At the Intermot Show in Germany Suzuki introduced its new concept for the 2014 V-Strom 1000. Some of the new features are said to include: A completely redesigned engine, aluminum frame, traction control, adjustable windscreen, wider seat and 10 spoke wheels to name only a few.
Rather than follow the styling changes made in 2012 to the 650 V-Strom Suzuki radically altered the new styling on the 1000 to compete in the growing adventure touring market with the BMW R1200GS, KTM 1190 Adventure, Triumph Tiger Explorer and Ducati Multistrada.
It looks to be a lot more street oriented to me. Personally I think this thing is gorgeous and can’t wait to see one in person.
