2015 Suzuki RM-Z450 Promo Video

Some say the holeshot means everything in motocross competition. Mess it up, and there’s a huge chance you’ll never catch the front of the pack.

Suzuki wants to make things simpler with its all-new 2015 RMZ-450. The bike features Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control, which is technology that alters ignition timing, allowing riders to obtain better launch traction.

And in Suzuki’s new promo video for its 2015 RM-Z450, the Suzuki Holeshot Assist Control – the same technology James Stewart used in 2014 Supercoss – is exploited at Ricky Carmichael’s back yard motocross track.

But this isn’t all that Carmichael exploits in the video attached above; the “GOAT” also talks of the bike’s other enhancements, including the new Showa SFF Air Fork and lighter weight.
