But the rider otherwise is kept very comfortable, especially by the chassis. The Suzuki corners like it’s on rails, with the front wheel always maintaining excellent grip without trying to push or knife. Neither does the bike want to dive too low or stand up when blasting through corners; it simply does what the rider asks. Suddenly changing direction is never an issue, either; the chassis quickly and willingly responds to that kind of rider input. Due to that exceptional responsiveness, the RM-Z is not the most stable of these seven in a straight line; but the bike never gets out of hand, instead allowing the rider to develop more and more confidence lap after lap. So, too, is the suspension’s behavior outstanding, even if the fork did prove a bit soft for our heavier testers.
