Suzuki Australia press release:
For MY19 Suzuki’s popular super motard, the DR-Z400SM will be available in two striking new colour schemes.
A street and learner legal bike for serious dirt bike enthusiasts on pavement roads. It’s not uncommon for DR-Z400SM riders to be seen blasting down gravel fire tracks or keeping supersport riders honest on tight and twisty mountain roads.
Powered by a 398cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine that provides strong low-rpm torque and crisp throttle response for any of these occasions.
49mm Showa inverted front forks derived from the RM-Z motocross series make for extra-smooth action. Compression damping features 21-clicks of adjustment with 19-clicks of adjustment on rebound.
The progressive linkage rear shock absorber features fully adjustable spring preload, 20-clicks compression and 19-clicks rebound damping adjustability. The stylish tapered aluminium-alloy swingarm ensures precise rear wheel control.
A massive 310mm floating type front disc brake is the same size as used on GSX-R sports bikes, combined with a 240mm rear disc brake to provide serious stopping power.
Top shelf Renthal tapered aluminium Fatbar handlebars, 17-inch high grip radial tyres matted to anodised Excel rims with front and rear axle sliders cap-off the impressive package.
The 2019 Suzuki DR-Z400SM is available now for a recommended retail price of $9,990 ride away with 12 months registration and is backed by Suzuki’s 12-month, unlimited kilometre warranty.
