Suzuki RM-Z450 -- Salman Khan's bike in movie Jai Ho


Salman Khan’s new movie Jai Ho features Suzuki’s RM-z450 Motocross bike. In the movie Salman can been seen doing various stunts with this bike on regular tarmac roads. So what is this bike that we have never seen anywhere in India yet?

It’s quite obvious we haven’t seen in anywhere on the streets in India nor in any TV commercials. The RM-Z450 is Suzuki’s state-of-the art and flagship Motocross bike. This bike is available in the USat a price upwards of $8,699 (approx. Rs 6 lacs). Suzuki haven’t launched this bike in India yet. The bike featured in the movie since Salman Khan is the brand ambassador for Suzuki Motorcycle India.



The RM-Z450 was awarded the “BEST MOTOCROSSER” by Cycle World two times in 2011 and 2012. Cycle World praised this motocrosser for smooth throttle response, powerful engine and excellent handling. In 2013, the engine was refined thoroughly giving it more power than ever . New front suspension was introduced featuring the innovative new Separate Function front Fork (SFF) from Showa.




The bike has some hi-tech features which are best in its class.


  • An advanced battery-less fuel-injection (FI) system features a 12-hole fuel injector and progressive throttle linkage for instant throttle response. 
  • Aluminum cylinder, with Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coating, is designed for durability, light weight and efficient heat transfer. 
  • Compact and lightweight 4-stroke, 449cc, fuel-injected, DOHC engine provides extraordinary torque for awesome acceleration from idle to redline, with incredible high-rpm power.
