Suzukis mini range has long been a popular choice among budding riders, and the 2015 DR-Z70 has proven to be the perfect choice for those who crave 67cc of fun in a 22.0-inch tall package for $1,799. As a motorcross bike, the DR-Z70 expresses familiar traits found in the bigger 4-stroke Suzukis, leading many young riders to grow incredibly fond of these yellow rippers.

"Suzuki snuck 20 extra cc and an electric starter into the young kids’ bike class; go watch the frustration grow when a kid has trouble kickstarting a bike and you’ll see how much that electric start can make learning more fun."
