THE 2001 DUALSPORT LINE: STREET & OFF-ROAD CAPABILITY
In an age of specialization it’s nice to own a motorcycle that not only meets the basics, like daily transportation, but adds some fun to the equation as well. Enter the DualSport bike – street-legal lighting and instrumentation combined with the lightweight agility of pure off-road machinery.
Thousands of riders have either learned to ride or rediscovered the fun of off-road riding with Suzuki DualSport bikes. Largely based on off-road bikes, these hybrid machines come with lights, speedometers and turn signals so they are also street-legal. They’re versatile, inexpensive to own and maintain, and most of all, pure fun, thanks to their light weight, agility, and ability to go so many places.
Suzuki has done more to grow this market segment than any other manufacturer. How? By offering a complete line of street-legal dirt bikes. By loading up these bikes with advanced technology that was unimaginable 20 years ago, and by backing the Suzuki DualSport Riders Club, which hosts events and sponsors rides all over the country, promoting the safe, responsible use of off-road trails.
