Did you know that the 1972 Suzuki TM-250J Champion was nick named the “Champion” because of Joel Robert who rode his works 1971 RH250 to an MX world championship? The five speed TM 250 was actually based on Suzuki’s enduro model. The original plastic and tank was Suzuki (Aspen) yellow, however we like Klaus’s white scheme!
