2011 Suzuki DR650 for Sale in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (or Ciudad del Este, Paraguay)

I am currently in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, but it is my understanding that it is easiest to legally buy and sell a motorcycle in Asuncion or Ciudad del Este, Paraguay. Info on this bike may be viewed on my website www.TheAdventureBegins.tv

For more info contact me at: troyfromtexas(at)gmail(dot)com.

In August 2011, I purchased a new 2011 Suzuki DR650 motorcycle for a trip through South America. The motorcycle has a clear title and registration in Austin, Texas, USA. The engine, exhaust, chassis and suspension have been maintained in the original (stock) configuration.

Hi Will,

The bike is ready to be sold. I'll be in Rio de Janeiro from September to the end of October. If I'm unable to sell the bike I will simply take her home with me. I' was just thinking that this bike was built for adventure motorcyling and could be an excellent bike for someone in South America or beyond.

I'll send you a pm as well.
