Fuel-injection will reach the MX2 motocross class in the last quarter of 2009 with the introduction of the 2010 Suzuki RM-Z250.
Suzuki was the first to introduce a fuel-injected production motocrosser two years ago with the launch of the a href="http://www.motoring.co.za/index.php?fSectionId=759&fArticleId=4399960" target="_blank">RM-Z450; soon MX2 riders will have the same benefits.
No decision has yet been made as to when it will be released in South Africa but don't expect to see it before early 2010. Prices, as always, when they get here.
The RM-Z250's battery-less system is derived from that of the 450, with a 43mm throttle body, a progressive throttle linkage to reduce the dreaded spritzer snatch and a 16-bit engine control unit, all powered by a compact magneto-generator.
