2015 Suuki DR-Z400SM

Suzuki has a reputation for designing strong-performing dirt bikes and sharp-handling street bikes. The goal of the 2015 DR-Z400SM is to deliver a dose of both.

The SM, short for Supermoto, uses a 398cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine that provides strong low-rpm torque and crisp throttle response.

The SM arrives with inverted forks, which results in less unsprung weight and improved overall handling. The SuperMoto also features with wider 17-inch aluminum rims and sticky radial tires.
