lol...the rmz is basically outdated now.. i think most people are waiting for 07' or just getting other bikes like the 06' kxf...i couldnt imagine someone selling there 05' rmz and gettin an 06' rmz, to me thats seems such a waist of money

The 06 RMZ250 gets most of the updates in the engine that the KXF got, except the coil, and the higher compression piston. The KXF and RMZ both received the new head, new cams, tappets and valve spring retainers and collets, different crank halves, some updated gears and shift forks, Also the higher capacity oil pump.

Suzuki didn't change to the higher compression piston in 2006. So the new RM's won't be as likely to have the problems that the new KXF's are having, if they are having them ! Kawasaki and Pro Circuit had blow up problems when modifying, testing and developing the 2004 model because of TOO high of compression. So maybe the BOLD NEW GRAPHICS on the Suzuki with these mods will make them a better bike (less problems) that is than the first year 2006 KXF250.

Got mine couple of weeks ago. I came from the 450's & I'm very pleased with the purchase so far...I have 2hrs on the bike..My only complaint so far is that this bike still comes with the "butter" bars ..lol

I wouldn't really consider the rmz outdated. The only thing i would consider outdated is the suspension, but besides that its a great bike. I have my 05' and love it and if i was in the market for an 06 would stick with the zook.

i dont think many 05 bike owners are gona the the 06 because of the few mods. the main differance is the blue graphics and different seat possitioning.
