Iconic DR-Z400E Gets Cape York Treatment


Suzuki’s DR-Z400E is synonymous with Cape York. Local tour operators have trusted the legendary DR-Z to power their motorcycle fleets for over two decades. For MY20 Suzuki is recognising this remarkable feat by introducing the DR-Z400E Cape York Edition. 

The Cape York Edition includes $1000 worth of extras that amplifies the DR-Z’s off-road ability, taking common upgrades undertaken by Australian customers and providing them at no charge at time of purchase. 

Starting with ProTaper SE aluminium handlebars and MX Tri Density grips which provide greater strength and increased rider comfort, especially for those long days in the saddle.

Protection has also been enhanced all round with the addition of the Genuine Suzuki aluminium bashplate, radiator guards and Barkbuster hand guards ensuring the DR-Z is more than up to taking on Australia’s harshest conditions.

Taking grip to the next level is the Pirelli Scorpion tyres that suit the wide variety of off road terrain that Australia has to offer.

Last year marked a sales milestone recording over 20,000 DR-Z400E motorcycles sold in Australia since its introduction.  

A living testament to Suzuki’s engineering team that a motorcycle relatively unchanged since its introduction eighteen years ago is still as popular with weekend warriors today.

“The DR-Z400E is still a popular choice for weekend warriors because it offers such exceptional value for money, with the introduction of the new Cape York Edition, this value has been amplified even further” said Suzuki Australia National Marketing Manager, Lewis Croft.

“Suzuki wanted to pay respect to the Cape York motorcycle tour operators who have purchased and relied on the DR-Z400E’s unmatched reliability record, powering their hire-fleets for over 20 years” concluded Croft.
