2007 Suzuki RM-Z250
2007 Ranges | 2006 Ranges | 2005 Ranges | 2004 Ranges
The new dominant force in MX2 has landed - The all NEW RM-Z250 is here and IS 100% Suzuki! With the new Aluminum cradle frame, GSX-R road bike engine technology and high-level Showa suspension, the new RM-Z250 is coming to a hole-shot near you!
The All New RM-Z250 - The Weapon Of Choice
Suzuki engineers took a close look at the 2006 RM-Z250 engine and worked hard to tweak an engine that had already proven itself on the track. Engineers have redesigned the combustion chamber of the new RM-Z250. Both the intake and exhaust sides of the chamber are revised for better combustion efficiency.
Along with the combustion chamber changes, the intake and exhaust ports were reviewed and redesigned for more torque. Last year the dual intake and exhaust ports were separated by a partition. Suzuki engineers removed most of that partition and increased mid- and top-end power.
A revised crankcase breather system aids in reducing oil consumption by allowing the four-stroke to breathe easier at high rpm.
The gear ratio from third gear to fifth gear is revised for 2007. Those gear ratios are closer together for better performance on the track, helping racers be in the proper gear ratio at the proper time.
For 2007 the RM-Z250 transmission switches from a gear-type to a link-type shifting system. This allows the rider to better "tune in" to the transmission. It also allows for better shifting of the transmission. Radiator capacity is increased this year, too. More capacity means better cooling. You know how you run well when you are cool? The same holds true for engines. Along with the increased radiator capacity is a revised water pump design with a taller impeller blade and a smoother flow path.
The radiator shrouds are redesigned and work with the larger radiators.
The oil strainer is easier to maintain in 2007 thanks to an externally accessible design. No longer does a racer have to have the engine cases split to access the strainer. This was a direct request from race teams.
Suzuki engineers bring a completely new machine to MX2 for 2007. Featuring a completely new chassis means riders can be assured of Suzuki's commitment to providing a complete package for the racetrack.
The RM-Z250 is designed to be both lightweight and durable. These attributes inspire even greater confidence on the track.
With aluminum frames naturally rigid, Suzuki engineers worked hard to build in natural flex that racers want in an aluminum frame - translating into stability on the straights and cornering performance.
The swingarm is newly designed for 2007. With lightweight construction and a high rate of rigidity, the front part of the swingarm is cast and the main arms are extruded.
Along with the new swingarm comes a newly designed suspension link for better suspension performance.
The SHOWA front forks of the RM-Z250 are the same as the forks on the RM-Z450. The forks are optimised for better cornering performance and straight-line stability.
The RM-Z250 also takes the rear shock absorber from the RM-Z450 model. The shock absorber offers better performance and is valved and setup for cornering performance and stability through the whoops.
