A fun, all-around dual sport.

The flagship dual sport from Suzuki is the DR650S. It is a fun and capable machine that leads Suzuki’s dual sport charge with a trusty 644cc air- and liquid-cooled four-stroke engine and five-speed transmission. Large 21- and 17-inch tires and 10.2-inch travel get this machine ready for the rough terrain while a long seat, aluminum footpegs, and grab handles allow for two-up riding. So whether you are hitting the moderate trails or cruising around town, the DR650S does so reliably. While the seat height starts at 34.8 inches, shorter-inseam riders can drop it nearly 2 inches with the optional low seat accessory. Suspension is also height adjustable in both the front and rear, but it consequently drops the suspension travel.

2020 Suzuki DR650S Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

Competition in the higher-displacement dual sport realm includes the Kawasaki KLR650, Honda XR650L, and KTM 690 Enduro R, though the KTM is almost double the Suzuki’s pricing. Dropping down in price and displacement, the other dual-sport options include the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Honda CRF250L/Rally, Yamaha TW200, or Kawasaki KLX230.
