First Impression: 2010 Suzuki RM-Z450

It’s been a long time coming, but we finally got our hands on the new and improved 2010 RM-Z450. With changes made to the chassis, suspension, and motor, the new Zook might look the same as last year’s, but packs a considerable punch. We enlisted our long-time test rider and former Suzuki R&D rider Rich Taylor for the initial day of testing. As you’ll find in the video below, he brought an interesting perspective to the bike, giving some excellent background information into why the changes were made. As always, don’t forget to check out an upcoming issue of TransWorld Motocross for the full test. We have a lot more riding to do aboard the new bike.
