2006 Suzuki DR-Z400SM


New white-colored turn signal lenses for improved appearance


Suzuki's new Supermotard model based on DR-Z400S - combines Supermotard style and features in a narrow, lightweight street-legal package

Long travel, Showa-brand inverted front fork derived from RM250 - features adjustable compression/rebound damping and alumite coating on inner tube surfaces for smooth action

A fully-adjustable rear shock absorber with high/low speed compression damping adjuster and aluminum swingarm for precise rear wheel control

Strong braking performance supplied by a front disc brake with a large 300mm floating-type rotor and dual-piston caliper, plus 240mm rear disc brake with single-piston caliper

Black-painted 17" aluminum rims and radial tires: 120/70-R17 front, 140/70- R17 rear



Compact digital instrument cluster with speedometer, odometer, twin-trip meters with addition/subtraction capability, clock, timer and stopwatch functions

On-road legal lighting with bright 60/55 watt halogen headlight, compact tail/stoplight, lightweight, rubber-mounted turn signals and horn

Narrow profile with smooth transitions between the tank, seat and bodywork

Chrome-moly steel frame is torsionally strong with minimal weight. The backbone tube, front down tube, and steering head gussets form the dry-sump engine oil tank

A bolt-on aluminum subframe helps reduce weight and simplify maintenance

Chrome-moly steel footpegs, aluminum rims/hubs, plus engine guard and rear disc guard



Lightweight 398cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, dry-sump engine produces strong, usable low-rpm power

Compact 4-valve cylinder head with 36mm intake valves, 29mm exhaust valves, narrow 28° included valve angle and shim-under-bucket valve adjustment system

SCEM-plated cylinder (nickel-silicon-phosphorous) is lighter and more durable than an iron liner with excellent heat transfer properties

Forged aluminum piston is 10% lighter than a cast piston and receives additional oil-cooling to the piston crown through a crankcase oil jet

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

Additional weight savings with magnesium valve cover, clutch cover, and magneto cover

Smooth throttle response with a Mikuni™ BSR36 CV-type carburetor fed by 6-liter airbox. The left side cover has quick-release fasteners for easy access to the air filter

Electric start with lightweight starter motor and a compact 6.5 amp maintenance-free battery

Automatic decompression system for quick/easy engine starts

Thermostatically-controlled cooling fan mounted to the left radiator helps maintain consistent operating temperature in traffic
