Garage Build: 2018 Suzuki RM-Z450

The 2018 Suzuki RM-Z450 isn’t far off, but it is in desperate need of a few updates to stay relevant.

The front fork was atrocious, it was heavy, and the motor was just a little bit down on power compared to its adversaries. Oh, and an electric start would have been great. The 2018 RM-Z450 offered changes, but the improvements were marginal, the weight didn’t change much, and it still had a kickstarter. We made it our goal to make the fixes we could on our own.
