2008 Suzuki DR-Z125

Good looks and great handling – that’s what the DR-Z125 and DR-Z125L are all about. For 2008, both bikes feature aggressive new bodywork that makes them stylistic replicas of the championship-winning RM-Z machines. Their performance virtues, though,
go a lot deeper than that. Both bikes set the class standard for precise, agile handling. Beginning and more experienced riders will appreciate their controllable powerband and strong low-end and mid-range power. And larger riders can choose the DR-Z125L, featuring larger wheels and a front disc brake. The new DR-Z125 and DR-Z125L – race inspired styling with performance to match.


New Features
All new aggressively styled bodywork, number plates and graphics built to look exactly like the race winning RM-Z competition models

Engine Features
Compact 125cc 4-stroke, SOHC, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine designed for ease-of operation and low maintenance

Tuned intake tract and exhaust system for more low-to-mid rpm power

Mikuni VM20SS carburetor for smooth throttle response

Digital-type CDI ignition system with timing set to enhance the engine’s low-rpm power characteristics


Chassis Features
Sharp off-road styling with fuel tank, radiator shrouds and frame covers patterned after RM-Z models; seat and rear fender inspired from the RM-Z plus handlebar, front fender and number plate shared with the RM85

Optimum wheel/tire combination to smaller riders: F: 70/100-17, R: 90/100-14
