It has all the bells, and all the whistles, its Gore-Tex and it even has some features you didn't even know you needed, but does this justify the almost $1,000 price?Read more
The Second Generation
IIf you compare the Suzuki V-Strom to the other 1000+ cc liter bikes available, it seems to fall short. But our experience has been that so many times a spec sheet doesn't tell the whole story. We've ridden bikes that spec out at the top of the heap, but were dreary to ride, and other bikes that don't spec out so well can be better than anyone ever imagined.
The 2014, second generation, DL1000 V-Strom by suzuki represents a lot of big changes. All new suspension, a totally reworked motor (they say only four parts work from the old motor), big brakes new styling and even some electronic rider aids. We ware curious how this bike stacked up in the real-world. Watch to see what we learned.
Special thanks to Honda/Suzuki of Salt Lake for making this review possible.
Tire Mileage Chart
Starting in the summer of 2009 we began listing and detailing just the mileage we've gotten from various tires. The goal was to allow you to see what mileage we've gotten and allow you to correlate that information with your own experiences to help you determine what tire is going to best meet your needs. Please check back often as we will continually be adding more information to this page. More »
