It's hard to beat the thrill of accelerating hard out of a tight turn on a forest trail. And the perfect way to get in on the action is with a Suzuki off-road bike. With a championship-winning heritage, Suzuki off-road bikes offer an incredible combination of torquey engine performance and lightweight handling. Best of all, there's a wide variety of models available, sized for most everyone in the family.
At the head of the lineup is the incredible DR-Z400E. This is the bike that routinely leaves the competition breathing nothing but dust. It cranks out a load of torque across a wide powerband with high-rpm muscle to spare. It's also exceptionally light, with advanced suspension front and rear, for agile handling on all kinds of trails. Suggested Retail: $5,499 USD.
