The DR650SE Tanami Edition – UPDATED

EDIT:
Previous post notified to buy online with Suzuki Australia.
All those available bikes are now sold out.
We, the dealer, are expecting bikes that we can sell in-store.
Place your order and deposit with us to secure yours before they are all sold out.
All standard, non-Tanami Editions, are sold and no longer available.

HAS THE DR650SE BEEN DISCONTINUED FOR AUSTRALIA?
Yes, the final bikes in storage to sell will be the last ever.

WHY?
Newly introduced ABS braking laws that came in to effect late 2021. If a motorcycle, that is already on sale (not freshly introduced) does not have ABS braking, it can no longer be imported to sell. The DR650SE, being of certain dimensions for seat height, suspension travel and seating capacity falls in to a road-going type of bike, versus say the DR-Z400E with recently minor modifications is an offroad motorcycle. ABS laws only apply to road-type motorcycles.

WILL SUZUKI RELEASE AN UPDATED MODEL THEN?
No, they have clarified this is the end of the line and no replacement motorcycle has been designed or engineered.

THAT MUST BLOW A NUMBER OF SALES FOR A WELL LOVED MODEL?
Yes it does. Those who have them best take care and nurture their now hard to find DR650SE.

WILL PARTS BE AVAILABLE?
Yes, Suzuki are well known for supporting models for a long time after production is over.

BUT THE DR650SE IS AVAILABLE OVERSEAS?
In some markets yes, just like many other variants of models we don’t have here but other countries have to sell. The ABS laws prevent the DR650SE being sold here anymore regardless if Suzuki can manufacturer it.

IS THE TANAMI KIT BUILT ON THE BIKE IN THE FACTORY?
No, the kit is in-stock with the bike with Suzuki Australia and once ordered, will be shipped to us, the dealer, for fitment upon assembly and pre-delivery.

DO YOU HAVE SHOWROOM STOCK?
See above ‘edit’.

DO YOU HAVE A DEMONSTRATOR?
No, we never will again. These are in run out.

CAN I ORDER ONLINE WITH YOU IN-STORE?
Not any more, all online available bikes have been sold forever.

I CAN’T VISIT THE STORE, CAN I ORDER ONLINE MYSELF AT HOME OR WORK?
Yes, visit Suzuki’s website, place your order and select us as your pick-up dealer. We’ll take it from there once the order’s received as Suzuki will send all the details and confirmation of order to us.

HOW LONG WILL THE BIKE TAKE TO ARRIVE?
Suzuki will dispatch the bikes at their own pace.

I WANTED A COLOUR BUT YOU CANNOT GUARANTEE THIS?
This is the end of the line for this bike, we can only offer what arrives.

DO I HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
To us, yes, to prevent those acting as if they will buy but are not really, which wrecks it for genuine buyers.

DO I GET THE STANDARD BITS LIKE THE TANK?
Yes, the bike arrives with these fitted and are removed for the Tanami Pack to be installed.

DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR THE TANAMI KIT INSTALLATION?
No, Suzuki are paying us to do that for you.

I BOUGHT A 2021 DR650SE BEFORE THIS WAS ANNOUNCED. DO I GET A KIT?
No, this promotion is for online orders only and the bike including the kit is more expensive than a standard bike.

CAN I BUY A TANAMI KIT FOR MY EXISTING DR650SE?
Yes, if still available. Suzuki have at time of writing more kits than bikes allowing owner’s to buy their own kit. Talk to our Spares & Accessories Team to order yours and for pricing. Installation is available too at extra cost.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE BIKES ARE ALL SOLD OUT?
Suzuki will either remove the bike from their site, or leave it listed with SOLD OUT written and no way to order. Don’t muck about; these could sell fast depending on quantity and national demand.

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT A TANAMI KIT DR650SE BUT A STANDARD BIKE?
Contact us as we may have one or two bikes left to come from stock. This could suit you say if you own a DR650SE already with many extras and want a second bike to park up for when your current one no longer works. We have had customers already do this since they know they are finished.

HOW MUCH IS THE DR650SE TANAMI EDITION?
$11,890 ride away in Queensland with 12 months dual seat registration. Single seat registration is also available. This is the national price.

I WANT ONE. WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
Visit our store, sit with a Sales Team Member and place your order with us.

We can assist with a finance application if this is your preferred final way to pay.

If we have more orders than Suzuki supply bikes, we will refund your deposit. No guarantee of supply is able to be provided.
