DR 650 KEY FEATURES
Compact & lightweight SOHC 4-stroke engine tuned for strong low and midrange power. Engine weight has been reduced through use of a compact crankcase, cylinder, cylinder head, engine covers, and a single counterbalancer system.
SCEM (Suzuki Composite Electro- Chemical Material) plated cylinder is durable, minimizes cylinder size & weight and improves heat
Efficient SACS air/oil cooling system with additional piston-jet cooling and engine oil cooler.
Mikuni 40mm "Slingshot" carburetor enhances throttle response and overall engine performance.
Painted stainless steel exhaust system is light and corrosion resistant, and tuned specifically for strong low and midrange power.

Electric start with automatic decompression
Low maintenance, digital controlled DC-CDI ignition system provides accurate ignition timing and more consistent spark at all engine speeds.
Lightweight and compact maintenance-free battery.
Compact & lightweight frame. Use of thin-wall/large O.D. tubing reduces weight while increasing frame rigidity.
Short wheelbase and seat height provide nimble DualSport performance.
