Well, bummer, a highly modernized Wee-strom would be pretty ideal around here.

They seem to be going after the police bike market.

I wonder if Suzuki understands their target market. Do they know who buys these things?

I wonder if the new digital speedo reads 10% faster than actual.

Yes it will. Every motorcycle I have owned does this, seems standard in the USA, maybe other countries too.

Seat height increased with 1.5cm or 0.6". I wonder if the ground clearance increased by that much as well. Not by much but every bit helps.

2011: 820 mm (32.3 in)
2012: 835 mm (32.9 in)

I think they do, and it's not hard-core ADV dirt
riders generally.

NEW ! V-Strom 650 ALL 'Rounder'

Riddle me this,,,

Would you rather be on a 500 mi. road trip on a DRZ400, or a knarly dirt road on a 1250 bandit, or would you rather be on a 2012 V-strom 650 on either 'road' ?

Dig?
