Has somebody actually had prolems like this with an SW Motech plate?

I΄ve got one on my -12 Wee, and its attachments look almost identical – I ride paved stuff or easy unpaved these days, so have no personal experience as to how it would survive, if bottomed out... I did notice, that on my -07 Wee the plate, can΄t remember which one it is, attaches to the crashbars on the front.

Had motech on my k4 for years. It bends but does not break and protected well. Remove, beat it with sledgehammer back in shape, reattach and go.

Yep . . . SW-Motech accessories are first class. Very well engineered and built.

Thumb Google Videos

The following is about the Traction control and instrument cluster:

This next one talks about some other stuff that is way cool:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-sRexTpIho

P.S. These came out today, but sometimes its the same stuff from a differnt poster. So appoligies if these are old videos.

I think if a rider was looking for a S10, but did not want to be as off road, this 1000 would get the damn job done.
It already looks more off road than the 2012+ 650 V-strom.

Looks like a great bike!

Sure does. Can't wait to see one out fitted with some knobbies.

I did notice the front brake line looping over the top of the front fender. This caused some problems for the 800GS guys.

Question Are these the prices you type of?

The 2014 V-Strom 1000 is one of the most important bikes in Suzuki's line-up for the next year and after showcasing the specs and new features of the bike, interest raised dramatically. The big Strom has already started shipping to dealerships around the world and we're got "Stromy" news from Canada.

The standard version of the 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 will be $11,999 (€8,798) and it includes the fancy new suspensions and traction control. The SE version brings in panniers, hand guards, a center stand and will retail for some extra $1,000 (€733), which is very decent. There could be some more options for the off-road game, possibly an "Adventure" package, rumor has it.

vs 2012+ 650 V-Strom


Overall Length
2014 1000: 2285 mm (89.96 in) About a tie
2014 650: 2290 mm (90.2 in)

Overall Width
1000: 865 mm (34.05 in) Looks like less than an 1" on each side. More wind protection?
650: 835 mm (32.9 in)

Wheelbase:
1000: 1555 mm (61.22 in) Even though the wheel base is more from the old 1000, this is still less than the 650. I like a narrow wheel base. Seems to make the bike more nimble and help with going over stuff.
650: 1560 mm (61.4 in)

Ground Clearance:
1000: 165 mm (6.5 in) I doubt I'll miss the 10mm... I hope. I guess the lower ground c. will help with ergos and leg room.
650: 175 mm (6.9 in)

Seat Height:
TBA I wonder why this has not come out yet?
650: 835 mm 32.9"

curb weight:
228 kg (502.65 lbs) For some odd reason, this really influences me. For a whole lot more performance you have to suffer with 30.65lbs. Granted, if price was a big issue, this would cause a lot more suffering.
214 kg (472 lbs)

I'd really like to know how much better the suspension travel will be.
__
I know these bikes are not seen as competition, but it seems like the 2014 1000 would take a good amount of sales away from the 2012+ 650.

Perhaps, a similar comparison would be the F800GS taking away sales from the G650GS Sertao.

But going from a G650GS/Sertao to a R1200GSl is a big jump.

Do you'all follow me?

Seat height is the same as the '13 650.

Design?

Loved the Old Strom. Had one years ago. Like a V-Twin, 1000cc, upright seating position. The front end is butt ugly.

Why can't someone make a good looking ADV bike? Like the 1050 Tiger or Stelvio?

Maybe I need the TEX and avoid walking in front of it.

But Stelvio is an adv bike and much same looking as the Vee, only with some retro zest. To me Strom is the best looking bike, don't see anything wrong in big eyes, even if they have an asian slant. Besides you can expect a very good beam.

pipes are in the rear, you walked in the wrong side Lots of aftermarket options for that though.

New Vee is the ugliest bike ever, and in sober condition i wouldn't approach it. And if drunk i wouldn't ride it -- so it's not my bike.

Yeah.
about 1 degree.

the new one thou is Rake / trail, 25˚30' / 109mm
and the 650 is Rake/trail: 26° / 4.3in (110mm)

so the trail is basically the same but rake is very - very slightly more "sporty" on the 1000.
