Will DRZ 400SM be OK for TAT?


Recommended Posts

Okay...took me awhile to find a bike for the Trans Am Trail that I like and that suits my vertically challenged height (5'4"). It's a Suzuki DRZ 400SM. From what I'm reading though, the DRZ 400SM, while being a dual-sport, is set up more for street riding. Anyone out there have info or experience with the SM on the offroad?

Oh yeaaaaahhh I ride a DRZ400SM, it is a canyon carver! Not so much a dual bike. That would be a different model, ES? You can however ride dirt on them, you just need to do it with finesse and dont expect to do narly trails. Although Debi here, (SMGranny) << SuperMoto Granny does it! She has many videos of her riding trails on that bike. I love mine:thumbsup: But I dont do a whole lot of off roading with it, mostly canyons:banana:fire roads and some hooligan moves.

They are great street bikes for Females:ride:

Oh yes...these SM's can do lots of things 😏 think of the DRZ SM as a Tank haha

Like Sun has mentioned the SM in the dirt is a bit more of a handful but if you run Avon Distanzia's that will help and getting used to how the bike reacts in the single track and ruts helps as well:thumbsup:

I just Think Sun is scared of her SM and what it can do to her :cheers:

I ride mine in and on everything and I really mean everything....From SM tracks to Single track.....33,000 + miles of major smiles on mine:thumbsup:

Here are a few vids of what the DRZ SM can do 😏
