Suzuki DR-Z Range
The next generation of Australia's favourite trail enduro bike range is now arriving in Suzuki dealerships.

The 2015 DR650SE, DR-Z400E and DR-Z250 are set to add another chapter to one of the brand's most famous nameplates.

The DR-Z400E and DR-Z250 draw inspiration from the championship winning RM-Z range, with an exciting new color scheme of Champion Yellow and Black, while the road-ready DR650SE comes in a bold solid white/iron grey livery.

Featuring powerful four-stroke engines, agile handling and a rugged chassis ready to tackle all conditions, the DR range has carved an enviable reputation for reliability and fuss-free riding.

All models are also 100% street-legal and learner approved, making them ideal for new riders looking for a motorcycle suitable for work and play.

The 2015 DR-Z250 features a 249cc DOHC engine, for a broad power range and abundant low-rev torque, while the proven Suzuki Advanced Cooling System (SACS) maintains optimum engine temperatures.

The aluminium cylinder is plated with race tested Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coating for weight reduction and better heat transfer. It comes with a slick-shifting six-speed transmission and a large, four litre airbox with quick release fasteners for easy maintenance.

A rider-friendly chassis is complemented by long travel front forks with 12-way compression and 17-way rebound damping force adjustment. The remote-reservoir shock absorber also features fully adjustable compression and rebound damping force and spring preload.

Inspired by the RM-Z, the DR-Z250 comes with a powerful braking system featuring a large front disc brake with twin-piston caliper while the rear brake comes with a guard to protect the caliper and disc.

The DR-Z400E comes with a 398cc DOHC engine for those riders wanting even more power. It is matched with a digitally mapped DC-CDI system that monitors engine speed and throttle position to automatically adjust ignition timing for maximum efficiency.

A rider-friendly electric start ensures fuss-free riding in all conditions, while handling is covered by the long travel 48mm stanchion tube front forks and progressive linkage rear suspension, which are both fully adjustable.

Giving riders plenty of low-to-mid range torque, the DR650SE is powered by a 644cc, four-stroke, air-cooled engine, with Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coated cylinder to minimise wear.

The combination of a powerful engine and lightweight frame offers agile handling and a comfortable and enjoyable ride, on or off road. Comfort is also enhanced by a streamlined seat with 40mm variable seat height position and a vibration- reducing balancer system within the engine.

A rigid frame and short wheelbase provide off-road maneuverability, while loads of tractable horsepower from the big grunty engine translates into effortless high- speed cruising.

The DR range of motorcycles has always been synonymous with value and the 2015 range stays true to that brand promise.

Indeed, retail pricing remains unchanged from last year, with the DR-Z250 starting from $6,990*, the DR-Z400E for $7990* and the DR650SE topping the range at $8090*.

* Recommended Price excludes dealer delivery and government charges.
