Suzuki RM Z 250 - The Legendary Racing Machine is Back

The legendary Racing Machine is Zooming back in to the country.

Yes, it true.  It was announced in their Suzuki Big Bikes Store in Wheeltek about two new motorcycles that will be launched this year.  Oh yeah oh yeah!  I cannot even remember what the other one was, my head is still reeling in from the news that a Suzuki motocross bike would soon be making a comeback and that's the mythical RM-Z.

Mr. Butch Chase, Golden Wheel hall of famer motocross racer recalls the first moments when he rode the Suzuki RM.  A legendery racer with a legendary bike.  Perfect!

I am now awaiting to have a go with this machine, and eagerly tell you all about it.


Oh yes, they made a video presentation of it, and me gusta! It's official that's it's gonna be tearing down dirt tracks here in PH.
