The right sm for a larger novice rider

Recommended Posts

I am a novice rider that is 6'3" 260 pounds. Ive been contemplating buying a drz400sm for my first bike but Im worried that with my size it wont have any go. Any advice on this or another bike would be appreciated.

i wouldnt worry about go on a drz, its got plenty even for big guys. its a great bike with plenty of options for upgrades. as a novice rider you might consider a more tame bike like the drz. as you get more comfortable you add to your bike.....full pipe, re jet, carb, big bore, cams, stroker, the list goes on and on....... you can find a good used one for cheap too

The DRZ will work, but a large bore (600cc+) would fit you bigger all the way around.

XR600 or 650L makes a great first bike.

IF you are talking street use, not racing. Same with the DRZ, just slower.

I am 6'2" and 220 lbs and have no issues with my WR250X. Either that or a DRZ will be fine for you.
