2020 Suzuki DR650S

The 2020 Suzuki DR650S is a dual-sport motorcycle that is more at home off the road than on the street but still offers tons of on-road capability. Looking and acting more like a dirtbike than a street bike, this model is the biggest in the dual-sport portion of the Suzuki lineup.

The bike gets an air-cooled single-cylinder engine with a carburetor and a displacement of 644cc. The engine makes 44 hp and 40 lb-ft of torque, and it is mated to a five-speed manual transmission. The DR650S is a bike built for multiple environments but you’ll find it more off-road ready than many other motorcycles out there.

The Suzuki DR650S is a tried and true machine that dirt bike riders who need a street bike will absolutely love. It has a large enough engine to be highway-capable and is still as maneuverable as it needs to be. The DR650S has a starting price of $6,699.

The motorcycle is available in only one color, and that color is Solid Iron Grey.

2020 Suzuki DR650S Features

Engine Features

The compact and powerful, 644cc, SOHC, four-stroke, air- and oil-cooled engine features the Suzuki Advanced Cooling System (SACS). Piston-jet cooling and an engine oil cooler create consistent performance in a variety of conditions.

The engine is tuned with an emphasis on performance in the low- to mid-rpm range, while a gear-driven balancer shaft minimizes vibration for a comfortable ride.

Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)-coated aluminum cylinder is used for durability, light weight, and excellent heat dissipation.

Digitally-mapped DC-CDI ignition system provides accurate spark timing for efficient combustion.

A convenient electric starter (supplemented with a zero-maintenance automatic decompression system) provides easy, quick starting.

Large Mikuni 40mm carburetor provides a smooth intake flow and quick throttle response.

The stainless steel exhaust system is light and corrosion resistant and is tuned specifically for strong low- and mid-range power.

Easy-pull, rack-and-pinion activated clutch provides precise operation and feel.

A smooth-shifting five-speed transmission is complemented by a sealed O-ring drive chain.

Chassis Features

A lightweight, compact, rigid semi-double cradle frame provides agile handling on- and off-road.

Innovative, height-adjustable* front fork provides smooth and progressive action. Large diameter, thin-walled tubes reduce unsprung weight, while maintaining high rigidity.

A link-type rear suspension with piggyback style, aluminum-body shock absorber provides stable performance. The height adjustable* shock features adjustable spring preload and compression damping to personalize the suspension for rider, load, and terrain.

Front and rear suspensions provide generous 260mm (10.2-inch) wheel travel for superb performance over rough terrain.

Lightweight 290mm (11.4-inch) front floating disc brake with two-piston caliper and 240mm (9.4-inch) rear disc brake with two-piston caliper provide reliable stopping power.

Aluminum rims with stainless steel spokes are standard and built for durability and strength.

The wheels are fitted with 90/90-21 front and 120/90-17 dual-sport rear tires that offer excellent on- and off-road traction.

Hollow-type wheel axles and an aluminum, beam-style swingarm reduce unsprung weight.

A long, comfortable seat, aluminum footpegs, and grab handles allow you to carry a passenger with ease.

*Seat and suspension height is adjustable by your Suzuki Dealer, using a Genuine Suzuki Accessory kit.

Electrical Features

DR650S is powered by a lightweight and compact, low-maintenance battery.

A fully equipped lighting system comes with a bright 60/55-watt halogen headlight.

Additional Features

Seat height may be lowered by 40 mm (1.6 inches) using a Genuine Suzuki Accessory kit. The kit includes a shorter side stand to match the chassis height adjustment.

Further seat height reduction is possible with the fitment of the Suzuki Accessory low-profile seat.

Other Genuine Suzuki Accessories include a cargo rack and skid plate, and a selection of Suzuki apparel is available.

12-month limited warranty. Longer coverage periods with other benefits are available through Suzuki Extended Protection (SEP).
