MotoGP star John Hopkins has taken delivery of Suzuki's latest off road development, the all new RM-Z450, to help him maintain fitness for the gruelling race season ahead.
"I'm really pleased with my new Suz uki RM-Z450," enthused Hopkins. "It's an awesome piece of kit. I've been doing so much motocross lately and this bike is the best I've ever ridden, without any doubt. It has heaps of power, but it's still so light and easy to ride.
"I've always been a keen motocross rider and the new RM-Z will help any racer to improve. I used to think nothing beat the rear wheel steering on my Suzuki GSV-R in the MotoGP's, but now I'm not so sure."
The RM-Z450 is a culmination of Suzuki's ongoing championship-winning motocross and GSX-R four-stroke road racing development programmes. The machine will be put through its paces in MX1 - both at home and on the world scene - by Motovision Suzuki's Yoshitaka Atsuta and Neville Bradshaw this year.
The RM-Z450 has already gone through several tough tests by specialist press and you can read more on these tests by clicking here.
