New DL is dual plug on each cyl. for a cleaner burn. Otherwise it will differ little from the current set up.

does it all really matter? it's a 1000cc motor in a bike that will see dirt time.
plenty fast even if it's more low end torque designed. it will easily do 100++mph anytime you need it and beyond that you're just asking for trouble.

i'm sure it's all about keeping the weight down.
glad to see Suzuki is talking about and addressing that vrs just designing it bigger and bigger.

i'm sure the screen mfg will just address the issue with side screen coverage such as Madstad and Nat. Cycle V-stream.


Knowing Suzuki, i'm betting they are gonna get this bike close to the existing 1000. maybe a few hundred more, but not 1000s more. they are well aware of what less this bike has vrs the s10 and how it needs to be priced as such.
Suzuki redid the 650 and only charged $200 more so they know how it's done.

All my life Suzuki has been really good at the "value" equation.

I've had quite a few. Never a bad one.

yes solid & reliable bikes (if not old tech at times) with good prices

'Back in the day' I had a 1979 PE175. Was a terrific bike. Check it out...dry weight 216lbs.
Funny, I even looked like the kid in the ad poster. Long hair down past my collar.








Then a 2001 SV650S





And in 2002 a DL1000 V-Strom

Major? Issues?

From a distance, I think the V's have a reputation for being bikes without "major issues". That's been their strength, along with excellent $value.

Thought the same thing... The fairing where the signal lights are should be a few inches wider overall and the fairing from the shield should taper out to match width. Not enough top of the body wind protection IMO. The bike looks good otherwise and I'll be looking forward to trying one.

Only their looks.

And if that's the biggest issue, it says a lot.
