1996 Suzuki
This photo was taken in December 2005, the day I
picked up my brand new GMC Sonoma, and then
drove across the street to pick up this brand new 1996
RMX250. It was my second RMX, which I was
convinced I needed to own because the front
suspension was updated to conventional forks. The
rest of the bike was pretty much the same as the 1994
version, although they did slightly uncork the exhaust
for 1996.

The RMX was Suzuki's last serious 2-stroke off-road
bike. While the motocross 2-strokes continued for
several years later, eventually they followed the lead
of the other Japanese motorcycle manufacturers and
converted their MX and off-road fleets to 4-strokes.
