Don’t be fooled however. Like all motorcycles it has its flaws. The engine could be a little peppier and more exciting, and it would be nice if the bike could shed a few pounds. Also, don’t forget the DR-Z400S has remained almost completely unchanged since its initial release nearly 20 years ago. So, here at _Dirt Rider_, we took the opportunity to take a good bike and make it better. With the arrival of a brand-new, pearly white 2019 Suzuki DR-Z400S at our office, we decided to create what I would consider my 400 dual-sport dream build. With the help of amazing and trusted companies such as Keihin, FMF Racing, Acerbis, Supersprox, Dunlop Tires, TM Designworks, IMS Products, Renthal, ODI Grips, and Doubletake Mirror, we dressed up the DR-Z400S like it was going to the senior prom.
