Again, fairly straightforward fare – the Suzuki DR125SE has a long history, after all and most of the basic mechanicals were carried through from the 1980s – but when it comes to rugged learner trailies there’s not much wrong with that. The Suzuki DR125SE is big enough for larger riders, a doddle ride and relatively comfortable, too, just don’t expect to go dicing with the Aprilia or Cagiva 125 sportsbike boys.
The Suzuki DR125SEis home to a softly tuned, proven, and solid four-stroke single. Identical to that used in Suzuki’s enduring GN125 learner custom. So don’t expect much in the way of thrills from the Suzuki DR125SE but there’s plenty of good-to-honest motive force here.
The Suzuki DR125SE is among the more rugged of the Japanese 125 trailies which is why, although now long in the tooth and never imported in great numbers, there are still some Suzuki DR125SEs around. Basic mechanicals and cycle parts are fine if looked after with no major reliability issues.
There aren’t many Suzuki DR125SEs about, which helps keeps used values up, but if you find a good un’ they’re decent value and you could be onto a winner – all the rugged peace of mind and style of , say, a Yamaha XT125, but with a whole bundle more exclusivity. Find a Suzuki DR125 for sale.

What you see is what you get with the Suzuki DR125SE. Minimal, off-road style switchgear and single clock surrounded by idiot lights; reasonable quality brakes, suspension etc and a token pillion seat. Nothing more, nothing less…
