take a look...
Wow. A credible rumor.
According to HFL the new V-Strom will be unveiled on June 11.
Hopefully 700-800cc's ?????? (for better two-up riding, and/or when fully loaded......sure gas milage will suffer some tho?)
It'll go bigger because everyone else is doing it.
Of course, people are going bigger too, so it balances out, except for the obvious MPG hit.
1250cc, shaft, ABS, EBS, side radiator, 8 gallon tank...
Update of the current V-Strom. Just like SV650 to Gladius.
I hope it's not gonna have 17" front...
I hope it's gonna have spoke wheels...
YAMAHA goes full bore adventure TOURER. ANd makes a vey capable bike for on off road. And it gets bagged.
The POMS to reviews on sealed roads between pubs and don't touch dirt at all...
and then this
Well sorry but that is exactly what the Europeans seem to want. A sports tourer with adventure pretensions.
It'll probably be a good bike and after 8 years they will finally admit it.
I hope they make it nice and FUGLY. No fun otherwise
How do they think the Gladius is dreadful? The black one is great. Much improved on the SV650 naked it replaced. Suzuki marketing is to blame for the metrosexual advertising but it is still a great bike.
Does that mean we are going to get a Metro sexual Strom?
I just can't wait for the Fashion Adventure accessories
Gladys engine, all new styling.
Tbh, even though I'm not a DL fan, I'm kinda looking forward to it
The more the merrier and all that.
Can't Suzuki just source and rebadge the Versys?
And "metrosexual" is what, 10 years old now? Didn't "hipster" replace it?
Engine gets praise from all quarters.
Styling is like a dolphin-shaped dildo.
Engines get power bumps with improved mileage. Improved efficiencies, lower weight, etc.
Can you give me some examples?
Seems like every case I've seen says "love the extra HP, hate the poor MPG" or "love the bigger engine, hate the heat it generates".
