Suzuki has a Dr200 model that is quiet popular in south and central America. A bit strange they put out a new smaller model...
Maybe its to challenge Hondas Xr150L that is the most popular model by far in south and central America...
The DR200 is the DR-X in Colombia: DRX

Looking at the Suzuki Indonesia line up: SUZUKI Indonesia | PT Suzuki Indomobil Motor the DR150 fits right in.
And in the Thai line up too: Motorcycle - Thai Suzuki Motor

So I think it will be made in one of the 2 SE Asian factories, not sure about the America's.
One reason is the source of the components; China, which is easier in ASEAN countries......
Drum rear brake isn't a good sign, probably carburettor too knowing Suzuki
