Well, it might look less ugly in a different color scheme - all black maybe.

But if it is more refined than the old DL1000 and still more affordable than the competition, I expect it will sell as well as the . . .









old DL1000.

Good luck Suzuki. At least they'll probably be dirt cheap on the used market like their predecessor.

Don't panic people. The accountants haven't done the analysis yet.

Expect it to have as many 650 parts as they can get on it.

OR

Expect a new 650 in 2014 that looks like this.
Looking forward to the real thing in a few years.

Pity they didn't go for the New ultra light weight construction that YAMAHA did.

Obviously all those unfair porky comments hit a nerve.



The S10 is safe for a bit longer.

Still good to remember it is only a concept right now. They don´t always end up in production, and styling, etc. can and often do change along the way.

Suzuki unveiled a new V-Strom 1000 'concept' bike at the Intermot show yesterday



But unlike many concept bikes. Suzuki have said it will be part of their 2014 line up

That's the 2014 V Strom 1000.

This is the 2013 V-Strom thread...

I sold my DR Big 2 months ago.
This new Vstrom on photos at least (I will see it in real on Saturday) does not look like anything at all resembling DR Big. Not a smallest thing.
It looks like headlight mask of KTM 690 SMR with rear from ....I do not know...FJR?
To be honest I think it is really ugly, but it is just IMO

Here is new Strom



Here is 690 SMR



And here is DR Big

Well, I think that DR Big never won any beauty contests either...so maybe that's the connection

A concept.. dear lord, get rid of that fugly multistrada beak! Replace it with another beak if you now must have a beak, but just not that one...

Oh, and make the passenger footpegs and muffler holder bolt-on! While the subframe is replaceable - i.e. not like Triumph - it's still silly to not be able to change a relatively simple, low-priced item that can work as a sacrifice to protect more expensive parts!

That's not good for the weight obsessed OR probably the manufacturing costs and not that many people care until.
a) they have an accident
b) the insurance premium skyrockets.

Which don't usually happen on a ride around the block before a sale. Usually.

Yeah. Sometimes it's a bitch to be foresightful...

I guess I'm a minority, but I like it. I hope that Suzuki does go into production with it and I also hope that it proves to be a huge success. Further reenforcing the adventure bike market share.
