Memorable Motorcycle: Suzuki DR350 Photo Gallery
Hiding underneath the innocuous veneer of the Suzuki DR350 is a bike that will leave you smiling.
See photos of the Suzuki DR3500 and Frank Melling having a ball aboard the smooth-running dual-sport.
The DR350 will tackle tough trails and cruise comfortably on the highway.
Melling felt the bike was so user-friendly that even beginners would be encouraged to push their performance envelope.
With a 2.3 gallon tank and less than half gallon reserve, the DR350 requires frequent gas stops.
Suzuki engineered a bike geared toward the mass market when they came out with the DR350.
The air-cooled, four-valve single-cylinder engine is reliable and lively.
Some serious dirt bike riders criticize the soggy suspension, but amateur riders will traverse bumps and ruts with relative ease
The riding position won't allow you to perform well on a Supercross track, but will leave you comfortable on the freeway.
The paint job on the DR350 was the main detriment to an otherwise solid bike, in Melling's opinion.
Mint condition DR's are appreciating in value, though used models can still be found for under $1,000.
Overall the DR350 got Melling's stamp of approval.
