If you look up the word “two-stroke” in a dictionary, esta es la máquina que debe ver. los 2005 RM250 se cuadró al menor contacto del acelerador y arrancó a través de la banda de potencia a toda velocidad. Fue la antítesis exacta de la nueva ola de golpeadores apoderando del deporte.

El Rey de chispa. Después de décadas de desempeñar un papel secundario en el sorteo de energía, Suzuki finalmente dio en el clavo dulce 2005. El molino de 249cc ladró desde el primer giro del acelerador y siguió tirando hasta que las vacas llegaron a casa.

Era más rápido revoluciones y menos suave que la Yamaha eléctrica, pero igual de efectiva en la pista.

A finales de 2004, Suzuki pulled the coup of the century by snagging Ricky Carmichael away from Honda. Amazingly, after delivering five titles in three years (the only one he did not win, was the one he pulled out of due to injury), Honda declined to re-sign the GOAT and Suzuki was more than happy to grab up the winningest rider in AMA history. En 2005, RC would reward Suzuki with its first Supercross title in 24 años.

During this period of blue domination, Suzuki was carving out its own particular niche as the King of zing. Unlike the YZ, which ran (dare I say it) almost like a four-stroke, the RM was all about hard hit and quick turnover. It was snappy, quick and explosive. This power was perfect for Supercross and while not as easy to use as the YZ, very competitive. Where the RM fell short of the class leading YZ, was in the breadth of its power.

After its explosive low to mid hit, the RM demanded another shift, while the YZ could be stretched out to the next turn. If Suzuki were going to claw away the title of class champ, they would need to reinvent their one-dimensional power plant.

This is one damn fine looking motorcycle. In my opinion, every Factory RM of this body style was a looker. From the Sobe bikes to the Makita years, the works RM’s were on point in the early 2000’s.

The shock on the ’05 RM was just as sweet as the forks, and head and shoulders at the top of the class. Spring rates were spot on for motocross use and in the ballpark for anyone short of an AMA pro. The Showa unit tracked straight in the rough, floated though the whoops and craved the big hit.

It never kicked, hopped and took the rider by surprise. This was one very well sorted out rear end.

It is fitting that perhaps the most “two-stroke” 250 ever made would be the last one to ever win a major US SX/MX title. The ’05 RM embodied everything that made two-strokes fun and distilled it down to a perfect combination of fun and fury. It was the quickest of the quick and the sharpest of the sharp.

It made riding fun and winning easy; what more could you ask from a motocross machine?
