DR-Z250

Weekday commuter to weekend adventure

There is good reason middleweight off-road bikes are so popular; they offer abundant power combined with lightweight handling. With the 2018 DR-Z250 you can enjoy the trail ride in the weekend, then commute to work during the week.

Grab a handful of throttle and you’ll be rewarded with a broad spread of power from the oil-cooled motor, backed up with a slick 6-speed transmission and disc brakes front and rear. It comes equipped with electric start (with a kick-start back-up) and when the terrain gets rough, you can count on the DR-Z250’s long-travel suspension for a plush ride.

So whether you are out trail riding, involved in the daily commute or working around the farm, the DR-Z250 is always ready for action.
