Goodbye Dee Arr Zee

I’ve had the DRZ for almost 2 years. At 145kg wet, it was the lightest bike I’ve ever owned. Even my Pulsar 200NS (160kg wet) was more obese! I purchased it with the mainly for its low weight to build my off-tarmac confidence. I’ve since slapped on some Chinese wheels and converted it from its SM configuration to the Enduro version and took it on some off-road fun. It was unfortunate that it was acquired just before the borders were closed due to Covid-19, and have thus not had the opportunity to take it through some of Malaysia’s beautiful jungles and plantations.

3 siblings down to 2 now.
Loading up and heading to its new home.
Goodbye little pig! It was fun while it lasted!

It’s got a newfound home now. Farewell DRZ. Go forth and bring plenty of joy to your new owner!

  1. So sad to see it go! thank you for your article about converting your DRZ wheel and rims to off-road style. I am inspired to change my drz400 to off-road rims and tires too! But after looking at aliexpress and saw the set of rim cost $928 + shipping of $200 some more, I think I will save up for a while lol. But definitely love the thinner wheels.

    1. All good things must come to an end. πŸ˜‰

      Well, if you hang out around Carousell for a little while, you might be able to pick up a used set. Though I suspect it’s not gonna be for much less $$$.

  2. I’ve recently gotten my 2B license and I must admit, your blogposts (Pulsar days) resonated with me and also played a part in motivating me to complete the 2B journey.
    Would really love to join you guys on a group ride in Malaysia soon!
