2009_Suzuki_DR-Z400SM.jpg

For 2009, the Suzuki DR-Z400SM is largely unchanged aside from the addition of these new graphics. Available in either black or white, both feature this barbwire backwoods camo graphic. While we like the bike — a simple, rugged, efficient supermoto with a fantastic chassis that easily makes up for the limited power — and the two solid color options, the graphics just don’t work. Barbwire, to us, evokes bad memories of Pam Anderson doing unspeakable things to Tommy Lee, while the camo print smacks of side-by-side ATVs and deer bait. Unless Suzuki is really going after the lucrative white trash demo, we fail to understand what these graphics are doing on a supermoto that’s perfect for the city. Let’s hope that like the graffiti CBR600RR, these are stickers that’ll easily peel off, leaving you with a handsome, solid-colored motorcycle.
