Full equip version seems very nice (seems a new skid cover with very good design). Downside, lost oil cooler (less $$$, less kg-lb, but no better cooling).

New V-Strom?

The tank holds 20 litre, or 5.2+ U.S. gallons... I LOVE the look :-)

Maybe they did some internal work with the engine - cams, valves, compression ratio, to provide a boost?

Updated suspension hopefully.

Sounds like they may have changed sixth gear to an over drive...


NOW, where's the new 1K

Pathetic

So much for holding off for an updated model. Really disappointed!

At that angler it looks tidier up front than the previous, but why mess too much with what works? Love it it orbe dissappointed lots of WeeStroms have flown out the doors of showrroms and ridden for many thousands of miles. So you can improve on it, every drz or other thumper I know gets a bigger tank or lowere link or this or that... seems to suit alot of people. Although no usd forks is a silly miss.

20 Liters = 4.4 Imperial Gallons....or..........5.28 American gallons. Smaller yes, but not by much.
