The 2013 Suzuki DR-Z 400S is ideal for favorite off-road trail, and getting there won’t be a problem. The amount of torque coming from the 398cc liquid-cooled powerplant, as well as the crisp handling from the adjustable suspension will win your heart over in just one ride. Introduced for the first time in 2000, this completely street-legal has an electric start and easy-to-read instrument cluster, so you’ll be set to go whether you’re on road or dirt. Because the motorcycle has seen such tremendous success, Suzuki has found little need to make changes, and who can blame them? It’s primed for street and dirt, right off the production line.
The liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine provides strong low-rpm torque and crisp throttle response for any riding circumstance, so you should never be caught off guard by the terrain. The DR-Z 400S is lightweight, with crisp handling, so you can mix and match your adventures however you like. Whether you need to just cut across town for groceries or go off the beaten path to blow off some steam, this bike puts you in control. The bike also comes in an upgraded model, the 2013 DR-Z 400SM, which inverts the front forks for less unsprung weight and improved overall handling. Whichever model you choose, you’ll be happy you did when you’re taking turns on your way to your favorite trail ride.
