2019 Suzuki DR650S vs DRZ400S – Spec Review

Both these motorcycles are rather low-spec, and choosing one or the other really depends on what you want. The DRZ400 is newer and comes with a high-revving 398cc DOHC mill. It is also bigger, with a higher ground clearance when compared to the DR650S. This makes it a better off-roader.

The DR650S has a higher capacity mill delivering more grunt on the lower-end. It performs when on the trail but is heavier with low ground clearance. It has a bigger fuel tank too, so this one will fare better as a touring motorcycle for the occasional off-road-goers.
