The 2015 Suzuki DR200S

2015 Suzuki DR200S

Suzuki has revised its DR200S Dual Sport for 2015. The bike gains some styling based on the RM-Z motocross machines, and a newly-shaped seat that integrates with the fuel tank for enhanced looks and comfort.

The seat helps add to improved ergonomics so the DR200S fits a wider range of riders. And they will be able to go the distance. The DR200S’ gas tank is 3.4 gallons, and the bike gets an estimate 105 mph.

The 199cc air-cooled four-stroke engine is compact for the tight trails. The engine produces ample torque for the dirt trails, and a smooth top end for open-road riding.

Suzuki says its cylinder is plated with the same Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) that helps keep so many Suzuki motorcycle engines strong and lightweight. Add front disc brakes, pre-load adjustable rear suspension, and push-button electric start, and you have a Dual Sport bike that is ready for any day of riding.
