Looks like someone at Suzuki is in bed with Ducati
And people have the balls to call a versys ugly? wtf...that is horendous looking.
Don't see how it's particularily any worse, or better, than the current crop of adventure themed bikes.....
I was thinking the same thing. Just another run of the mill adventure bike. They are getting hard to distinguish from one another any more.
I'd say part of the strange looks is Suzuki use of red on this show bike.
It does nothing for it. All black or with white fenders would look much better.
The only way to fix the "looks" of this concept bike is to trow it under a 50 tonne press, give the Suzuki designers a clean sheet of paper so they can start over again and make it look similar to the "old" DL1000.
I bet you just love your '72 Dodge Dart too, eh?
Or - not.
This "new" Strom has nothing (beside the engine block) to do with the "old" Strom.
It would make more sense if it was called DR BIG II or something like that. They took the most recognised part of the Strom,the front fairing, and instead put on an ugly Roadrunner like beak. Why?
The best description of the new Strom came from my wife.
The first thing she said when I showed her a picture of it was:"O my God,what is that?!...it looks like a Chinese GS..."
Sent from my GT-S5570I
Chinese/Japanese GS' spend much less time at the shop.
I'll take one :
I like the Ape Caponord better. But it's probably $4k more too.
I don't know. It doesn't look that close...
I like it better than my old 03 Strom.
Ironic post is ironic.
Please do not offend DR Big by suggesting this new concept has anything remotely related to old great machine.
Despite I sold mine I still missing it. And it looked like one solid piece of machine unlike this concept. And beak is not even remotely resembling Big.
Why don't you guys get out and ride instead of writing whiny posts about the look of the new Strom? Start living in the real world - things CHANGE.
If you don't like the looks of the new one there is an easy solution, don't buy it when it's released! Or, keep your old one, take care of it and continue to ride it for many years!
As a V-Strom owner, **I** personally LIKE the looks of the new bike. I will continue to ride my 07 for as long as it still excites me.
And then, I will lost likely but the new one.
You guys just whine far too much.
Don't insult Ducati like that...
Thats a Howard the Duck...aka: GS/BMW
All day long...
You probably have a Pontiac Aztek, don't you?
Yes, if I'm lucky enough to be buying a new bike in the next few years it definitely won't be the new Strom.
The new Aprilia Caponord looks quite nice.
