2015 Suzuki DR200S First Look

Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Suzuki claims a stake in the low-displacement dual sport market once again with its 2015 DR200S. The 2015 model features many of the characteristics of the 2013 DR200SE but comes in new Champion Yellow or black body work.

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.

So, it has a 3.3 gallon tank and listed range of almost 350 miles, do the math folks Suzuki is onto something with this bike at 100MPG! I ride a 2012 Suzuki DL650, and in summer 2014 I already have 42,000 miles on it, Suzuki makes a great bike. Sure you can pay more for something with a few more bells and whistles, but they sure do right by me. One of these will be in our garage and on the trail with my 4 year old while she rides her Suzuki JR50!

Funny thing is the banner ad when I looked at this was for the Suzuki GW250 - twice the number of cylinders, fuel-injection, and a new design, for $3,999 - why is an old-tech dual-sport that has been around for years $500 *more*?

Suzuki did a nice job with the press release. That is a lot of words to say "Now with new colors!"

Would have been nice if Suzuki had realized this is the 21st Century, and added fuel injection. I would spend more for a Honda CRF250L or Yamaha XT250 just to avoid the starting (if the bike is not ridden for a week or two) and warm-up issues.
