Suzuki DR-Z400S - Our most popular model.

Suzuki DR-Z400S

Dual-sport is changed forever. The DR-Z400S takes the concept of a street legal dirt bike and makes it reality. Based on the DR-Z400E, the DR-Z400S uses the same advanced four-stroke engine and agile chassis to form a motorcycle with outstanding characteristics.

Additional equipment makes the DR-Z400S fully street legal, including a halogen headlight, compact tail and stop lamp, lightweight turn signals, and a horn. Unique to the DR-Z400S is a compact digital instrument cluster that features a speedometer, odometer, two trip meters, clock, timer and stopwatch functions.

Explore the possibilities. You ve never had as much fun, on or off-road, as you ll have with the DR-Z400S.

Suzuki V-Strom DL1000

A motorcycle that stands in a category of it s own: The Sport-Adventure Tourer. Named for its V-Twin engine and a stream of wind, or Strom in German, the V-Strom is built for the rider with a sense of adventure and a young spirit. With a proven V-Twin power plant, easy handling, sporty styling and comfortable, relaxed riding position, the DL1000 promises to deliver a new adventure every time you ride.

High mounted dual exhaust, knuckle covers, large comfortable seat and sporty front fairing, combined with engine undercover, gives the DL1000 an adventurous look.

A liquid-cooled 90-degree V-Twin with four valves per cylinder produces 996cc of displacement. Digital fuel injection and engine management systems are designed to deliver exceptionally linear throttle response and better fuel economy.

The DL1000 s advanced aluminum-alloy twin-spar frame is lighter than the steel frames and combines with an aluminum-alloy swingarm. Seat height is a reasonable 830mm (33.1 inch) and dry weight is the lightest in the class at 207 kg (456 pound). Dual 310mm floating front brake discs work with dual-piston calipers.
