2014 V-Strom 1000 - October 8, 2012, 08:01 AM

Intermot: Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Concept - Motorcycle news: New bikes - Visordown

They're still calling it a "concept" but it sounds like it's going to be a reality in the next year or so.

I'm on the fence on the styling, especially that damned beak that everyone seems to love. If it were coming sooner I might consider it but being a year off I think the call of the Super Tenere is going to be too great for me to resist.

Agreed. Looks like a platypus from the front.

I don't mind it, except it has veered too much into a street-bike. I want my dual sport to be able to tackle some off road, this bike can't with that setups of tires and suspension.

Is there someone who actually likes the beaks? I never have understood why you'd stick a beak on a bike.

There's no accounting for taste, man.

After all, some folks stick fucking mohawks on their helmets.

This thread delivers!

Seriously though it doesn't look that bad. I'm just happy zuki is trying to do something about their current lineup.

Suzuki is still relevant? Wait, nevermind, haven't been since they stopped racing. Moving on.
