Powered by the same 199cc air-cooled Single as the 2013 version, the 2015 DR200S features a Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material-coated cylinder for lighter weight and increased durability. The mill fires to life via electric start while a digitally regulated CDI system manages ignition timing. The DR200S features a five-speed transmission with wet multi-plate clutch.
The 2015 DR200S rolls on a double-cradle steel pipe frame and soaks up bumps through a telescopic fork and single spring at the rear, which features preload adjustability. Both suspension components travel through 8.1 inches. A single disc brake handles stopping out front while a drum unit provides braking out back.
The major changes featured on the new version of ‘Zook’s little dual sport are in the ergonomics department, with a redesigned fuel tank providing a wider range of seating options for riders of different sizes. The seat is now rounder as well, also to provide a more comfortable ride. Suzuki states that the styling updates, marked by the Champion Yellow option, are drawn from its popular RM-Z dirt bike line.
MSRP for the 2015 DR200S is listed at $4499.
Riders in the market for low-displacement off-road machines will also want to look at the returning DR-Z125L, which comes in Champion Yellow for 2015, features a 124cc Single and more dirt-friendly design. MSRP for the 2015 DR-Z125L is set at $3199.
