2018 Suzuki V-Strom 1000
Fantastic Value Adventure BikeBy (I am an Enthusiast) on Sep 14, 2018
Having test ridden most of the current Adventure bikes on sale I nearly didn't bother with the Suzuki. UK press did not really give it a good write up as it only had 100hp.
Now having had a long test ride, I was so impressed that I have bought one.
It was instantly comfortable and felt ... well balanced and light weight. The brakes are very powerful and the handling feels again light but very stable. It normally takes a while to get used to a bikes handling characteristics but I found that I was relaxed and carving curves within minutes.
Quality of all the components looks good and well thought out. Headlight has a good strong beam and other manufacturers could learn from this set up.
