Suzuki Launch The Heavily Updated 2019 RM-Z250

The 250 class in motocross doesn’t forgive the slightest weakness. That’s why Suzuki has completely redesigned the all-new 2019 RM-Z250 to achieve a higher level of performance in acceleration, turning, and braking necessary to win in this ultra-competitive arena. 

Intensive work by Suzuki engineers has once again made the RM-Z250 a leader out of the gate, with a new engine featuring increased power across the board and class-leading electronics, a lighter frame and swingarm plus updated suspension for even better handling, a completely new styling design, and a laundry list of other updates to make it one of the most potent motocrossers in its class. 

More Powerful Engine

A newly designed cylinder head combined with intake and exhaust port tuning and crankcase revisions to achieve an approximate 5% increase in output.

Dual Fuel Injection

The RM-Z250’s fuel injection system now features two injectors. Instead of using a single injector that can compromise low-end fuelling in order to supply enough fuel for top-end power, the primary injector delivers precise low-rpm fuelling while a secondary injector at higher rpm provides the extra fuel needed.

Evolved Traction Management

The RM-Z250’s electronic systems work seamlessly with the rider to get the power to the ground. To maximise traction for conditions, the engine control module (ECM) automatically adjusts ignition timing and fuel injection based on throttle position, engine speed and gear position. 

Get a Good Start

Watch any raceday motocross interview, and you’ll invariably hear “get a good start” cited as a must-do proposition. And getting holeshots is exactly what the latest version of the Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC) is all about. An integral part of the electronics package on the latest generation RM-Z range, the updated 3-stage S-HAC system assesses throttle position and gear selection, and then adjusts ignition timing to optimise engine output for fast launches.

All-New Chassis

The RM-Z250 is already known as one of the best-cornering motocross bikes available, but we went to work improving it even more for MY19. The frame and swingarm are all new, with the aluminium frame spars changing to a hollow square section that does away with an internal rib, shedding 370 grams while increasing torsional rigidity by 10 percent for better stability and bump absorption. Using a new hydroforming process for the aluminium swingarm permits a tapered cross-section without any welding, making the new assembly just as rigid with thinner walls for a weight loss of 80 grams.

Premium KYB Spring Fork and Rear Shock

The new KYB coil spring fork replaces the previous model's PSF2 air fork. Featuring a unique design that provides a progressive damping setup offering excellent compliance over small bumps while firming up deeper into the stroke to handle bigger hits such as harsh jump landings. Upper and lower triple clamp design has been optimised for rigidity while cutting 60 grams. Out back, the rear suspension linkage ratio has been changed to firm up short stroke movement while optimising longer suspension action for better traction, and is 14.9 grams lighter. The fully adjustable KYB shock has an improved range of adjustment, and a spring with thinner but stronger wire (feedback from MotoGP technology) that is 370 grams lighter than before. 

Centralised Mass

In order to increase the RM-Z250’s agility, the engine position was pivoted upward at the rear engine mount by 8.5mm measured at the crankshaft centre. The upper engine mount brackets are now aluminium instead of steel, and rather than four brackets suspending the engine from a single location, the 2019 RM-Z250 has four brackets on both sides of the engine. This not only drops another 90 grams, but also increases overall rigidity.

Dirtstar Rims, Dunlop MX33 Tyres & 270mm Front Wave Disc

New lighter Dirtstar wheels reduce all-important rotating mass by 40 grams up front, and 60 grams in the rear. For MY19, the RM-Z250 will be fitted with Dunlop’s latest Geomax MX33 tyre that has generated rave reviews. The front brake disc diameter has been increased to 270mm and the brake pad material has been changed for more linear response characteristics as you brake harder.

Aggressive Styling

In keeping with the signature design started by the 2018 RM-Z450, the 2019 RM-Z250 maintains Suzuki’s distinctive “Beak DNA” styling. Intended to convey the brand’s heritage of speed in our off-road bikes, the front fender and radiator shroud are arranged to form a straight line, with the sharp and edgy angles expressing a feeling of dynamic speed. Like the RM-Z450, the 2019 RM-Z250 is finished in the Team Suzuki off-road colours of yellow with blue accents, making the RM-Z line-up easily recognisable. And the styling is also highly functional, enabling the rider to shift weight forward or backward effortlessly.

Renthal Aluminium Fatbar

Fitted as standard equipment , the top-shelf Renthal aluminium Fatbar offers more strength and less vibration than standard size aluminium handlebars.

KTM Adds More Reasons To Love The 250 SX In 2019

The legendary 2-Stroke KTM 250 SX will return for 2019 in a heavily revised package, boasting a new frame, plus a plethora of handling and engine upgrades. 

Primary power updates are an external power valve adjuster, for easy on-the-fly tuning, plus a new cylinder head exhaust port and all-new exhaust from front to back.

Other engine upgrades include a balance shaft to reduce unwanted vibration and harshness when on the throttle.

The new chassis is stiffer and is shared by all full-size KTM's, and is also slimmer with all new fairings that still preserve the aggressive 250 SX look. Handling is bolstered by the new seat and all-new WP AER 48 forks and rear mono-shock.

CYLINDER

For 2019, the exhaust port has been machined to provide more precise power valve function, improving overall power delivery. By using two supplied springs, the power characteristics can be changed quickly and easily, ensuring the optimal settings for different tracks and rider preference. The lateral cylinder head brackets are now made of aluminum instead of steel and reduce vibration to levels of insignificance.

BALANCER SHAFT

No more numb hands and feet. This engine design allows for the addition of a lateral balancer shaft, which helps keep engine vibrations to a minimum. This means you can keep charging harder, for longer.

IGNITION

All 2-stroke models feature a new CDI control unit with an advanced hardware which improves the starting behavior of the engine. The ignition curves remain unchanged.

EXHAUST

When it comes to improved power delivery and performance, the new exhaust plays a key role and packs a punch that is hard to beat. In addition, its new shape provides slimmer ergonomics while still operating safely within the noise limits for racing.

FRAME

The frame on the KTM 250 SX is brand-new and crafted from hydro formed Chromium Molybdenum steel tubes. It is robot welded for better consistency and improved quality. The improved stiffness has been specifically tailored to balance agile handling and comfort. The revised frame is designed to work in unison with the suspension for excellent high-speed stability. The frame also features "no-dirt" footpegs which have a simple but effective self-cleaning system that ensures the footpegs return to their original position, providing complete control in all conditions. The engine in the KTM 250 SX frame has been raised by 1° around the swing arm pivot, improving the handling and the grip of the front wheel. New aluminum headstays drop weight further. For 2019, all SX frames feature the same highly durable powder coating as the KTM Factory machines and come with standard frame protectors. The lightweight aluminum subframe is 40 mm longer to improve rear fender stability.

SWINGARM

The KTM 250 SX features an improved one-piece swing arm with 5 mm longer axle slots that allow greater wheelbase adjustment to suit varied conditions for tight turns on SX type tracks, or more straight-line stability when it gets fast and rough. Manufactured with a gravity die-cast process, the swingarm has exceptional strength at the lowest possible weight. The chain measurement markings on the swingarm are visible from above, making chain adjustment simpler and more accurate.

WHEELS

KTM uses lightweight, CNC-machined hubs and high-end Excel rims on all SX models, guaranteeing maximum stability and minimum weight. For 2019, the aluminum spoke nipples feature a reworked design, which conveniently reduces the frequency with which the spokes need to be tightened. The wheels are fitted with the latest Dunlop Geomax MX 3S tires, delivering maximum grip and stability and effectively transferring all the power to the ground.

FRONT SUSPENSION

All full-size SX models are fitted with the super-lightweight WP AER 48 front fork. It is a 48 mm USD air-sprung fork with separate functions for each fork leg, meaning damping functions are on the right side and the air spring is on the left. The left leg features a two-chamber system with a capsuled air cartridge, helping prevent loss of air pressure. Essentially, this means that in the rare case of a leaking outer seal, the internal cartridge pressure keeps the bike in a normal position. The air spring is exceptionally easy to use and can be adjusted to any rider weight via a single air valve and the air pump that is supplied with the bike. The right fork leg integrates a damping cartridge to fit single damping leg requirements and can be adjusted to the track conditions and the rider's preferences. (compression from top, rebound from bottom, 30 clicks each). For 2019, new settings on the damping side have improved the damping characteristics, providing great front end feel and control.

REAR SUSPENSION

All SX models feature a DDC monoshock, which has been developed to work as a complete unit with the entire frame and swingarm architecture, as well as the linkage system and the AER 48 forks. It features high-quality machined and anodized components, which add a touch of class and give it appeal beyond just a functional necessity. Internally, the shock houses an updated main piston and new settings that provide improved damping characteristics, perfectly complimenting to the reworked front-end setup. It is fully adjustable, including high and low speed compression, allowing you to set the shock up precisely to suit any track and rider's preferences.

FUEL TANK

All models in the SX range are fitted with newly designed lightweight polyethylene fuel tanks. The fuel capacity on the full-size SX models is still 7 liters, but the new shape improves the ergonomics. The filler cap has an inside thread that makes for easy and reliable closure.

AIRBOX

The new airbox on the KTM 250 SX has been completely reworked to ensure better flow dynamics, and together with new intake snorkels, leads to optimal power and throttle response. Despite the obvious performance enhancements, the new design also offers maximum protection against soiling of the air filter. The large Twin-Air air filter is mounted on a cleverly designed stiff cage that minimizes incorrect installation. As found on previous models, filter maintenance is quick and easy and does not require tools - a standard, original feature from KTM.

SEAT

All SX models have a newly shaped seat, designed to match the improved ergonomics. The seat cover features newly developed silicone strips that provide better feel and grip for the rider. The seat is conveniently fixed to the bike using one long, lateral screw, making it safe and easy to handle.

DECALS

The 2019 SX models feature the latest in-mold graphics, matching the new bodywork perfectly. They have a fast and aggressive style that screams READY TO RACE, leaving no doubt as to the bikes' high-performance intentions.
