IT'S BACK: Suzuki's 2020 Katana Unsheathed!

On October 2nd, 2018 at the International Motorcycle Show (Intermot) Cologne, Suzuki Motor Corporation unveiled the 2020 KATANA.

Forged to perfection and polished to a magnificent radiance with sharp lines and design cues paying homage to the iconic 1981 GSX1100S KATANA, the new KATANA is destined to create a new legend.

The KATANA symbolises Suzuki’s uncompromising commitment to craftsmanship and dedication to creating distinctive beauty including paying due respect to tradition while at the same time aiming to incorporate the latest advances in styling and technology.

At the heart of the KATANA’s powerful performance is a long-stroke 999cm3 inline-four cylinder engine producing 110kW (150PS) power at 10,000rpm with 108Nm of torque at 9,500rpm. Both the induction roar and exhaust note are tuned to heighten the visceral senses, whilst also contributing to performance and combustion efficiency.

Power is transferred to the tarmac through a back-torque-limiting clutch, Suzuki’s three-mode traction control system and new Dunlop Sportmax Roadsport 2 tyres featuring an inner structure designed exclusively for the new KATANA.

The compact, lightweight twin-spar aluminium chassis is engineered to provide agility, ease of control and a fun-to-ride character riders will enjoy. It is also aimed to perform best in real world riding conditions on public roads, in city traffic, on the highway, or on rural and twisty roads.

43mm KYB inverted front forks give a ride that is sporty yet plush. They feature fully adjustable damping, rebound, compression and spring preload. A single KYB rear shock features adjustable rebound damping and spring pre-load.

310mm Fujico disc brakes are paired with Brembo radial mount Monobloc front brake calipers featuring four opposing Ø32mm pistons to provide powerful braking performance. The BOSCH Antilock Brake System (ABS) control unit is extremely compact and light weighing only 640g.

Distinctive styling points abound. The LED headlight and LED front position lights accent the sharp lines of the cowling that covers the custom-designed instrument panel.

A black and grey two-tone seat features a stepped design that maintains the sleek profile of the KATANA while ensuring a comfortable riding position and positive footing for the rider. Passenger comfort is also a priority, with the seat strap design ensuring secure grip.

The KATANA introduces a small rear fender supported by the swingarm that hugs the rear tyre. Moving it, along with the rear LED indicators and license plate holder, to this position eliminates parts extending from under the seat to give the tail section cleaner lines and a tougher, lighter new look.

The 2020 Suzuki KATANA is expected to arrive in Australia during the third quarter of 2019 with final specifications and pricing being announced closer to launch.

BMW Reveal New R 1250 GS and RT Models

The new BMW R 1250 GS and R 1250 RT – the fascination of travel and touring in a new dimension of engine power.

For more than 35 years, the flat-twin boxer engine in the BMW Motorrad GS and RT models has stood for distinctive, powerful and reliable propulsion when it comes to setting off on an extended tour or a long-distance journey – or simply enjoying the satisfying pleasure of a short weekend trip. For more than 25 years, BMW Motorrad has used 4-valve technology, combined with electronic fuel injection and closed-loop catalytic converter technology in order to achieve the best possible power and torque delivery, efficiency and environmental compatibility.

Further advanced boxer engine with BMW ShiftCam Technology for an additional increase in power across the entire engine speed range, reduced emission and fuel consumption levels, optimised running smoothness and refinement.

With the extensively further advanced boxer engine, the new R 1250 GS and R 1250 RT not only achieve a whole new level of power and torque. It was also possible to significantly optimise refinement and running smoothness – especially within the lower engine speed range. What is more, the new engine offers improved emission and fuel consumption levels as well as a particularly satisfying sound. For this purpose, BMW ShiftCam Technology has been used for the first time in the serial production of BMW Motorrad engines: this enables variation of the valve timings and valve stroke on the intake side. In addition, the intake camshafts are designed for asynchronous opening of the two intake valves, resulting in enhanced swirl of the fresh, incoming mixture and therefore more effective combustion. Other technical changes to the engine relate to the camshaft drive – now taken care of by a toothed chain (previously a roller chain) – an optimised oil supply, twin-jet injection valves and a new exhaust system.

Two riding modes, ASC and Hill Start Control as standard.

There are two riding modes available as standard in order to be able to adapt the motorcycle to individual rider preferences. The standard Automatic Stability Control ASC ensures a high level of riding safety due to the best possible traction. The set-off assistant Hill Start Control is likewise a standard feature in both models, enabling convenient set-off on slopes.

Riding Modes Pro, featuring additional riding modes, Dynamic Traction Control DTC, ABS Pro, Hill Start Control Pro and Dynamic Brake Assistant DBC (new), available as an optional equipment item ex works.

Electronic suspension Dynamic ESA "Next Generation" with fully automatic load compensation, now also for the R 1250 RT.

With the optional equipment item BMW Motorrad Dynamic ESA "Next Generation", damping automatically adapts to the situation according to riding state and manoeuvres, and there is also automatic compensation in all load states. This allows finely tuned adaptation of the motorcycle to riding states, achieving optimum damping comfort and a very stable ride response – this is now also available for the R 1250 RT.

LED headlamp for the R 1250 GS as standard and LED daytime riding light for both models as an ex works optional equipment item.

The new R 1250 GS now features the LED headlamp as standard. In addition to this, the LED daytime riding light is available as an optional equipment item for both the R 1250 GS and the R 1250 RT, which has halogen headlamps.

Connectivity: multifunctional instrument cluster with 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen and numerous features as standard in the R 1250 GS.

The new R 1250 GS now has the equipment feature Connectivity as standard including a 6.5-inch full-colour TFT screen. In conjunction with the standard BMW Motorrad Multi-Controller, this means the rider can access vehicle and connectivity functions particularly swiftly and conveniently.

The R 1250 RT is fitted with a large 5.7-inch TFT colour screen. This is supplemented with an analog speedometer and rev counter.

Intelligent Emergency Call as an ex works option.

Ensuring the fastest possible assistance in the event of an accident or in situations of emergency and danger can save people's lives. The optional equipment item Intelligent Emergency Call summons assistance to the scene as quickly as possible. As before, this feature can be ordered for both models.

BMW Motorrad Spezial – high-quality customisation features as optional equipment items ex works.

BMW Motorrad Spezial offers a range of iconic customisation features that enhance both performance and value, available as optional equipment items ex works. The focus is on harmonious integration in the vehicle as a whole, use of the very highest-quality materials, elaborate manual workmanship and characteristic attention to detail. The Billets Packs Option 719 Classic and HP are available for the new R 1250 GS and R 1250 RT, for example. The new R 1250 RT can be additionally enhanced with Option 719 wheels Classic or Sport, an exclusive seat and one of two Spezial paint finishes. An HP sports silencer is likewise available ex works for the two new boxer models.

New attractive colours and style variants.

The new R 1250 GS showcases its travel and off-road prowess in two modern basic finishes and two striking style variants. The new R 1250 RT embodies its exclusive touring character in one basic colour, two style variants and two Option 719 Spezial finishes.

Design And Colour Concept

The new R 1250 GS: travel and off-road prowess in two modern basic finishes and two striking style variants.

The new BMW R 1250 GS conveys its refined character and universal talents with two new colours in the basic version and the style variants Exclusive and HP. The presence of a new power unit is demonstrated by means of newly designed cylinder head covers bearing the inscription "ShiftCam" as well as the pipe ducting of the new exhaust manifold system.

Basic version in Blackstorm metallic and Cosmic Blue metallic: Each of the finishes Cosmic Blue metallic and Blackstorm metallic give the new R 1250 GS a pronounced modern appearance, combining the standard cast wheels in Granite Grey metallic matt with black brake calipers, a black rear frame, a silver main frame, silver handlebars and a silver drivetrain as well as a luggage bridge in White Aluminium matt with trim holder in Nu¨rburg Silver. The Telelever slider tubes anodized in gold emphasise the off-road talents of the new R 1250 GS. The two body finishes are to be found on the central fuel tank cover and the front wheel cover. Here, the fuel tank side trim elements in Asphalt Grey metallic provide a touch of contrast. The radiator trim in galvanised plastic adds a quality accentuation, as does the new model inscription.

R 1250 GS Exclusive:

In the style variant Exclusive and the new colour combination Blackstorm metallic / Night Black, the new R 1250 GS blends classic understatement and masculine character with a commanding presence and elegance. The drivetrain coated in black matt provides the perfect counterpart to the main frame in Agate Grey metallic matt as well as the black rear frame and the black anodized tube handlebars. 

R 1250 GS HP:

In the style version HP the new R 1250 GS emphasises its sporty ambitions, dynamically showcasing its off-road expertise as a travel enduro with the colour combination Light White/Racing Blue metallic/Racing Red.

Light White is to be found on the main frame and in combination with graphics on the fuel tank side trim elements and front wheel cover, while Racing Blue is applied to the central fuel tank cover.

R 1250 RT: exclusive touring character in three attractive colour versions and two style versions.

As compared to the predecessor model, the engine spoiler has been newly designed and an additional front spoiler has been added. Another striking visual feature is the pipe ducting of the new exhaust manifold system. Along with these body modifications, there are also three attractive colour and style variants as well as two additional special finishes available for the new R 1250 RT, each creating a powerfully distinctive character.

Basic version in Alpine White:

This traditional BMW Motorrad colour gives the R 1250 RT a timeless and at the same time dynamic look. As in all other versions, a newly designed model inscription is applied here. Cylinder head covers with the lettering "ShiftCam" – a reference to the new engine generation – set it apart from the predecessor model at first sight. 

Option 719 Spezial finishes in Blue Planet metallic and Sparkling Storm metallic:

A particularly intense metallic effect is created by the two Spezial colours Blue Planet metallic and Sparkling Storm metallic. The body colour is to be found on the central fuel tank cover, the left and right-hand fuel tank covering, the trim on the case lids, the front, rear and side trim section and also on the front spoiler, front wheel cover and knee cover. Chrome elements such as the handlebar weights and windshield trim element underscore the luxurious character of the new R 1250 RT.

R 1250 RT Sport:

In this style variant with the colour combination Mars Red metallic / Slate Dark metallic matt, the new R 1250 RT reveals its sporty, dynamic qualities. Here the new engine is highlighted by means of cylinder head covers in Agate Grey metallic matt, while the R 1250 RT Sport is fitted with a shortened windshield as a sporty feature, though customers can replace this with the standard windshield if they wish.

R 1250 RT Elegance:

This style variant emphasises the elegant appearance of the new R 1250 RT by means of a body finish in Carbon Black metallic. The wheels finished in Silver metallic with a drivetrain in Aluminium Silver metallic add a powerful contrast as well as a touch of refinement. Homogeneous accentuations are provided by the central fuel tank cover and knee cover in Granite Grey metallic matt.




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.
