Building a classic inspired scrambler usually means reaching for a simple road bike donor and converting it for some dusty backroad duties. But on the other side of the coin is sourcing a reliable enduro or adventure bike that already has the off road requirements sorted and making it more classic looking.
The usual ‘road bike donor’ scramblers are great for turning down that dirt road when the asphalt ends, but if you want to explore a little further off the beaten path sometimes a road bike base can be left wanting.
Enter the Suzuki DR650. Largely unchanged for 20 years, as far as dual sport motorcycles go they’re a proven reliable package that’s hard to go past as a great all rounder for the no frills purchase price.
