Brea, CA — Led by the advance look at an all-new RM-Z250 motocross machine and the new DR-Z50 mini, Suzuki Motor of America (SMAI) is proud to announce the introduction of its 2019 motocross, dualSport, off-road and youth models. The completely updated RM-Z250 features a long list of enhancements and performance improvements and now mirrors the cutting-edge styling of its big brother, the RM-Z450, introduced just last year. For young riders just starting out, Suzuki offers the new DR-Z50 mini. Featuring a host of convenience and safety features, the DR-Z50 is the perfect way to introduce youngsters to the thrill of dirt bike riding.

All-new from the ground up in 2018, the RM-Z450 returns with key updates to its suspension while Suzuki’s versatile DualSport and DR-Z400SM models continue to provide owners with class-leading performance whether riding on- or off-road. For those ready to take Suzuki’s renowned motocross bike handling to the trails, the RMX450Z returns for serious desert and woods riders. The DR-Z125L is everyone’s favorite trail bike and returns with RM-Z inspired graphics. 

2019 Motocross Models

Suzuki’s tradition of building championship winning, high-performance motocross machines takes the next step forward with the pre-announcement of the all-new, 2019 RM-Z250. Designed to move it to the head of the 250 class, this all-new stunner features a long list of enhancements and performance improvements. Preliminary information on this new motorcycle is available now with full product details and specifications set to be announced in September.

Evolving the fundamental performance elements of "RUN," "TURN" and "STOP" to a new level, Suzuki has infused the winning balance into the new 2019 RM-Z250.

Suzuki engineers have achieved an even greater level of balance between the race-proven performance of the RM-Z250’s engine and chassis. Particular attention was focused on advancing its ‘TURN’ capabilities to continue Suzuki’s tradition of producing the best handling motorcycles on the racetrack. 

The styling of the RM-Z250 is all-new and unified with that of the RM-Z450.

With a decade’s worth of race win dominance, the 2019 RM-Z450 remains the champion’s choice. Fully-revised in 2018, the RM-Z450 returns with its sleek, race-ready appearance, strong engine, and a nimble chassis that continues Suzuki’s tradition of having the best-handling 450. To further improve the agile RM-Z450, a new spring has been fitted to the Showa BFRC shock with new damping force settings while the coil-spring fork has new damping-force settings as well.  Continual improvement is why the RM-Z450 remains the class standard for cornering performance.
