The Suzuki DR-Z400 is a dual purpose motorcycle manufactured by Suzuki. It is powered by a single-cylinder, 398 cm3 (24.3 cu in), liquid cooled four-stroke engine.

Kawasaki marketed a private labeled version of the DR-Z known as the KLX400 - it is nearly identical to the DR-Z400 except for bodywork and some accessories.[2]

The DR-Z is used by the Australian Army and is slightly modified for the Army role.

The DR-Z400 has been produced in four variants:

  • DR-Z400 - kick-start, not street legal
  • DR-Z400E - electric-start, not street legal (US), street legal (AUS)
  • DR-Z400S - street legal (headlight, taillight, turn signals, mirrors and horn)
  • DR-Z400SM - Supermoto, street legal, comes standard with 17-inch (430 mm) sportbike inspired wheels, oversize front and rear brakes, RMZ rear swing-arm and inverted forks.
