what "dr-z" letters mean?

Recommended Posts

I think the Z comes from the bike DR 820 Zeta (which is developed from dr800) that joined the dakar race in 90's... Am i right?

And what does "dr" mean?

dr has been a letter combo used by suzuki for years, the z is used because it "sounds fast" :thumbsup:

DRZ = Daily Riding Zero - a direct descendent of the WWII Japanese divebombing airplane that they turned into a commuter bike. With the same stock carb... which is the reason they lost the battle of midway. :thumbsup::ride::applause:

With the hard ass seats I can tell you it does NOT stand for (D)elighted ®ectal (Z)one!!

actually Im kinda happy thats not what it stands for....

back in the old days we speculated that PE stood for pure enduro and RM stood for racing machine so I could believe the DR is dirt rider or dirt road and as someone else alluded to the Z is probably just cuz it sounds fast like the Z06 vette or Z-28 camaro etc

Well according to my little nephew my tank says Doctor Z. :thumbsup:

Wow, that’s a big Suzuki depecherider. I bet he really has to extend his leg and lean to one side when he stops.
