Dirty Looks, Street Performance

The DR-Z400S looks like an off-road machine, and it is - with all the unmatched performance capabilities you'd expect from a Suzuki.

But look a little more carefully and you'll see you get a bonus: it's 100 percent street legal. The DR-Z400's exceptional off-road performance should come as no surprise. After all, it uses the same advanced suspension as the renowned DR-Z400E. It also has a lightweight, compact design that helps it offer crisp handling everywhere from tight, technical trails to wide-open fire roads.

Off-road or on the street, the DR-Z400S provides strong torque across the powerband and amazing throttle response. And it features remarkably smooth performance, complemented by conveniences such as electric starting and a compact, easy-to-read instrument cluster.

On the trail or across town, you can't beat the Suzuki DR-Z400S.
