Also, the ’86 RM250G had a new and frame. Suzuki says the amount of frame parts has decreased to less than The Full Floater rear was new, both swing and the system.

The bike presented seat height although the clearance was increased.

Test Drive

Before I writing anything about the of my test drive I would to tell you that I have put a lot of time, and trail time it and my conclusion was: Wow! I never ridden anything out the production that would close to the awesome performance and of the Suzuki RM250. The bike extremely well, balancing traditional quick turning with reasonable straight-line and it has the best motor yet.
