Suzuki have announced a Tanami Edition DR650SE for 2020 that adds $1200 worth of kit to make the DR more ready for adventure right from the showroom floor.
The ‘Tanami Edition’ is inspired by the remote northern Australian desert; famous for its undulating rocky terrain and rugged scenery and has been developed specifically with Australian adventure riders in mind.
The 20L Acerbis polyurethane fuel tank greatly improves the long-distance legs of the DR650SE over the 13-litre steel tank featured on the normal edition.
Increased range is complimented by the greater protection offered by the Genuine Suzuki aluminium bash plate and Barkbuster VPS hand guards fitted as standard equipment.
The sturdy bash plate features a simple two-bolt design allowing for easy removal and servicing. The hand guards feature full wrap around aluminium design with replaceable high impact resistant plastic shields, which also assist in deflecting wind from the rider’s hands.
Lastly, the Tanami Edition is also supplied with a spare set of Pirelli MT21 tyres, developed specially for on/off-road motorcycles offering flexibility of use on differing terrain types and increased performance in off-road conditions.
Lewis Croft – Suzuki Australia Motorcycle Marketing Manager
“The DR650SE has a rich history in Australia and was the top-selling adventure touring motorcycle sold in Australia in 2018. For MY20 we have injected even more adventure into the DR’s DNA with the introduction of the Tanami Edition; packaged ready for long distance riding around our beautiful country. More than just off-road worthy and boasting an unparalleled reliability record, the DRZ650E offers simplicity, value for money and most importantly the riding enjoyment the model has brought and continues to deliver to so many Australian customers.”
