2016 Suzuki DR-Z400SM Buyer's Guide | Specs & Price
2016 Suzuki DR-Z400SM

A lightweight supermoto single with street-going radials mounted on gold-anodized 17-inch RK Excel aluminum rims, the DR-Z400SM is ready for fun on the street or track.

Wheelies are easy, and the bike is happy to be backed into corners. The single cylinder motor is well tested, and the suspension is fully adjustable. The chromoly frame and aluminum subframe keep the weight down, as do the magnesium valve cover, clutch cover, and magneto cover. Tapered aluminum bars from Renthal absorb vibration and provide the leverage necessary for supermoto riding.
