Motocross racers are always on the hunt for a bike that they can use to compete in a variety of races all over the world. If you’ve got Suzuki in your sights, then you can do yourself a favor and choose the new RM-Z250 to achieve your goal.

When it comes to all-around motocross racing versatility, the RM-Z250 comes with plenty of that and more. The compact and lightweight 249cc, fuel-injected, DOHC, titanium four-valve, semi-dry-sump, four-stroke engine produces enough power to make it a competitive motocross racer. Couple that with a five-speed transmission that provides extra flexibility, an advanced, battery-less fuel-injection (FI) system that features a 44mm throttle body with progressive throttle linkage, and a 16-bit computer, and you have an engine set-up that can be as competitive as any other motocross bike on the market.

In addition to its impressive engine configuration, the RM-Z250 also differentiates itself with a twin-spar aluminum frame and an aluminum swing arm that has been developed and refined for a highly optimized balance between rigidity and superb high-speed traction. Adding to the mix is class-leading Showa suspension components that allow for a comfortable and easy-to-use ride. Race-inspired brake disc rotors are also offered, enhancing cooling performance and efficient mud slinging
while footpeg brackets have been shaped to help prevent mud from clogging.

With superb power and state-of-the-art handling characteristics, the RM-Z250 is also a picture of comfort. A gripper seat, with projected cross-shaped patterns on the top surface, provide additional grip while high-quality Renthal handlebars featuring a tapered design are fixed to the rubber mounted triple clamp, ensuring that riders are well-equipped when they’re riding motocross competitions around the world.

Want to buy a Suzuki Hayabusa that probably still has the ass print of one Jennifer Lopez? Yeah, we thought so.

This special edition supersports bike was ridden by J.Lo during the filming of a Pepsi commercial featuring her and an equally bootylicious Beyonce. We’d love to have both in our garage, but we’ll settle for one of them.

If you’re interested in the limited edition Pepsi Hayabusa with a special paint finish, an LED lighting underbody, and just 100 miles tacked on its meter, it is now for sale. Sure, the commercial was filmed back in 2004 and the Hayabusa has sat idly still since then, but it’s still a Hayabusa - a special edition at that - and a lot of those 100 miles come courtesy of the recently single Jennifer Lopez. For the record, the version used by Beyonce during the commercial was already sold at a private auction sometime back and went for a tidy five-digit sum.

We don’t know about you, but paying £19,995 - $32,500 - for the chance to own probably one of the most desirable bikes on the planet is a chance that’s too good to pass up.

The only thing we need to worry about now is finding that kind of money to spend.

There’s a saying that records are always meant to be broken and Bill Warner recently proved that in scintillating fashion.

With a high-powered Suzuki motorcycle, the resident of Wimauma, Florida used the Loring Timing Association Land Speed Race as the site of his record-breaking run, becoming the fastest man on a motorcycle with a top speed of 311.945 mph.

What’s more impressive than Warner breaking the record at such a sprightly age is the fact that he completely blew away the existing record of 273.356 mph with relative ease.

The event was organized to host a number of record-setting attempts, but none came in a more convincing fashion than the way Warner blew past the existing mark, even if the attempt brought some certifiable danger to it. It certainly goes without saying that breaking 300 mph on a motorcycle presents certain dangers, including the ability to keep the bike in control at such high speeds. "The bike was bouncing, hopping, skipping and sliding," Warner said. "Needless to say, I got it stopped safely. It was a little scary."

Congratulations to Warner for his record-setting achievement. Just goes to show that with a lot of hard work, coupled with some luck, any record can be broken on any given day.

It’s been quite the weekend for Suzuki , hasn’t it? On the same day that Nobuhiro “Monster” Tajima broke his own record at the 2011 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb while driving a Suzuki SX4 Hill Climb Special, the Japanese auto and motorcycle builder also went ahead and unveiled their latest product: the 2012 V-Strom 650 ABS.

Among the changes made on the new V-Strom 650 include a bevy of aesthetic and aerodynamic improvements that should get fans of the bike up and excited over the 2012 version.

For starters, the bike’s windscreen is now adjustable in three positions and the new V-Strom-embossed logo now sits 15mm higher than its predecessor, improving rider comfort by giving them the chance to stretch their legs a little more. Likewise, the air outlets on the both sides of the cowlings further improves the bike’s cooling and wind protection, while also giving it a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Even the muffler and the rear luggage rack each sport new designs with the latter now made out of resin material, as opposed to the aluminum make of the existing model.

The new V-Strom 650 also gets a new liquid-cooled oil cooler, which should help in stabilizing oil temperatures, thus improving the bike’s engine reliability.

As for the engine, Suzuki also gave the 2012 V-Strom 650 a new V-Twin, 645cc engine that further improves the bike’s overall performance, especially in the low-to-mid rpm range.

All in all, the 2012 Suzuki V-Strom 650 takes all the elements of its predecessor and completely improves them. The new model is even 13 lbs lighter than the previous version, making for a lighter, more powerful, and more rounded bike.

About three weeks ago, Suzuki revealed the first teaser images of a new "Middle-class Motorcycle ." And while the car won’t make its public debut until EICMA show in Milan this November, the company has decided to reveal the first images and details on their new "mystery" bike. It will indeed be the updated version of the V-Strom 650 as previously rumored.

For 2012, the V-Storm 650 will be powered by a V-twin engine that delivers a total of 68 HP at 8,800rpm and 60 Nm of torque at 6,400rpm, plus a 10% fuel consumption improvement over the previous model.

Design improvements include a reshaped and 15mm-taller seat, an updated upper fairing and three-position, a new muffler, and a height-adjustable windscreen. Three-spoke aluminum alloy wheels will be offered as standard together with a new multi-function instrument cluster with an analogue tachometer and a brightness adjustable LCD screen.

The new model will be offered in two different colors: Pearl Mirage White or Metallic Fox Orange. Prices will start at $8,099.

Japanese maker, Suzuki, has revealed the first teaser images of their new motorcycle that, according to the first details, is being referred to as the "Middle-class New Motorcycle." While most of the rumors suggest the new bike will be making its debut at the EICMA show in Milan this November, Suzuki has promised to offer more details on June 11.

This is all Suzuki is revealing at this point, but recent rumors have suggested that the teaser images actually preview the next generation V-Storm. The first teasers said it was "Time For Real Adventures", so this might suggest an off-road version of the V-Storm. However, no matter what are we looking at, the teaser images sure look promising with the motorcycle’s tall windscreen and cat-eye headlamp, as well as the tall handlebars, electronically adjustable windscreen, single rear exhaust, passenger grab-handles on the sides, and a shroud for the muffler.

Suzuki’s popular V-Strom 650 adventure range sees the arrival of a new flagship model this month, with the launch of the V-Strom 650 XPEDITION.

Based on the hugely capable V-Strom 650 ABS model, the new tougher XP version, boasts a host of additions, providing a comprehensive list of practical accessories at unrivalled value.

Featuring hard-wearing black aluminum panniers with a total carrying capacity of 82 liters, the XP is the tough and effective alternative, thanks to the provision of engine and hand guards, centre-stand and an aluminum sump guard as part of its unique specification.

Suzuki’s GSX-R1000 became the fastest road racing Superbike on the planet earlier this month, as Relentless Suzuki by TAS racer, Bruce Anstey, recorded an astonishing 133.977mph average lap speed in the final race of the Ulster Grand Prix.

Riding in the prestigious event that uses the closed-off roads around Dundrod in Northern Ireland, Anstey bravely piloted the GSX-R1000 around the 7.4 mile circuit, smashing the previous record in front of a 30,000 strong-crowd.

Talking about his amazing lap record, London-based Kiwi, Bruce, said,"I knew the Relentless Suzuki by TAS GSX-R1000 was fast, but even I didn’t think we could go this quickly. We finished second in the opening race which was a little disappointing, so I got my head down in the final Superbike race and pushed as hard as I could. It was a close battle, but we took the win and proved that the GSX-R1000 is the fastest, which is especially nice during the 25th anniversary year".

With performance credentials that have established it as the hottest sportbike on the planet, the Suzuki Hayabusa is designed for the serious sport rider who will settle for nothing less than the best. Its combination of unsurpassed power, crisp handling and superb aerodynamics creates the ultimate sportbike. You could say that the 2011 Hayabusa is so intense, that it’s in a class of its own. For 2011 Hayabusa will get new colors and graphics (Pearl Mirage White with gold trim and Pearl Nebular Black with red trim).

The 2011 Suzuki Hayabusa is powered by a 1340cc, in-line, DOHC liquid-cooled engine with 16-valves engine and gets a a large volume 4-2-1-2 exhaust system with a large capacity catalyzer, dual triangular canisters and closed loop system. The Hayabusa comes with an optimized 6-speed transmission. Oil spray to the 4th, 5th and 6th gears reduce wear and mechanical noise during highway cruising.

UPDATE 09/12/2011: Depending on where your allegiances lie, the Underground Racing-tuned Lamborghini Gallardo TT can be described as the Suzuki Hayabusa of the auto tuning world and vice versa. But if you’re looking for something obscenely fast, can you really go wrong picking one over the other?

The short and simple answer is no. So to illustrate just how incredibly powerful these two machines are, the folks from Underground Racing and the people behind the tuned Hayabusa - Shamrock Racing - met up to see of these beasts has bigger claws. Check out the video after the jump to see two mind-blowing machines in action!

Mulholland a.k.a. The Snake seems to have a bad relation with motorcycles in general and GSX-Rs in particular as the highway’s often challenging curves happen to throw off the seats even the most experienced riders. We’re not sure if that’s the case with the next two examples that we came across, but they’re enough to make a point. The first rider lowsides and the second highsides, both while riding a Suzuki GSX-R on the same section of The Snake. Hit the jump to see the videos.
