Our own creation | 2019 Suzuki DR650SE Adventure
Posted on by Motorcycles R Us
Although this is not the first time we’ve played with this idea, this time around we’ve experimented with a few changes that suit today’s interests and rider feedback from other additions and modifications.
Meet our 2019 Suzuki DR650SE demonstrator, Adventure model you could say.
Anyone who’s been offroad in the last decade would have seen something towards a DR650 with mods and additions to suit longer rides, or heavier riders than factory standard, or just plain right want improvement over the standard bike.
Considering two starting factors today we had a good base to start with. The current model DR650SE retails on road for $8990 without discounts. And, Suzuki’s current promotion being active, where you score at no cost a genuine alloy bash plate, genuine Barkbuster reinforced hand protectors, and a genuine rear rack for your goodies. And with a rebate in place, that reduces the price a little more.
Then we added our own extras. An Acerbis 25L tank in black (to match the existing black plastics of the 2019 model), a super-comfy Seat Concepts seat, Click N Ride LED blinker set which are removable for when in the dirt and no blinkers required (fire trail) so you don’t snap them when your bike goes down plus they look great being LED over the incandescent standard amber units, a Delkevic stainless silencer, a jetting kit for better power delivery, Pivot Pegz for much improved footing, B&B Oil Cooler Protector, and what you cannot see, the Forks and Springs front and rear have been drastically improved to handle weight better especially carrying more fuel.
And being our demo, we registered it single seating so pillion pegs are off. DR650SE’s traditionally are dual seat registerable (if in Queensland you understand what I’m saying) but single seat rego is a year-round saving if you don’t pillion, which is nearly every DR650SE rider in our opinion.
We could kit a bike up similar to this for you for around $12,500 ride away, depending on pricing at the time of the bike and the extras. When you think about all that’s been done here, that’s massive value for a very capable and trusted trail bike. We’ve only had the bike out not even 24hrs in front of the store and 5 people have asked about it. More attention than some other high priced clever machines.
We’re aiming this set up towards those who are not after electronics, or mapping, or ABS and traction systems that are adjustable; in other words, the old school buyer who wants simplicity but doesn’t want to miss out on having the gear that suits their off road riding. Especially fuel range. Changing that tank makes a massive difference, and then setting the suspension up to suit makes for a very decent ride. Even pushing it around is easy. Imagine how far you could get and still feel great too.
Drop in and see the team upstairs in accessories and spares, plus the Service Centre who put this amazing package together, and check it out yourself in person. We won’t sell this anytime soon and we have brand new DR650SE’s in stock for the model year 2019.

The Suzuki Katana. It’s back for 2020.
Posted on by Motorcycles R Us
The Katana name is as strong with Suzuki as it Hayabusa, maybe stronger. And for good reason. Originally designed from 1979 by a design team lead by ex-BMW design chief Hans Muth, Suzuki wanted an updated image for the brand from the standard mass produced fanfare. And the three-man Target Design team certainly delivered.
At the 1980 Intermot in Germany, Suzuki released the Katana based on the GS1100, claiming it to be the fastest street production bike in the world. It was a sales success globally. With variants and changes throughout it’s life including various shapes, motors, engine capacities and names (some countries didn’t use the Katana name), even country specific models for Australia and New Zealand, the Katana was in production until 2006. And now at the same show it was first released, the 2020 Suzuki Katana is back.
Calling on design cues from the historic 1981 GSX1100S Katana, the actual Katana is a long, single-edged sword used by Japanese samurai. The design of the iconic variant and now this new model pay tribute to this.
Powered by a 999cc long strong 4 cylinder fuel injected 110kW motor, with 6 speed gearbox with back torque slipper clutch, the Katana will be Suzuki’s best street weapon yet.
A 3 mode traction control system, Bosch lightweight ABS braking unit, 310mm front disc rotors with Brembo’s, fully adjustable inverted forks, a compact lightweight chassis, 215kg wet weight, 825mm seat height and 2125mm overall length round out the mechanical specifications for the new Katana.
For appearances, the LED lighting set a unique design for oncoming vehicles and the rider at night. A Katana-specific instrument display, along with blacked out exhaust, clean tail section, two-toned seat, and signture Katana design mean this will answer what the world has asked for when the return of the Katana was requested by motorcycle fans globally.
This is Suzuki’s first model to be announced for 2020 model year, known as the 2020 GSX-S1000S Katana, in one colour – Metallic Mystic Silver. Pricing and release dates are yet to be announced by Suzuki Australia, stay tuned for more information as it comes to hand. More images below.
