We flew to Japan in October to take our first ride on the 2019 Suzuki RM-Z250, but the track was a bit of a quagmire thanks to rain storms in the days preceding our test. The bikes have begin to land on US shores and today, we took our first real test ride on the all-new machine at Cahuilla Creek MX Park during the Insideline Connect Media Camp. The bike was impressive on all fronts, and both Editor In Chief Donn Maeda and pro test rider Mike Sleeter came away pleasantly surprised. In this episode of Swapmoto Live presented by Ogio, the two discuss their likes and dislikes about the RM-Z250, as well as some interesting things about production bike testing and setup. Enjoy the show! As always, we’d love suggestions or comments below!
