I was looking at a SM, the problem is I couldn't find any with street wheels :(

One day when I have a garage I'll get one, for now the Versys will make do.

Get a $2000 DRZ-S and spend $500 on some SM wheelies. You can keep or sell the dirt tires.

Supermoto brakes = Gravity + Friction

How many cam chains?!?

Here is another deal on an XRR, 2sets of rims (dirt and SM), all the goodies, faster, lighter, and cheaper than those DRZs you listed!

All DRZ SM's come with 17" tard wheels, only the "S" and the "E" come with dirt wheels

another idea to bounce around. I like the team Yamaha colors.

You sure they're SM's and not a "S" ?

DRZ "S"/"E"



DRZ "SM"

Well the SM's that have 21/18 wheels are not worth 3500, maybe 2300. They lost the value with no sm wheels :/

Easy to tell a DRZSM, they have inverted forks and 320mm brake rotor, while all others have conventional forks. You can put a 320 brake on a standard DRZ, but you can't put the smaller rotor on an SM. This makes them vulnerable in technical terrain, even with a 21" front wheel.

It looks in pretty good shape to me and has about $3k in aftermarket parts, so if you buy it for $4k, you're getting the bike for a grand. If you buy a newer bike, you'll spend thousands to get all the stuff you need, guards, sliders, pipes, seat, etc., etc. Plus with a 400-450, the engine will either be much less powerful or be much less reliable and you'll be rebuilding the engine more often. The XRR is built like a brick s#*t house for the Baja 1000 and makes big power stock
