2016 Suzuki DR-Z125L

2016 DR-Z125L

The 2016 DR-Z125L comes stocked with all the necessities for long, exciting rides. A larger 19-inch front tire and 16-inch rear tire as well as a front disk brake provide a longer lifespan of usefulness. Styled to reflect the RM-Z models, this DR-Z promotes a more race-oriented look while the sharp handling and strong low-to-mid end power provide the get-up-and-go that defines off-road bikes. The looks are a testament that you can’t judge a book by its cover because the DR-Z125L is a simple package packed with loads of fun.

Rev up. When you’ve got a DR-Z, the whole world looks a little different. You start seeing whoops, jumps, and washboards everywhere you look. Even a rainy day just means more mud to play in.
