Additional photos of this Suzuki RM400 are available here for your perusal.
Suzuki released the RM (“racing motorcycles”) line in 1975 to replace the TM series, which bikes ranging in size from 50cc to 400cc. 1978 was the first year for the RM400, though it was completely redesigned just a year later. Per PulpMX, “Virtually everything from the old bike had been tweaked or modified to improve performance. Cosmetically the radically laid down shocks, new tank, and rearward mounted numberplates made the new RM look years removed from its older brother. Even today these RM’s are considered excellent vintage racers.”
This example is VIN: RM400111005, Engine# (RM400111005). The seller purchased this bike 20 years ago from a private party.
There is no odometer, true mileage is unknown.
The seller’s plan was to restore it but he hasn’t had the time and realizes he won’t get to it so he wants it to find a new home. It does not run and is being sold as a no-reserve project.
The exhaust has an exhaust labeled “KX125”.
