2017 Suzuki DR650S

2017 Suzuki DR650S horsepowerNot quite an adventure bike, but less dirt-worthy than many dual-sport bikes, the 2017 Suzuki DR650S establishes its own nice in the on-/off-road world.

The only change to the DR650S this year is going to Solid Black paint and different graphics. As it stands, the still-carbureted DR650S is a strong street performer—though it lacks the wind protection we expect on an adventure bike—though its dirt capabilities are hampered by a 366-pound curb weight, while encouraged by the torquey 644cc air-cooled motor.

The tires are a decent compromise, and does the 10-inch-travel suspension—not too much dirt, not overly street. Height adjustable forks and rebound damping adjustability in the shock allows for some personalization of the ride
