recently announced its 2012 lineup of off-road equipment. Earlier we unveiled Team Yellow’s updates to its MX and ATV line, but for the upcoming year Suzuki has bolstered its two-wheeled offerings with the addition of a trail bike. Inspired by motocross design, the DR-Z125 is just the ticket for beginning off-road riders.
The 2012 Suzuki DR-Z125 combines the looks of an MX bike with entry-level performance for beginning riders.
The model features a 124cc four-stroke air-cooled engine with a wide powerband and tractable torque. With styling taken directly from the championship-winning RM-Z line of MX bikes, the DR-Z125 includes sharply angled fenders to give it a more aggressive appearance. Suzuki is also offering the DR-Z125L model, which has full-sized 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels. The 125L model is a great choice for larger rides who still want an entry-level model and price point.
“The DR-Z125 and DR-Z125L are excellent, versatile bikes that deliver legendary Suzuki value and quality,” said Suzuki’s Senior Communications Manager Steve Bortolamedi, “The advanced race-inspired technology and RM-Z styling is incorporated into the DR-Z125 and DR-Z125L, making them excellent off-road machines on the trail or track. They are the perfect bike for the entire family of riders looking for fun, versatile, off-road performance.”
In addition to the more aggressively styled fenders the fuel tank, seat and number plates are also copied over from the brand’s MX bikes. The result is a bike that looks like it belongs on the track but is built for a variety of off-road encounters.
