2017 Suzuki DR-Z400S

2017 Suzuki DR-Z400S horsepowerUnchanged from last year, including no change in the price, the 2017 Suzuki DR-Z400S returns as the only mid-size dual-sport bike from Japan.

While the design is showing its age—it still uses a carburetor and the mirrors are vintage—the Suzuki DR-Z400S remains a viable bike both on- and off-road. For those who are serious about taking the DR-Z400S in the dirt, a tire swap is needed, but otherwise it’s ready for serious off-roading.

Those who need racing performance will look to the Euro dual-sport bikes, while DR-Z400S buyers will appreciate that it is a comfortable trail bike that can be ridden all day long at an enjoyable pace.
