I bought my 2006 DR200SE 3 months ago (my first ever street-legal bike). I've already passed the 5000km mark with no indication of slowing down. It handles excellent in the city, but only so-so in mud or sand. Perhaps a wider rear tire could improve this (like the Yamaha TW200). The small air-cooled engine makes maintenance a snap. With the exception of the intital 1000km servicing, I've managed to do all maintenance myself. For the city or the trails it's great, but I found it a little too underpowered for the highway. On a good day I can get 115km/hr out of it, but if there's any kind of head-wind I'm lucky to get 90km/hr. Gas milage is unbeleivable. The 13 litre tank will get me close to 350km in the city before having to switch to reserve. The low weight is a double edged sword. The 250lbs make it a great bike on tight trails, and affords beginner riders a great sense of confidence. However on the highway, the wind can throw the light frame around a bit. I do just fine on the back-trails, but suffer on the highway ride to get there.

My wife has never attempted to ride a motorcycle in her life. She would attend events with me and watch. She asked for her own bike and said she liked the "little Suzuki". Once on the bike, it took her about 20 minutes to feel she was ready to try the trails. She has put 600 miles of trails on the bike. Now she asks me to go ride. When Mom is happy, everyone is happy. Thank you, Suzuki...
