With the Suzuki offers a very package which combines agility and smooth street offered by the lightweight single-cylinder. If you are for adventure and if you think that fun at the end of the road, this is the one for you.

Before we start talking a bike I believe we first to know how it ended up being a With the DR650 it’s a task. In fact, the base of creating the DR650 was very Suzuki needed a big offroad

In the late 1980s they did had the but it wasn’t quite powerful for customers who knew there bigger machines on the market, the Honda Dominator650. They developing a new, bigger which would offer all the needed and this is where enters the scene. The bike in the early 1990s in two different DR650 Djebel and DR650RS. shared the same mechanics but the were quite different.

The RS was a model, featuring a small system, quite different the Djebel (also called Dakar). But the most obvious between the two is that the Djebel feature the RS model’s fairing and it had a bike styled higher mudguard.

Both DR650 were basically an enlarged (bigger bore and longer with upgraded frame and sharing the same 21 liters tank and a massive aluminum carrier.

Suzuki continued the DR650 and in 1991 it presented the with electric start automatic decompression system. The also got fat, it was big everything but a purpose and that purpose was the starter which needed a battery (12 Ah instead of 5) and more alternator (200 W instead of causing an extra weight of 15 kg

In 1992 they changed features of the bike: this got a smaller fuel tank (17 instead of 21) and the aluminum rear was replaced with a smaller The changes, among with refinements, made it possible to the model 8 kg (17, 6 lbs.) dry mass. The exhaust system was for better low-rev torque and the suspension was improved.

This is the year when Djebel name to DR650R.

The model significantly improved until when it was revised for better and less weight. They had to power for a better low-rev making it more comfortable to The smoother and yet less powerful was made by upgrading the exhaust again and increasing the bore by 5mm (0. 196 and shortening the … by 8mm (0.315

The new engine ran very smoothly and vibrate nearly as much as the of the RSE. The same engine a new oil cooler that year.

It was that the bike was on a diet: the was narrower, which means it so comfy when riding distances, the fairing reduced to a top fairing without a windshield and the and the frame were totally new and All this changes made the 25 kg (55lbs.) lighter than the

Through the years it kept produced and ridden by people all the world, without major The colors kept changing year, but the product remained the

In 2008 the Suzuki DR650SE a lightweight SOHC four-… tuned for strong low and midrange and fuel efficiency with a counterbalancer system.

It has gone a way but it was worth is! 2008 Suzuki us a reliable and very enjoyable the DR650SE.


Suzuki the DR650 as a competitor for Honda’s 650 They just had to increase the capacity because of the insufficient Then the bike started a rival for the other single-cylinder motorcycles on the market like KLR650 and Honda’s XR650L.

and Honda are better off-road but KLR650 has a bigger fuel (which means cruising distances).

I will conclude by you know that each and motorcycle is very good as as you think very good at you are going to do with it. If you fell going across the States the opportunity to blow some you probably need the KLR650 but if you off-road with the ability to very good on the streets you the DR650SE or Honda’s XR650L.

Suzuki tried to keep as simple as possible when it the bike. Always wanting to customers, the DR650SE includes a adjustable seat height for riders. The bike features a fuel tank and painted exhaust system, giving a modern and attractive look with the side panels and handguards.

The bike will be available in two colors, black and blue but I am certain that it will be and dusty all the time and nobody ever see the difference.


The is a great technical achievement. a compact and lightweight SOHC 4 engine tuned for strong low and power and fuel efficiency with the single counterbalancier you know you benefit of more 20 years of developing and improvements.

mounted an efficient SACS cooling system with piston-jet cooling and engine oil Also the durable Suzuki Electrochemical Material minimizes size weight and improves dissipation.

A Mikuni 40mm carburetor has the task to feed the and the painted-steel exhaust system, specifically for strong low and midrange makes sure the engine properly.

This motorcycle features: a wide-ratio 5-speed with O-ring sealed drive chain, electric with automatic decompression and a low-maintenance, digitally controlled ignition system which accurate ignition timing and consistent spark at all engine

On the Suzuki DR650SE everything has its purpose. Let’s take a at the bike’s chassis features the very useful adjustable height which can be lowered (1.6 in.) with modifications performed by a dealer or the and lightweight frame. The use of thin-wall/large tubing reduces weight increasing frame rigidity.

The front of the bike presents a which combines the best of conventional and inverted designs: and progressive action. Large thin-walled tubes reduce weight while maintaining rigidity-minimal below-axle extension. at the front, a lightweight 290mm disc brake with 2 caliper for excellent braking

At the back it’s all about damping performance provided by a suspension with piggyback-style absorber and adjustable compression Let’s not forget the lightweight swingarm which contributes as The rear disc brake a lightweight drilled rotor and two calipers.

Still not satisfied? you’ll be after you hear the special designed tires on/off road tread fitted to 21” front and rear wheel or the full lightning system with 55/60 watt halogen

Ok, some people are more and that’s why Suzuki has a list of Accessories which includes: Gel Skid plate, Rear and a Side stand (for seat height option)

Riding the Suzuki DR650 always be a relaxing and enjoyable On the road, the bike performs the way it should: it delivers a great of lo-to-mid range power and the make you feel like riding a Cadillac instead of a motorcycle though I can’t say the thing about the seat becomes annoying after 60 miles.

This bike was not created for but it can put some decent mph on the speedometer if you it a little. I sure know I did and I to ride the bike with 90 mph on my way to the

This kind of bike is likely to be used off the road and I wonder why. It shines out There’s nothing compared to the rush offered by the engine’s amount of torque when you out of corners and power your way various terrains.

It is easy to reliable, it has a good power to ratio for its class and it will make you crave for another run.

If you need to long various terrain in a short amount of time this is the machine you need. And what? It does come With a MSRP of $5,099.00, is a quick fix to your transportation

These bikes have been cheap to buy and we all now that is not a tough issue.


I conclude by telling you that the is an absolute joy to ride both on and off the but I prefer to let you give it a try and make own opinion.
