Suzuki RM 125 was first introduced in 1974, but models from 1990 onwards are of the greatest interest, when the model received an inverted fork and became widely available in the markets of North America, Europe and Japan.
In the following years, the model underwent many changes that concerned the engine, intake system, suspension, geometry and chassis. 2008 was the last year of production for the Suzuki RM125, after which the model left the market and was completely replaced by the 4-stroke Suzuki RM-Z250.
The key features of the Suzuki RM 125 include a steel half-duplex frame, a 2-stroke liquid-cooled engine, sports adjustable suspensions in the form of an inverted fork at the front and a progressive swingarm with a mono-shock absorber at the rear, disc brakes, a 6-speed gearbox, a power valve system, a fuel tank for 8 liters and 87 kg dry matter.
The "older" model is Suzuki RM 250.
