2025 Suzuki DR650S Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

A true DualSport, the DR650S is ready to cruise around town, up the highway, or down your favorite trail. Engineered into the suspension is the ability to lower the seat height* (Suzuki dealers can perform using an accessory side stand kit).
• With Solid Black and Solid Gray or bright Solid Special White bodywork that features distinctive blue and black graphics, the DR650S looks good when ridden on any surface. A long, comfortable seat, aluminum footpegs, and grab handles allow the rider to carry a passenger with ease.
• The compact and powerful, 644cc, SOHC, four-stroke, air- and oil-cooled engine features the Suzuki Advanced Cooling System (SACS). Piston-jet cooling and an oil cooler help create consistent performance in a variety of conditions. With an emphasis on low- to mid-rpm range power, a gear-driven balancer shaft minimizes engine vibration.
• The multi-plate clutch has precise push rod actuation for a light lever pull and a consistent release point. A smooth-shifting five-speed transmission is complemented by a sealed O-ring drive chain.
• A lightweight, semi-double cradle steel frame delivers agile handling on- and off-road. An innovative, height-adjustable* fork and link-type rear suspension with a piggyback style, aluminum-body shock absorber provide a smooth and controlled ride.
• DR650S uses a lightweight, low-maintenance battery to feed a convenient electric starter with an automatic decompression system for easy and quick starting. A full street-legal lighting system comes with a bright halogen headlight.
