2010 Suzuki DR650SE

No compromise.

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


The DR650SE offers you the versatility of hitting the highways or raising the dust. And without compromise on either surface.

Giving riders plenty of low-to-mid range torque, the DR650SE is powered by a 644cc, four-stroke, air-cooled engine, with Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coated cylinders to minimise wear.

The combination of a powerful engine and lightweight frame offers agile handling and a comfortable and enjoyable ride, on or off road. Comfort is also enhanced by a streamlined seat with 40mm variable seat height position and a vibration- reducing balancer system.

A rigid frame and short wheelbase provide off-road maneuverability, while loads of tractable horsepower from the big grunty engine translates into effortless high- speed cruising.

Reliable, big-on-value and street-legal, the 2010 DR650SE is eligible for the Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS) in certain States and Territories.

On the highways or toughing it out in the dirt, this is Suzuki’s ultimate Dual Sport Bike.
