A GOOD MATE BONUS ADVENTURE KIT ON DR-Z400E
This is the bike that, unlike any other, fits the description of a dirt-churning weapon. The bike that year after year rocks its rivals, this year comes loaded with high-tech ammunition. The DR-Z's motivation comes from 398cc of displacement, DOHC with four huge valves and liquid cooling. The forged piston is 10% lighter than one conventionally cast, an L-shaped top piston ring reduces blow-by, while copious use of aluminium and magnesium lowers weight and improves heat transfer.
18,000 REASONS WHY Originally introduced in 1999 and becoming an Aussie bush icon with over 18,000 sold the DR-Z400E is a bike unlike any other currently available. Year after year it continues to be one of the top choices by trail riders looking for a capable enduro weapon without the costly and time consuming maintenance schedules. Powered by a 398cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 4-valve, single cylinder, 4-stroke engine with electric starting that produces broad, tractable power and torque, making obstacles such as long hill climbs a breeze. The air filter can be easily accessed without tools, grease nipples are featured on the swingarm pivot and linkage bearings for easy maintenance.

Unifying Suzuki’s off-road motorcycle branding, the RM-Z and DR-Z series have now adopted yellow with blue accent styling inspired by the factory MXGP machine. Also a welcome addition for MY18 is the anodized black rims which perfectly complement the DR-Z’s sleek new styling.
