The price is to be announced. March/April can't come fast enough so I can pick one up.

Bold new graphics....

 

Doubtful.

 

Bland new graphics.

 

 

 

And to go with the mismatched tank/shroud colors, one wheel will be green and the left number plate will be yellow.

It was a joke haha every year Suzuki lists that as a feature. And I never understood the whole black tank/white shrouds bs

Suzuki are dropping the ball, same engine but 450cc, wider ratio gears, efi, good quiet hi flow exhaust, 4l bigger tank, decent cams, trail and road wheel kit supplied, and a few minor cosmetic changes, add a grand to the current list price and watch them fly out the door, just being lazy with their R and D, wouldn't take much at all, and I would buy one.

One you can make road legal everywhere, not just here and there, wide ratio gears, not a six speed, 94mm bore and 2mm more stroke (conservative),improved e cams on all models, exhaust system, not complicated at all, EFI not an issue these days, in effect develop the bike not re do everything, better seat squab, KTMs and the like are hand grenades for people who are no good at spannering and who have no mechanical sympathy, and way too off road orientated, DRZs are the dual purpose equivalent of a 1250 bandit, tough, over-engineered and reliable, a specialist generalist, keep the new DRZ in its current dual purpose state, only build on that, its heart is almost the best off road engine ever made, Eddie S swears by them, then so do I.

I would love to see improvements but I would hate to see the price jump or them making the DRZ tough to work on.

 

Heck I need to Suzuki SDS tool set just to work on my gixxer, I can't even adjust the idle the bike is so computerized. Be a damn shame if they did that to the DRZ.

 

Sportbike prices are becoming outrageous and damn near impossible to work on. I will take my old school DRZ any day. One of the main reason I went with the DRZ was cost, durability and easy to work on.

So I see most questions have been answered. I look periodically on the website to see when the 2014's are coming and today was the day. I was getting nervous they were going to scrap the SM line and would lose the chance to get a brand new one out of the box. Looks like I just weaseled into one, well in March or April. My first supermoto, can't wait to hooligan it up.
