2024 Suzuki DR-Z125L: LOADS OF FUN.

Introducing the 2024 Suzuki DR-Z125L…

Here comes the DR-Z125L 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. Here’s the perfect platform to build essential riding skills upon, as the DR-Z125L has a true manual clutch and a five-speed transmission so riders can develop these skills as they advance within the sport of motorcycling. Styled to mirror Suzuki’s Championship-winning RM-Z and RMX models, this DR-Z arrives with a race-oriented look, while the sharp handling and strong low-end and mid-range power provide the get-up-and-go that defines off-road bikes. The bike’s race ready looks prove you can’t judge a book by its cover, because the DR-Z125L is an unassuming, easy to ride package packed with loads of fun.

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