Advanced Electronics Provided.

The 2020 model features an evolved and efficient traction management system. The Electronic Control Module (ECM) continually measures throttle opening, engine speed, and gear position and then adjusts the ignition timing and fuel injector duration to fine-tune the engine output to deliver the best traction for the riding conditions.

Traction management system is different from a street bike traction control system, as it does not measure rear tire spin. Because the needs of a motocrosser are different than a street bike, this system offers constant adjustment that maximizes traction at all times.

The Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control (S-HAC) is a selectable launch system derived from the factory race bike to help riders' takeoff from the starting gate for an early lead. There are three launch modes riders can choose for the best option per their skill level and starting conditions. There are also three stages to Mode A and Mode B of the S-HAC system. This helps riders at the moment of launch, when crossing the gate, and through acceleration to the full speed.
The S-HAC settings for
Mode A specially tuned to aid the rider's throttle control during launches.
Mode B: For skilled riders, and/or good starting conditions, use Mode B for a more aggressive launch.
Base Mode: Standard power launch, no action required on the S-HAC switch.

Designed for motocross use, the lightweight, battery-less, electronic fuel injection system is key to the engine's efficient power delivery.
Easy-to-use fuel couplers are included to simplify EFI tuning.
For quick fuel adjustments to suit riding conditions, two couplers are provided. By plugging in either of two additional fuel-setting couplers to the wire harness, riders can opt for a richer-than-stock or leaner-than-stock fuel setting.

Transmission and Drive Features

The well-sorted, five-speed transmission enables precise gear shift operation. This precise transmission feel is the result of an accurately machined shift cam for exact gear selection. Specialized machining processes also increase the precision of the matching gears.
The multi-plate, wet-clutch uses rack-and-pinion clutch release mechanism for precise feel of the engagement and disengagement points while riding.
The lightweight chain guide is shaped to accurately route the drive chain smoothly.

Chassis Features.

Its twin-spar frame and twin-beam swingarm design continues Suzuki's tradition of delivering the best-handling motocross machines available.

The trim rear brake master cylinder hugs the frame beam to reduce dirt contamination and the chance of the rider's boot touching it during riding.
To support the strong engine, braking, and handling performance of the RM-Z450, the bike is fitted with racetrack-developed Bridgestone Battlecross X30 tires.
The wheels feature black anodized rims with a cross-section design that maintains strength while reducing un-sprung weight.
Suzuki beak-inspired styling has a sharper front fender and radiator shrouds blending into side covers and an upswept tail, to promote the impression of speed while reducing weight and easing service.
The functional styling and the motorcycle's trim chassis permit a variety of rider positions that facilitate control and comfort.
Plastic fuel tank weighs a half-pound less than the prior generation's aluminum tank. Fuel capacity is an ample 1.7 US gallons.

The Championship Yellow bodywork is enhanced with a new 2020 graphics package that features distinctive striping and Suzuki logos.
