2014 Suzuki DR650SE
Big fun for low bucks!
Nothing, really. I was initially disappointed in the performance due to the EPA mandated jetting and muffler. I replaced the entire exhaust system with the FMF Powerbomb header pipe with the Q4 silencer, and added the ProCycle intake kit that included the jetting kit, K&N air filter and instructions for installation and trimming the airbox. PRESTO! It's a brand new motorcycle! Runs smoother and cooler, better power across the band, idles evenly with no popping or sputtering, and doesn't stall when the throttle is suddenly whacked on to lift the front wheel over an obstacle. Best "bang for the buck" performance wise!
Stone simple, user friendly and not half bad to look at neither! I wasn't sure about the battleship gray paint scheme until I saw it in person; now I love it. HIGHLY recommend!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Good review, I have been on the fence as to getting a DR 650 for two years now. One thing I have found - they sure hold their used value well compared to most other dual sports.
Parts are cheap and worldwide, information on servicing and maintenance is readily available; one of the lightest bikes in its class, what more could a person want?
I have never read a negative review of the bike.
