The Suzuki RM 250 was first introduced in 1976 - a motorcycle of this generation has a rather archaic (by modern standards) appearance, simple suspensions, drum brakes and an air-cooled engine.
In the 1980s, the model was updated, taking on the more familiar traits of motocross motorcycles and receiving a new liquid-cooled engine, and by 1989, an inverted fork. It is from this generation (late 80s - early 90s) that it is advisable to consider the Suzuki RM250 model.
In the 90s and 2000s, the Suzuki RM250 also underwent several restyling, which concerned the appearance, engine and chassis (tuning and geometry of the suspensions), but the main technical parameters remained unchanged - a steel semi-double frame, sports adjustable suspensions in the form of an inverted fork type front and progressive swingarm with monoshock at the rear, 2-stroke liquid-cooled engine, disc brakes, carburetor power system, 5-speed gearbox and 96 kg dry weight.
2008 was the last year of production of the model, after which it finally left the market and gave way to the 4-stroke version - Suzuki RM-Z250.
