Product description


How's this for a red-hot combination? Take the incredible versatility and performance of Suzuki's renowned DR-Z400. Mix in street-legal capabilities and unmatched handling. Then add a double shot of aggressive Suzuki styling and attitude. The result is the 2009 DR-Z400SM.


For exceptional performance on the street, the DR-Z400SM offers remarkably smooth performance, along with a rush of torque across the powerband. For crisp handling, it features a lightweight, compact design, complemented by advanced suspension front and rear, including a Motocross-derived inverted fork.


All this performance at a value that earned the DR-Z400SM "Best Bang for the Buck" runner up in Motorcyclist Magazine's 2007 "Motorcycle of the Year" awards.
