Dealer in Mackay just told me there is a backlog of 400 DRZ's to expectant buyers here in Oz due to Covid bottlenecks and they are getting 100 next month. Now, that's Suzuki selling a dirt bike!
The dog that caught the car. What now?

India is going to LOVE that bike.  Hope Suzuki has plans for dayglo orange and yellow and lime green models.  With cowbells and Chinese lanterns as optional extras.

Also not sure which direction Suzuki is heading in - they seem to offer the good, bad and ugly of motorcycling  >:D

At least you can still buy this, brand spanking new....



Or, in my humble opinion, bargains of note, one of these two

R44 900



Or, R49 900 - (in MOTO GP colours and all)







Have you hugged your motorcycle today?

So if they can bring in DR200's why not DR 650's and DRZ400's? If it's not on the floor it won't sell!!! >:(

I see no reason why not ST all the lights are there. Think a lady in Loxton had one and toured with it and I guess it was legally on the road.

The DR200's are not homologated and not on eNatis - so they can not be registered and licensed. No disk. No nr plate.

Exactly, stupid so you are essentially buying a farm bike. That is why DRZ400 and DR650 got the chop as well but small chinese bikes are all over the show and surely not Euro whatever compliant

I wonder. If you went to a savvy dealer with 55,000 bucks in your grubby hand and said "I want this, ready to ride on the road.."

Would they make a plan?

"They" say I confuse wanting to stay young with wanting things to stay as they were when I was young.

Hardy de Kock's wife's DR was an older model that was still listed on eNAtis. They are no longer listed. So can not be done.
It is now a farm bike only.
