Champion models offer rider-friendly options
SUZUKI’S next generation of DR-Z trail bikes are here soon.
The 2015 DR-Z400E and DR-Z250 lob in early August, adding another choice for the off-road riding enthusiast.
Boasting a new colour scheme (champion yellow and black) the 2015 models draw inspiration from the race-winning RM-Z range.
Featuring powerful fourstroke engines, agile handling and a rugged chassis ready for tough terrain, the DR-Z400E and DR-Z250 have a reputation for reliable, fuss-free riding.
Both new models are fully street legal out of the box and learner approved.
It makes the DR-Z400E and DR-Z250 ideal for new riders looking for a motorcycle suitable for work and play.
The 2015 DR-Z250 features a 249cc DOHC engine for a broad power range and abundant low-rev torque.
The Suzuki advanced cooling system maintains optimum engine temperatures.
The aluminium cylinder is plated with race-tested Suzuki composite electrochemical material coating for weight reduction and better heat transfer. It comes with a slick-shifting six-speed transmission and a large, four-litre airbox with quick release fasteners for easy maintenance.
A rider-friendly chassis is complemented by long travel front forks, with 12-way compression and 17-way rebound damping force adjustment. The remote-reservoir shock absorber features fully adjustable compression and rebound damping force and spring preload.
Inspired by the RM-Z, the DR-Z250 comes with a powerful disc braking system with twin-piston front caliper, while the rear brake comes with a guard for the caliper and disc.
The DR-Z400E runs a 398cc DOHC engine for those riders wanting even more power.
It is matched with a digitally mapped DC-CDI system that monitors engine speed and throttle position, to automatically adjust ignition timing for maximum efficiency.
An electric start ensures fuss-free riding, while handling is covered by the long travel 48mm stanchion tube front forks and progressive linkage rear suspension. They are both fully adjustable.
Pricing on the trail bikes will be available when they arrive here in August.
