Doesn't mean a thing, unless they were done on the same dyno, same day. 38 hp on one dyno might show up as 32 on another.

The Suzuki DR650 is a long standing model in Suzuki's lineup, introduced in 1990. The DR is a dual-sport motorcycle intended for use on both paved and unpaved roads. This motorcycle is heavier than specialized off-road dirt bikes, but it can handle most conditions when ridden carefully. Its counterbalanced, single-cylinder, air/oil-cooled engine develops 43 peak bhp. It has a 13 liter (3.4 gallon) fuel tank. This motorcycle is commonly described as being useful for all types of motorcycling, without being particularly good at any of them. Many owners regard the DR as an inexpensive adventure touring bike, adding saddle bags and modifications to make it more comfortable on long trips

Just FYI the DR was totally re-done in 1996. I don't think there are any common parts between the pre-1996 and 1996+ models.

HP will be about the same, but as has been pointed out, hp is not the point of these bikes. The DR is lighter and slimmer than the KLR and should be quicker in most situtations imho, but that's kinda like asking if a red box turtle is quicker than a yellow one.....

Don't know about dr's, but have seen several dynoed KLRs. Least was 36hp, and the most was about 40hp. My old beater read 37hp.

I have a KLR ('98) and a DR ('97), and FWIW, I couldn't say which one feels faster. Neither feels as fast as my '86 XL600R, which has "arm-stretching" acceleration. Of course, that could be the riding position as much as anything.

Depends... on the quantity of gas in the tank and fat on yer ass.

Add them together and divide by .354 and you get 205
