The V-Strom trades strength in a single area for adaptability to a variety of riding conditions: To me nothing else comes close for grin factor the engine is just brilliant! A superb all rounder that does most things well and some things utterly brilliantly! Good all rounder with inadequate rear suspension, lousy tires and tire life, needs quite a bit to make it a first rate ride. Upgrade rear spring and shock and better tires, add some givi bags and a decent windshield and you have created a truly fun, sport tourer thats way more fuel efficient than most sportbikes, real usable power, change the front sprocket to a 16 or 17 tooth cog and you still have ample grunt but can cruise at real world slab speeds without wringing the snot out of the engine. Ground Clearance mm 6. Never once did I feel uneasy while banked over in a corner.

They make great desktop images. While d6l50 having immense character at first sight the Vstrom grows on you and I have never felt so at ease with a bike cl650 cross winds, on wet roads and over pot-holed tarmac, where for the price the Vstrom is impressively stable, poised and unruffled. Its a nice metallic orange with black trim, engine guards and protection plate. When I picked up the bike, my first impression of the V-Strom was the comfortable seating position.
I fitted a Givi touring screen which has improved things. The seat is for my taste to scooped out and curved, so there is a limited area in which your bum feels comfortable and numb bum kicks in quite soon.

The only other bike I was looking at was the Versys which is a fine bike, but it was too tall for me with a mm seat height I am just about 5’9″. Handling and brakes were pretty good, and the headlight is one of the best I have ever experienced. The large tank and fairing does make crosswinds a little challenging, but no more than similar bikes of similar weight. I just wish I had tried one dl60. Its my first big bike since doing my direct access and it inspires confidence in the twisties and is comfortable cruising down the motorways at 80!

SUZUKI DL V-STROM () Review, Specs & Prices | MCN
Excellent tank range, low insurance group, slow tyre wear and an easily-serviced engine make for good, real world savings. The bike also felt rock steady while at high speed on the straight sections of pavement.
It’s now fully run-in and I’d like to point out a few issues which are minor but relevant to others interest in this overall great motorcycle. The engine seemed to love the rpm range and could run there all day long, which in many cases it did. Also the Suzuki luggage could be better – the panniers are too small and the top box, while big and very good, intrudes into the pillion space. Summary of Owners’ Reviews Overall Rating 4. I bought the ABS version. The V-twin cc engine is superb, and much more useable, smooth and flexible than the by comparison clunky and coarse cc version.

European models meet Euro 3 emissions specifications. Got bored of the hornet, found the suspension too poor, and the handling a bit awkward, and the ability to travel long distances in comfort was becoming a problem as I did it more often.
