Dirt Riding on the Road…

The 2015 DR-Z400S is ideal for taking a ride down your favorite off-road trail. 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 bike is completely street legal with an electric start and easy-to-read instrument cluster. Whether you’re on the highway or in a tight twisty forest trail, the Suzuki DR-Z400S can’t be beat.

The DR-Z400S, like the off road DR-Z400E it is based on, 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.
