the RMZ-Z250’s already outstanding handling characteristics, the 2016 frame has been modified resulting in greater cornering and straight line performance. Overall frame weight has been lowered by 2.5%.
