2008 Suzuki DR-Z125L

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.
