Overview

2016 DR-Z400S

The DR-Z400S is ideal for taking a ride down your favorite off-road trail. You'll be impressed with the amount of torque coming from the 398cc liquid-cooled powerplant as well as the crisp handling from the adjustable suspension. This bike is completely street legal with an electric start and easy-to-read instrument cluster. Whether you're on the highway or in a tight twisty forest trail, the Suzuki DR-Z400S can't be beat.

Like the off road DR-Z400E it is based on, the DR-Z400S breaks new ground in off road/dual-sport riding by offering the broad, tractable power and torque of an advanced and a compact, light and agile chassis. Fully street-legal, the nimble handling and excellent 4-stroke engine for tackling runs also make the DR-Z400S a downright pleasure to ride on highway and city adventures.

Features

 

Engine Features
  The DR-Z400S comes with a compact design, 398cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, dry-sump engine that produces strong low-rpm power. Its compact 4-valve cylinder head features 36mm intake valves and 29mm exhaust valves.
   
  Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Materials (SCEM) cylinder for durability, weight reduction and superior heat transfer.
   
  Digitally mapped DC-CDI system monitors throttle position/engine rpm and adjusts ignition timing to maintain efficient combustion.
   
  Forged aluminum piston is 10 percent lighter than a cast piston and receives additional oil-cooling to the piston crown through a crankcase oil jet.
   
  A Mikuni™ 36mm carburetor fed by a 6-liter airbox provides smooth throttle response. The left side cover has quick-release fasteners for easy access to the air filter.
   
  Electric start system provides convenient operation and features a lightweight starter motor and a compact 6.5 amp maintenance-free battery.
   
  Magnesium-alloy clutch, magneto and cam covers contribute to weight reduction.
TRANSMISSION Features
  A compact 5-speed transmission utilizes a cable-operated clutch with separate outer cover for simplified clutch maintenance.
Chassis Features
  A narrow chrome-moly steel frame is torsionally strong with minimal weight. The backbone tube, front down tube, and steering head gussets form the dry-sump engine oil tank. A bolt-on aluminum subframe helps reduce weight and simplify maintenance.
   
  Long travel, 49mm cartridge-style forks feature adjustable compression/rebound damping and adjustable spring preload for all types of on/off-road terrain.
   
  A fully adjustable progressive linkage rear shock absorber (spring preload/compression damping adjustable) and aluminum swingarm for precise rear wheel control.
   
  Sure stopping power is supplied by a 250mm front disc brake with dual-piston caliper, and a 220mm rear disc brake with a single-piston caliper.
Additional Features
  Compact digital instrument cluster with speedometer, odometer, twin-trip meters with addition/subtraction capability, clock, timer and stopwatch functions.
   
  On-road legal lighting with bright 60/55 watt H4 halogen headlight, compact tail/stoplight, lightweight, rubber-mounted turn signals and horn.
   
  A pouch on the rear fender carries tool kit and the owner's manual.
