Off-road, the DR650SE shines. Its technologically advanced chassis and suspension provide you with precise control on tight trails or open fire roads. For a real thrill, tap into the big single's awesome torque. It lets you accelerate hard out of corners and power your way across wide-open terrain.
On the street, the DR650SE is a joy to ride. The 2012 Suzuki DR650SE is your invitation to adventure.
A short wheelbase and low seat height provide nimble performance on or off road.
A lightweight, compact, rigid semi-double cradle frame provides agile handling on and off road. Use of thin-wall/large-diameter tubing reduces weight while increasing frame rigidity.
A compact, powerful 644cc, SOHC, four-stroke, air-cooled, engine features Suzuki Advanced Cooling System (SACS). Piston-jet cooling and an engine oil cooler further enhance consistent performance in a variety of conditions. The engine is tuned with an emphasis on powerful performance at low-to-mid RPM range.
Gear-driven single counter balancer system minimizes engine vibration for comfortable ride.
Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM) coated aluminum cylinder is used for durability, weight reduction and superior heat transfer.
A convenient electric starter (combined with a mechanical automatic decompression system) provides easy, quick starting. The system is powered by a lightweight and compact low-maintenance battery.
A Mikuni 40mm carburetor enhances throttle response and overall engine performance.
A painted stainless-steel exhaust system is light and corrosion-resistant, and tuned specifically for strong low and midrange power.
A smooth-shifting wide-ratio 5-speed transmission is complemented by an O-ring sealed final drive chain.
Innovative cartridge front forks combine the best features of conventional and inverted designs, providing smooth and progressive action. Large diameter, thin-walled tubes reduce unsprung weight while maintaining high rigidity.
A link-type rear suspension with piggyback-style shock absorber and adjustable compression damping provides stable damping performance.
Front and rear suspensions both provide long 260mm (10.2-inch) wheel travel for superb performance over rough terrain.
Lightweight 290mm (11.4-inch) front floating disc brake with two-piston caliper and 240mm (9.4-inch) rear disc brake with two-piston caliper provide reliable stopping power.
Hollow-type wheel axles and an aluminum swingarm reduce unsprung weight.
The seat height can be lowered 40mm (1.6-inch) with suspension modifications performed by a dealer.
