Features

Chassis Features

  • A narrow frame combines thin chrome-moly steel tubes for exceptional torsional rigidity with minimal weight. The backbone tube, front down tube, and steering head gussets form the dry-sump engine oil tank. A bolt-on aluminum sub-frame helps reduce weight and simplify maintenance.
  • Long travel (11.3 inch), 49 mm cartridge-style fork has protective rubber boots plus adjustable compression / rebound damping and adjustable spring preload for smooth performance on all types of on- and off-road terrain.
  • Rear shock absorber features 11.6 inches of travel, compression damping / preload adjustments, and connects to a lightweight aluminum swingarm through a progressive linkage system.
  • Spoke-style 21 inch front and 18 inch rear wheels with aluminum rims are fitted with Dunlop D208 dual-purpose tires. The wheels are sized perfectly to accept popular dual sport tires.
  • Sure stopping power is supplied by a 250 mm front disc with a dual-piston caliper and a 220 mm rear disc brake with a single-piston caliper.

Electrical Features

  • Electric start system provides convenient operation and features a lightweight starter motor and a compact, 6.5A, maintenance-free battery.
  • Compact digital instrument cluster includes speedometer, odometer, and twin-trip meters with addition / subtraction capability, clock, timer, and stopwatch functions.
  • On-road legal lighting includes bright 60 / 55-watt H4 halogen headlight, compact tail / stoplight, lightweight, rubber-mounted turn signals and horn.

Engine Features

  • A compact design, 398 cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, dry-sump engine produces strong low-rpm power. Its compact, four-valve cylinder head features large 36 mm intake valves and 29 mm exhaust valves to help produce broad, tractable power and torque that’s ready for any terrain.
  • Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Materials (SCEM) cylinder is durable and lightweight and provides superior heat transfer.
  • Digitally-mapped DC-CDI system monitors throttle position/engine rpm and adjusts ignition timing to maintain efficient combustion.
  • Forged aluminum piston is 10 percent lighter than a cast piston and receives additional oil-cooling through a crankcase oil jet.
  • A refined Mikuni 36 mm carburetor, with new deceleration enricher circuit, is fed by a six-liter airbox to provide smooth throttle response when accelerating or engine braking.
  • The left side body cover has quick-release fasteners for easy access to the air filter.
  • The addition of a PAIR (air supply) system to the exhaust helps the motorcycle achieve emissions compliance without affecting performance.
  • Magnesium-alloy clutch, magneto, and head covers contribute to the bike’s low weight.
  • Thermostatically-controlled cooling fan mounted to the left radiator helps maintain consistent operating temperature.

Other Features

  • A pouch on the rear fender carries the tool kit and owner’s manual.
  • Special design mirrors rotate to avoid damage in case of impact.
  • 12-month limited warranty. Longer coverage periods with other benefits are available through Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP).

Transmission Features

  • Compact, five-speed transmission utilizes a cable-operated clutch with a separate magnesium outer cover for simplified clutch maintenance.
  • Low-maintenance, long-life sealed O-ring type drive chain produces minimal sounds when riding.
