What Are the Differences Between the Suzuki Drz 400 Models?


Suzuki has three versions of its DRZ 400 motorcycles. The 400E is strictly an off-road bike. The 400S and the 400SM are dual-sport motorcycles designed for the trail or the street. Despite the fact that these three bikes are designed for different terrains, they do share some similarities, most notably with the frame and engine size.

The DRZ 400E

  • The 400E is a 398 cc-powered dirt bike. It weighs 262 pounds. It is lighter than the dual-sports version with more ground clearance and is outfitted with a rear tire designed for the trails.

The DRZ 400S

  • The 400S is a dual-sport bike modeled after the 400E. Suzuki changed the size of the rear tire and reduced some of the ground clearance. This bike is designed to be ridden on the street or on moderate trails. The DRZ 400S is powered by a 398 cc engine.

The DRZ 400 SM

  • The 400SM is the last evolution in the DRZ 400 line. This bike is also powered by a 398 cc engine. The 400SM has the lowest ground clearance of the three motorcycles. The smooth tread tires, made for the highway, points to the fact that this is primarily a street bike, albeit in a light dirt bike style. Although the 400SM is better suited for the pavement, it can handle rough country roads better than a sports bike.
