THE ANCESTOR The Suzuki V-Strom was inspired by Suzuki’s first big adventure bike, the 1988 DR750S.
The future V-Strom 1000 has been released in a concept form, offering a sneak peek into the future of the Suzuki adventure machine.
“Suzuki Motorcycles changed the adventure touring category forever when it developed the V-Strom 650 and introduced to the world an incredibly versatile, comfortable and fun-to-ride motorcycle,” said Perry Morison, General Manager, Suzuki Motorcycles. “Our two V-Stroms, the 650 and 1000, are amongst Australia’s best-selling adventure tourers and we are very excited about the release of a concept V-Strom 1000 as it shows the future direction of this popular model and of our organisation.”
The V-twin engine has been totally redesigned for improved rideability and increased acceleration. The slim aluminium frame, adjustable windscreen, all-new luggage system and comfortable seat create a comfortable machine to spend hours in the saddle. ABS and traction control are also fitted to the new machine while the suspension has been completely revamped.
