Welcome to the Suzuki DR-Z250 motorcycle specifications and showroom review for 2021. The DR-Z250 is LAMS compliant and learner friendly if you fit.
The Suzuki DR-Z250 has been around for nearly 20 years essentially unchanged. Clearly a decent trail motorbike it still makes it in to the 10 ten class sales. However the competition has released and upgraded their range and it is not a surprise that the DR-Z250 is no longer sold new but according to the FACI was still available in 2019, which was when the stats where published. I will be reviewing those models as part of this new series on the most popular and best selling trail motorcycles.
The Suzuki DRZ250 is a compromised design, built for on and off road riding. Technically the DR-Z250 is relatively simple engine still equipped with Carbs, air/oil cooled engine and high rise suspension. Old schools light bulbs, instrument panel and plastics age the design. In 2021 would you buy the DR-Z250 on looks and engine specs without considering the competition? The answer is only if you are a Suzuki fan or the price is right. It seems that more people buy them if the price is right and the DR-Z250 is slightly more expensive than the competition which does not help.
As a result the Suzuki DR-Z250 is 9th most popular and best selling Trail motorbike in Australia 2019 selling 113 units. This sales number is down from 203 in 2018. Since the DR-Z250 is no longer sold as a new model in 2021 you have to choose between the DR650 or DR-Z400 or DR200S.
