2003 Suzuki RM60Edit

 

The RM60 is a new entry-level machine designed for young riders just starting in Motocross. The liquid-cooled 60cc reed-valve engine is tuned to produce a wide, friendly powerband with emphasis on low-to-midrange power. This was actually just a re-badged Kawasaki KX60 due to Suzuki and Kawasaki's model sharing agreement.
