2025 Suzuki DR-Z125L: LOADS OF FUN IN ONE PACKAGE.

Introducing the 2025 Suzuki DR-Z125L…

Well suited for young and smaller stature riders the 2025 DR-Z125L can take on the dirt like a larger, more expensive bike. Large-diameter 19-inch front and 16-inch rear tires, as well as a front disc brake, deliver big bike performance to a size-appropriate motorcycle. The DR-Z125L is the perfect platform to build essential riding skills upon, thanks to a true manual clutch and a five-speed transmission.

Styled to mirror Suzuki’s Championship-winning RM-Z models, this DR-Z brings sharp handling plus strong low-end and mid-range engine power. An off-road value, the DR-Z125L is an unassuming, easy to ride package packed with loads of fun.
