2018 Suzuki DR650S Buyer’s Guide

With a design old enough for it to be classified as a retro bike, the Suzuki DR650S remains unchanged for 2018.

While the air-cooled motor and Mikuni carburetor may put off some riders, it is just this sort of simplicity that appeals to other riders.

As it is, the DR650S straddles the fuzzy line between dual sport and adventure bikes. It’s not as dirt-worthy as many dual sport bikes due to its 366-pound curb weight, yet it’s a much better choice on single-track than most ADV machines due to that very same spec.

Something of a blank slate, riders can modify it in either direction simply by changing the tires, and shorter-inseam riders will welcome is the ability to lower the seat.

One thing is certain—the 2018 Suzuki DR650S is a highly reliable motorcycle that is quite versatile.
