Australia’s No 1 Super Motard
The Suzuki DR-Z400SM is a street legal bike for serious dirt bike enthusiasts on pavement roads. It’s not uncommon to take the Super Motard down gravel firetracks as well as tight twisty mountain corners. Its 398cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine provides strong low-rpm torque and crisp throttle response for any of these occasions.
Suzuki’s Supermotard combines Supermotard style and features in a narrow, lightweight street-legal package.
