High-Performance Machine Arrives in the Off-road Arena

Compact, lightweight and agile like a motocrosser, along with the broad, tractable power and torque of a large-displacement 4-stroke engine – you can have it all with the DR-Z400E.
A powerful engine, narrowly shaped and highly rigid frame, longtravel suspension, large disc brakes and lightweight wheels – all come together for exhilarating, dirt-kicking, mud-slinging and hill-climbing performance.
