2017 Suzuki DR-Z125L Review

2017 Suzuki DR-Z125L on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Hot On Any Trail...

Blending race inspired looks along with an exciting entry-level off road package creates the Suzuki DR-Z125L. Built around a time proven chassis and engine package. Inheriting sleek designs from its RM-Z brothers, the DR-Z125L yields motocross styling that looks good at the local track or a favorite trail.

Here comes the 2017 DR-Z1250L to make sure young and smaller stature riders can tackle the dirt. Larger 19-inch front and 16-inch rear tires, as well as a front disc brake, deliver big bike performance to a size appropriate motorcycle. Styled to mirror Suzuki’s RM-Z and RMX models, this DR-Z promotes a more race-oriented look while the sharp handling and strong low-to-mid end power provide the get-up-and-go that defines off-road bikes. The looks are a testament that you can’t judge a book by its cover because the DR-Z125L is an unassuming package packed with loads of fun.

Rev up. When you’ve got a Suzuki off-road motorcycle, the whole world looks a little different. You start seeing trails, desert, and single-track everywhere you look. Even a rainy day just means more mud to play in. Expect loads of torque across a wide powerband with high-rpm muscle to spare.
