Hot On & Off the Road

Whether you're on a local dirt-kicking, mud-slinging trail ride, adventure ride or dodging traffic and pedestrians on your daily commute, the 2021 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 398cc engine is precisely integrated into the highly rigid frame and provides broad, tractable power and torque of a large-displacement 4-stroke engine.

The DR-Z400E is fitted with powerful disc brakes and lightweight aluminium wheels, and push-button, electric start.

The hottest trail bike on the market and you can ride it on the road!
