2017 Suzuki DR-Z400S Review

2017 Suzuki DR-Z400S on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Pleasure to Ride on Highway and City Adventures...

The 2017 DR-Z400S is ideal for taking a ride down your favorite off-road trail or ribbon of asphalt. You'll be impressed with the amount of torque coming from the 398cc liquid-cooled power plant as well as the crisp handling from the adjustable suspension. This ultra-reliable bike is completely street legal with an electric start and easy-to-read instrument cluster. New solid black bodywork with bold, contrasting color graphics makes the bike stand out on the road, on the trail, or even parked. Whether you're on the highway or on a twisty forest path, the Suzuki DR-Z400S can't be beat.

Like the off road DR-Z400E it is based on, the DR-Z400S breaks new ground in off road/dual-sport riding by offering the broad, tractable power and torque of an advanced and a compact, light and agile chassis. Fully street-legal, the nimble handling and excellent 4-stroke engine for tackling runs also make the DR-Z400S a downright pleasure to ride on highway and city adventures.





2017 Suzuki DR-Z400S www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Choose your own adventure. For those who love carving corners and the call of the wild, our DualSport machines deliver comfort on the street, control off the beaten path, and full command everywhere in between. Get ready for an ideal combination of lightweight agility and crisp handling.

 

 

2017 Suzuki DR-Z400S www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine Features

A compact design, 398cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, dry-sump engine produces strong low-RPM power. Its compact 4-valve cylinder head features large 36mm intake valves and 29mm exhaust valves help produce broad, tractable power and torque ready for any terrain

Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Materials (SCEM) cylinder is durable, lightweight and provides superior heat transfer

Digitally mapped DC-CDI system monitors throttle position/engine rpm and adjusts ignition timing to maintain efficient combustion

Magnesium-alloy clutch, magneto and cam covers contribute to the bike’s low weight

A compact 5-speed transmission utilizes a cable-operated clutch with separate outer cover for simplified clutch maintenance

Sure stopping power is supplied by a 250mm front disc with a dual-piston caliper and a 220mm rear disc brake with a single-piston caliper
