What Kind of suzuki is this? Would love to have something that feels like a dirt bike on the street haha.
I've considered bikes before but don't think I could get on a "crotch rocket", and harley style bikes aren't really my thing.

    Suzuki DRZ400SM the class of the bike is referred to as either a Supermoto or Motard (European/MPI lol)

    The DRZ is decently quick, great handling and super cheap to insure/repair.

    There are faster/bigger SMs out there, but they are typically more expensive and less reliable.

    Feel free to DM me if you have question - I am happy to help. Plus I need some more SM friends :)

        I had an '09 a few years back with a few modifications done to it.  With the airbox opened up and jetted/full MRD exhaust it would lift the front tire off the ground from a standstill in 1st with some throttle and weight transfer in the seat. Pretty torquey engine for a small bike, a riot in the city.  Not without faults though; the clock(s) failed like they've been doing since 2005 IIRC and they have a few other mechanical issues to watch out for which haven't gone away because they've haven't really changed the bike since 2005 when they first came out.

        I've had a WR250X and a KLX250SF since then.  The Kawi was a bit of the DRZ and WR combined, steel frame and carb of the 'zuk but 6 speed of the Yamaha. Cold blooded though, actually enough that it made me get rid of it pretty much for that reason alone.  If I had to do it again I would take the WR, just a shame they only made them for a few years.

          They still make the WR, just the R version so it has the big wheels and knobby tires. but it's the same bike underneath. just swap the wheels/tires.

            Yeah they have been making the R since 2008 when the X came out. I think it's cheaper/easier to go the other way around from the get go but can't remember now.  Kind of the same faults with the WR250, I don't think Yamaha has changed that machine much at all since 2008 when they came out.  The aluminum frame, 6 speed, and fuel injection set it apart from all the others imo, unless you're looking at KTMs but then reliability/price goes out the window as far as I'm concerned.

                    Great season of riding. Enjoyed this bike and was hard to let go but just too nice to chop up to Cafe.
