    Would you be interested in a NEW, modernized Suzuki DR350?

    Poll: If you were in the market for a NEW dual sport motorcycle, would you buy a reintroduced Suzuki DR 350 with electronic fuel injection, a factory oil cooler as standard, modern digital instrumentation, and modern styling, for around $7,000? In my view this would be the perfect bike because it could really do everything, from pretty decent extreme enduro stuff on the weekends, to 50k+ miles of highway commuting, adventure riding, and RTW trips.


    KJ, just KJ, ok.


    Current rides:
    2004 GMC Sierra 1500, 1999 Toyota 4Runner

    Past rides: 2015 Yamaha XT 250, 1997 Suzuki DR 200, 2007 Honda Ruckus, 2007 Yamaha TW 200, 2007 Kawasaki Ninja 500, 2009 Kawasaki KLX331S; 1994 GMC Sierra 1500, 1987 Nissan Pathfinder, 1992 Acura Integra, 1986 Honda CRX, 1989 Jeep Cherokee, 1994 Chevrolet Astro Van, 1979 Volkswagen Rabbit, 1984 Jeep Cherokee

    No, but I'd be interested in one with none of that stuff except the oil cooler for around $5500. Then again, I think the DR-Z400 is pretty close to perfect for much of what you mention.

    Well, let's see...no sixth gear, no EFI, no modern digital instrumentation, no modern styling, 60 pounds heavier. Did I miss anything? LOL you know I do love the 650 though, Rob!

    What I find kind of interesting is that I posted the same poll on a couple Facebook groups, but there seems to be a lot more interested in this bike, here on TW forum. Lots of "no thanks" votes on FB lol.

    Okay... then the other version exists: The KTM 690 Enduro. Only its price is insane... near $11k I believe.

    That's because you aren't Facebook friends with Austin Vince like I am.
