The DRZ is a really nice bike and fun to ride. However if you were getting a new one I feel they are priced quite high. $7000 is a little costly I think. They also aren't the fastest making them a great side street or around town bike.
Thanks for the input, I probably won't be going new since it's my first street legal bike. I had a KDX220 a few years back and it was a blast on the trails but would not have made much of a street bike. I'll have a look around for a KTM, I never really thought much about them for a Motard style bike but I do know they make a helluva nice trail and MX bike.
