The DR-Z400 has been around since 2000 and this dual sport is still competent for trail riding and urban cruising with its 398cc liquid-cooled single cylinder engine. Dirt-bike-like suspension travel of 11 inches with a fully adjustable front and preload- and compression-adjustable rear setup make the DR-Z400S ready for any terrain. Easy-to-access covers to the air filter and clutch make maintenance easy as well. It may not be the most high-tech dual sport out there with components like a carburetor, LCD screen, and halogen lighting, but when you are out there on the trails sometimes the bare minimum is all the tech you need.
