Hello everyone, i'm going to be buying a KTM this winter. I work at a Honda/Suzuki dealership but need more than the Dr-z 400sm had to offer (six speed and fuel injection) so I sold it and am looking at the 690 smc and 690 duke, or possibly a clean low mileage 625. Supermoto rules!

DRz

So, how long did you have the Suzuki and why didn't you like it? I briefly considered it, the price was attractive, but the look just didn't do anything for me.

Doesn't Yamaha have a 250 SM now? I think a 250 would seem a bit underpowered for the street, but it would make an inexpensive and fun commuter bike.

Pics Of It

Looks weren't the problem, I actually like the looks when I got done with it. It was the lack of a six speed. The power sucked too, but that could have been addressed if it would have had the 6 speed.

Wow

Nice transformation from stock.

I found that 6th gear on my Duke was nearly unusable before I went down 1 tooth on the front. If you are going with an aftermarket exhaust and remap the stock gearing should be fine. If you're short on cash a $25 sprocket can make a big difference.
