Is it a bird, or a plane?! No, its a freaking penguin...

I'm all for riding some kind of a beast, I just dont think a penguin falls in that category...

The looks seem fine. What I want to know is the quality of the fork and shock. Everything else looks like a winner, except passenger foot rest mounts. They stick out too much.

I'm.

Liking it. It certainly looks more dirt worthy. Only other dirt worthy big V Twin is the KTM. No. Not a Uly thank you. Its gotta have at least 100hp to excite me. Looking foreward to a test.

The restyled Wee was done in a very feminine manner and I can only guess that Suzuki wanted to appeal to ladies with it but the styling of this 1000 is hard to understand. It would be interesting to hear from Suzuki why they styled it the way they did. The front end with that headlight and duck beak is just silly looking. I know the Strom series have always been budget bikes and not built to be at the top of the big dual sport class in anything other than price, but why make it this ugly?

The freaking bike won't be out for another year.

NO machine is perfect. EVERY machine needs SOME kind of modification to personalize it for YOUR body and needs.

I own a V-strom, is she perfect? No. But you know what? I have modified the bike for MY needs and now she is SPECTACULAR!!!

As far as the whole "ugly" business, darn near every time I stop for gas, or stop for a bite, average people who don't ride approach me and tell me, "Cool bike!".

Why do people have to always fill these boards with such non-stop negativity?

I bet you all complain that the BMW K1600GT gets "lousy" fuel economy.

Come on.
Exactly, main reason people get turned off with the maturity level here, sad most guys here are well into their 40's+ & act like elementary school yard tough guys

The bike looks great coming from a 800XC owner btw

Calm down, geez it's the internet......

At least we're talking about the bikes - it would be worse for Suzuki if they released a new model and nobody said a thing......

As an ex DL1000 owner I wouldn't kick it out of the garage.

After seeing Honda's underwhelming announcement, I'm just happy that there is at least one manufacturer making bikes with more than just "manageable" power! Thanks Zuk!!!
