The RM-Z450 continues to deliver the class-leading performance that has made it one of the most successful 450cc motocross bikes ever produced. The 2016 model features a more advanced version of the Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC) system which gives riders the edge over the competition for the perfect start. Paired with the ultra-lightweight and easily tuneable 49mm Showa SFF-Air fork which brings factory level performance and adjustability to riders of all abilities. Add in the rugged, yet super responsive chassis to the mix and it’s clear that the RM-Z450 continues to be a winner.

49mm SHOWA SFF-Air TAC Fork
The most advanced fork in motocross, the SFF-Air fork is delivered straight from the factory race bikes. It consists of 3 air chambers that riders can easily adjust by using a hand-held air pump to quickly optimise the bike to the conditions, just like setting your tyre pressures. The three-chamber fork uses an Inner Air Chamber that handles the main suspension reaction force (spring-rate), a smaller Balance Air Chamber opposing the main reaction force, and an Outer Air Chamber that supports the main reaction force.
Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC) is a selectable launch mode system derived straight from our factory race bikes. S-HAC helps riders takeoff from the starting gate for an early lead. S-HAC was first introduced last year on the 2015 RM-Z450, and now a refined version is available on the 2016 RM-Z250 & RM-Z450. There are three modes riders can choose for the best option per their skill level and starting conditions.
Championship Proven Engine
For race-winning performance, a motocross engine needs to be durable, efficient and powerful. To win championships, that engine needs to come with the experience and know-how that you only get from Suzuki. The 449cm3, 4-stroke liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valve fuel-injected engine packs the perfect combination of broad torque and arm-stretching horsepower perfect for today’s racer.
A motocross bike's single piston must endure an explosive environment and needs to perform with efficiency and durability. Through feedback from factory racing, the piston and piston pin were developed using Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis. The RM-Z450 piston pin has Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) surface treatment, for less friction and increased durability.
The Best Chassis in Motocross
The RM-Z450 features a twin-spar aluminium frame and swingarm that has been developed and refined over the years to achieve the perfect balance between rigidity and flex. It's no secret that Suzuki RM-Zs are known as the best-cornering bikes in motocross.
Renthal Aluminium Fatbar
Fitted as standard equipment , the top-shelf Renthal aluminium Fatbar offers more strength and less vibration than standard size aluminium handlebars.
Excel Aluminium Rims
Excel aluminum rims are made specifically to withstand rugged racing environments, including Supercross, outdoor Motocross and off-road conditions. The aluminium-alloy rims are designed and shaped to stay strong and to maintain their good looks.
Rich & Lean Fuel Couplers
Riders can adjust the engine performance to suit varied track conditions. By plugging in either of two additional fuel-setting couplers, riders can opt for a richer-than-stock or leaner-than-stock fuel setting to make the most of any riding conditions. Included with the bike, these couplers can be easily plugged in trackside.
