New look for old favourite

Geelong Advertiser - Motoring - - CARSGUIDE -

THE 2015 ver­sion of Suzuki’s best-sell­ing DR650SE en­duro is set to touch down in Aus­tralia this month.

Boast­ing a bold new white and grey liv­ery, the No. 1 choice for trail, road and ad­ven­ture in Aus­tralia draws on an un­par­al­leled her­itage.

“No other mo­tor­cy­cle in our range is as pop­u­lar with cus­tomers want­ing to build an ad­ven­ture tourer to take on some of the world’s tough­est tracks,” said Suzuki Aus­tralia mo­tor­cy­cle mar­ket­ing man­ager L e wis Croft.

“No other ma­chine can of­fer such a her­itage of re­li­a­bil­ity and value for money.”

The 2015 i ter­a­tion comes with the same 644cc four-stroke en­gine, fea­tur­ing Suzuki’s Ad­vanced Cool­ing Sys­tem and tuned with an em­pha­sis on user­friendly per­for­mance at low-to­mid en­gine speeds.

The g e a r - d r i v e n s i n g l e coun­ter­bal­ance sys­tem min­imises en­gine vi­bra­tion f or a com­fort­able r i de, while t he 40mm Mikuni car­bu­ret­tor en­sures a smooth in­take flow and sharp throt­tle re­sponse.

The front and rear sus­pen­sion sys­tems both pro­vide long 260mm wheel travel for ease of han­dling, while twin-pis­ton cal­iber disc brakes front and rear pro­vide re­li­able stop­ping power.

The 2015 Suzuki DR650SE is avail­able for $8090.
