2008 Suzuki DR650SE

If you think the fun begins at the end of the road, you’ve come to the right place. The lightweight single-cylinder DR650SE is engineered for an exceptional combination of off-road agility and smooth street performance.

Off-road, the DR650SE shines. Its technologically advanced chassis and suspension systems help provide you with precise control on tight trails or open fire roads. For a real thrill, tap into the big single’s awesome torque. It lets you accelerate hard out of corners and power your way across wide-open terrain.

On the street, the DR650SE is a joy to ride. Its engine has a counterbalancer for remarkably smooth operation, and it has a comfortable seat and spacious riding position.

The 2008 Suzuki DR650SE – it’s your invitation to find your adventure.
