Suzuki V-Strom DL650 'Dana', Hire from $99/day

Meet 'Dana', our ultra low seat Suzuki Vstrom DL650 - a combination of low seat option and lowered suspension bring the seat height down to a very manageable 77cm. Comes fully equipped with a full set of luggage, heated grips, Givi Airflow screen plus of course the super reliable v-twin engine make this a hire motorbike difficult to fault. Standard seat option also available.

The Suzuki DL650 (often known as the “Wee”) is more than capable of handling anything you're likely to encounter on your New Zealand tour. They're built rugged, reliable and with a range in excess of 400km are ideally suited to long days in the saddle. If covering great distances is your thing, or you just want to cruise on gently, then the DL650's remarkable reliability, middleweight, fuel economy, mule-like carrying capabilities and comfort, will win you over. Not wanting to start a 'which bike is best' war but fair to say we've had Harley riders convert to V-Stroms after riding them....

These motorcycle pack a big punch for a 650cc machine, acceleration is smooth through the rev range with power pouring in as the engine speed increases.  Excellent braking, excellent handling, excellent, excellent excellent.
