Hot on and off the road
Whether you are on a local dirt-kicking, mud-slinging trail ride, adventure rides or dodging traffic and pedestrians on your daily commute, the DR-Z400E is the bike to do it all.
It’s light, and with advanced long-travel multi-adjustable suspension front and rear, it’s agile. The compact liquid-cooled high-compression-ratio 398 cc engine is precisely integrated into the highly rigid frame and provides broad, tractable power and torque of a large-displacement 4-stroke engine.
The 2017 DR-Z400E is fitted with powerful disc brakes and lightweight aluminium wheels, plus push-button, electric starting.
The hottest trail bike on the market plus the ability to ride it on the road.
