New DR650s available in Europe??

Hi all - I'm new to ADV Rider so forgive me if I've posted this in the incorrect location. I live in Mongolia. I purchased a Chinese bike that the locals ride and have had some fun on it but am thinking seriously about buying a bigger bike.

I've decided a new or near new DR650 is the bike for me but there are no Suzuki dealers here and only a couple of places that sell 2nd hand Japanese bikes. Not that keen on buying a 2nd hand bike in country. So looks like I'm going to have to import something.

It would make sense to try and find a bike in Europe but from the research I've done it doesn't look like Suzuki distribute the DR650 in Europe/UK. Same for China and Russia. Can anyone confirm if this is the case? At this stage the only alternative appears to be shipping a bike from the States/Canada. From the browsing I've done it looks like you can get a new bike for around the $5,000 mark. Much cheaper than my home country Australia.

Thanks in advance, Ben

In Austria and Germany the DR 650 SE had been discontinued after the year 2000. Maybe they were sold a bit longer in Ireland? But today DRs are only sold to the US, Australia and New Zealand AFAIK. The reason why I ride my 18 year old bike ...
