2014 DRZ 400SM has been announced.

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

Any difference between the 2013 and 2014??

Any difference between the 2000 and 2014??

so long as suzuki is still making it, no. 

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

Dont suppose it says EFI and 6 speed? Or am i still dreaming

If it has efi or a 6 speed I'm going be pretty pissed I just bought a new sm a month ago >_>

Still dreaming! The title said 2014 DRZ400SM not 2014 500EXC :ride:

looking at there website its the exact same as the 2013...

You have more chance of getting an rmx450sm than efi and 6 speed on a drz lol

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.

I think you are underestimating the costs of all that... I'm sure as hell not paying 10g's for a drz there re other options out there.

i think we are both dreaming ?

Oh and Suzuki already made a fuel injected 450 enduro. Sales aren't so hot.

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.

The first thing I thought of was .. New graphics and maybe wheel color

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.
