Facelift for the DRZ at least ?

Secretly we are all hoping for a 6 speed 45 bhp alu framed DRZ 450 but that hope is dwindling each year :thumbsup: New bikes like the 690 KTM, 610 Husky and X-Challenge Beemers all have newer modern sharp styling. I have even been thinking about mounting a RMZ rear fender but had to settle with the front. I love my DRZ and it's still number one in my books but please Suzuki can we please have a slight facelift at least ?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.. So few vehicle manufacturers get that simple adage these days..

Screw the glam pack. Give me a 450 efi and a usable six speed and I'd be happy.

Kawasaki have done it with the KLR and although I think it's still butt ugly the price is almost the same as the old model.

Isn't it like 40 pounds heavier, too?

I guess that's a good bike for some, but for my application it just doesn't interest me at all...

Much more than a styling update. The engine head is completely redisigned, new exhaust system, new suspension, brakes etc. It is more new than old.

I have one, not sure if they made a better klr but they did make a much better tengai:thumbsup:

      I totaled my DRZ400S last year, did a good bit of work to it and finally got it running.. I want to turn this into my full stunt bike.
      I have read before about people buying a 2nd stock rear caliper & bracket - then cutting and welding it to the existing bracket, then just running a handbrake master, and a hose to the 2nd caliper. 
      Has anyone done this before? Defiantly seems to be the cheapest route to go (staying away from the junction valve / 1 master cyl. & 1 caliper setup.)
      Looking for opinions, pros/cons, and info if anyone has gone this route.. If it seems too much of a risk or hassle I guess im gonna have to spend the $500/$600 to get a legitimate setup 
      any and all comments are appreciated - except trolls.. you better be funny as hell if your gonna troll.
      Thank you all!

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??
