It’s the smallest of the Suzuki Dual Sport models and it’s a popular choice for those looking for a light-weight, functional and simple motorcycle. It’s air-cooled, carbureted and sips gas (88 mpg!). With a 3.3 gallon tank, it will take you well over 200 miles between fill ups.

The 2016 Suzuki DR-Z400S is the most impressive off-road performer in the Suzuki Dual Sport lineup with the versatility to be used on tough trail rides or trips to town and back. A liquid-cooled 398cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine produces a respected mix of torque along with commuter-friendly fuel economy. The suspension is tuned to deliver a comfortable ride over rocks, roots and rough roads. Long-travel cartridge forks allow adjustment for compression/rebound damping and preload. The rear shock uses progressive linkage and adjustable compression/rebound damping for superior comfort and control. The rugged DR-Z400S runs an off-road friendly 21-in front/18-inch rear wheel combination with DOT-approved dual sport knobby tires.

The 2016 Suzuki DR-Z400S will return without changes except for new Black and Gray bodywork.

The 2016 Suzuki DR650S is a reliable and versatile performer that’s ready for anything, from potholed city streets to dense wooded trails. This Dual Sport is powered by a reliable, air-cooled 645cc single-cylinder four-stroke with more than enough pull to get up the hills or cruise at highway speeds. With inverted cartridge front forks, plus a rear shock with piggyback style reservoir and adjustable compression damping, the DR650S offers a comfortable and confident ride. Disc brakes front and rear add to the performance features. The DR650S’ seat height can be lowered by more than 1.5 inches, helping riders tailor the bike to their preference (using a Suzuki Accessory side-stand kit).

The 2016 Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS is a proven package for adventure seekers, designed with comfortable and versatility in mind. The bike’s 645cc four-stroke produces unmatched V-Twin power for a middle-weight, characterized by low-to mid rpm range torque with a quick-revving high rpm surge. Featuring the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) fuel-injection system, plus twin iridium spark plugs for each cylinder, the engine produces surprising power, linear throttle response and fuel-efficient touring range.

The V-Strom’s light and rigid twin-spar aluminum-alloy frame and swingarm contribute to smooth handling performance and excellent stability at freeway speeds. Up front, 43mm stanchion-tube front forks are spring preload adjustable, and the rear features a link-type suspension with rebound damping adjustment as well as a hand-operated spring preload adjuster. It runs on 19-inch front and 17-inch rear radial tires mounted to light and strong three-spoke cast wheels. ABS-equipped disc brakes front and rear deliver smooth, controllable stopping power, and expansion-resistant high-pressure brake hoses enhance the responsive brake feel.

The V-Strom 650 ABS returns this year without change except for a $150 price drop and new colors — Candy Daring Red, Metallic Mystic Silver.


Suzuki V-Strom 650XT ABS — $8,499 MSRP

2016 Suzuki V-Strom 650XT ABS DL650XA Black

The 2016 Suzuki V-Strom 650XT ABS is the more adventurous version of the standard V-Strom 650 ABS with features like tubeless reverse-spoke aluminum wheels for better shock absorption off-road and a distinctive front beak with integrated air ducts that lead more air to the wind directing plates for improved cooling performance. These features combine with the proven V-Strom 650 engine and chassis package to make the 650XT ready for adventures in more types of terrain.

Gone are some of last year’s included accessories like the adjustable touring windscreen, aluminum side cases, and a rugged crash bars. The price has also been reduced by $1,900 and the V-Strom 650XT ABS is now available in all Black.


Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS — $12,699 MSRP

2016 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS DL1000A Silver

The 2016 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS is primed and ready for adventures, whether it be a multi-day journey across the country or a commute to work. A fuel-injected, 1037cc 90-degree V-twin engine is tuned for incredible low-end and mid-range torque, so you can tap into thrilling acceleration in every gear. Twin Iridium spark plugs ignite the fuel-air mixture to provide impressive power and efficient fuel consumption. An advanced Traction Control System helps riders control power output with confidence over a variety of riding surfaces.

At 503 pounds wet, the V-Strom 1000 ABS is one of the lightest adventure bikes in the liter class. An aluminum twin-spar frame offers nimble handling, with fully-adjustable 43mm inverted forks up front and a rear shock with adjustable rebound damping, plus a remote spring preload adjuster. Standard ABS monitors wheel speeds 50 times per wheel rotation to match stopping power to the available traction. Comfort is enhanced with a height- and angle-adjustable windscreen, and riders stay informed using an info-rich instrument cluster that includes an analog tach as well as LCD readouts for speed, gear-position, trip miles, average fuel consumption and much more.

The 2016 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS returns without change except for a new Metallic Mystic Silver paint scheme.


Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure — $13,999 MSRP

2016 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure DL1000A Matte-Gray

The 2016 Suzuki lineup also features the V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure, which takes the standard V-Strom 1000 ABS and adds accessories that make the bike even more versatile for different types of terrain, including hand-guards, a touring windscreen, side cases, crash bars and an under cowl. A taller and wider touring windscreen was carefully shaped in a wind-tunnel for optimal wind protection and noise reduction that help reduce rider fatigue. The height and angle of the touring windscreen are easily adjusted by hand.

Color-matched quick-release side cases are roomy and durable, and feature locks that match the ignition for one-key operation. The strong, steel crash bars also offer an excellent mounting point for optional items, like driving lights. The durable under-cowl cover adds protection and keeps road grime away from the bottom of the engine.

The V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure model comes in a new Metallic Matte Fibroin Gray color but is otherwise unchanged for 2016.

Don’t understand why Suzuki would not offer the included accessories on the v-strom anymore. I think it is a bad move.
