Be aware that the SM DRZ has much firmer suspension which is not ideal for off-road, though plenty seem to do it.

They also have a larger more powerful front brake.

Can't you get and use a set of wheels from a DRZ (not sure what standard size of DRZ is 18/21??, Or what the SM sizes are.)

CCM used to come two sets of wheels???

The forks are different: S & E have conventional forks, SM inverted.
