Recent purchase DRZ400S 2017 model.   I have about 940 miles as of today.  My ridingplan is to be able to drive this dirt bike on th road to various off road trails and county roads vs having to load and haul the bike like my former CRF450X.    I have done only a few modifications so far.    It is so new And shiny, I hate to see the first scrapes it is going to get.   Mods so far are:  case savers,  battery tender, I just ordered Ricochete skid plate, Unibiker radiator guards, Mictuning Hawkeyes foldable mirrors,   And some USAF related decals.

It's my first bike so I don't have anything to compare it to, but its a pack mule and the perfect ride for the city!

After 7,500 mi, and 3.5 years, only normal maintenance needed - oil changes, new brake pads, tires and battery.  Still starts and runs as reliable as new.  OEM Bridgestone tires lasted 7200 mi.  I've only been to about 60 mph on the highway, but still stable with plenty of power.  Light and nimble off-road, and still fun to drive on twisty roads.

 

One slight pet peeve – it takes a JIS screwdriver, a flat screwdriver, and two different sizes of Allen wrenches to get the plastics off and a wrench or socket to get the seat and chain guard off.  I can’t think of one reason they couldn’t have designed the bike to use a JIS screwdriver or one size Allen wrench for all these!  The tool kit has all the tools needed, but still.....

 

ETA - the speedometer reads about 10% faster than the actual speed by GPS, (i.e.: when it reads 50 mph, you are actually going 45 mph; speedometer = 40mph, actual speed 36mph, etc.)

Agile on the trails, keeps up with in city traffic. It is not a fast bike, and it is completely unsuitable for sustained highway speeds, but for riding to the local fishing lakes, streams, and rivers here in NW Montana, it could not be better. Simple, reliable, and light. And the button start works first time, every time.
