DR-Z400E 2018

A GOOD MATE

This is the bike that, unlike any other, fits the description of a dirt-churning weapon. The bike that year after year rocks its rivals, this year comes loaded with high-tech ammunition. The DR-Z's motivation comes from 398cc of displacement, DOHC with four huge valves and liquid cooling. The forged piston is 10% lighter than one conventionally cast, an L-shaped top piston ring reduces blow-by, while copious use of aluminium and magnesium lowers weight and improves heat transfer.

Putting this power into practice you get a thumper producing great wads of power right off the bottom, a strong delivery that builds right through the mid range and enough torque to grunt you up anything. No wider than many 250's, yet just as agile, the seat is comfortably rounded, the steering poised and precise. The frame is thin-wall, chrome-moly steel tubing in a combination of round and rectangular cross-section, delivering superb rigidity with minimum weight.

Toss it around, hammer it through whoops, the compliant, long travel front forks feature large, 49mm stanchion tubes. Rear suspension features a Showa rear shock with both high and low speed compression adjustment. Everything you want, including wide RM-Z style footpegs and a lightweight headlight unit. The 100% street legal and learner approved DR-Z400E. Electrifying your adrenaline like no 400 has ever done before.
