This year, when Suzuki introduced the re-vamped and updated V-Strom DL1000, eyes across the adventure motorcycle industry turned their gaze upon the industry’s newest offering and the reviews have been positive across the board.
The new, V-Strom sports a smooth-running, 90-degree, twin-cylinder 1037cc motor that is water cooled and fuel-injected. It’s sleek, good-looking and powerful. It’s a welcome addition to the adventure motorcycle line-up and it helps open the sport up to even more riders across the globe.
Working with Suzuki, Touratech equipped two V-Strom DL1000’s with accessories for Claudia and Mirko Nagler, as they prepared to embark upon a long distance trek that will take them through North and South America over 18 months.
The Nagler’s mission is called “2 travel – a motorcycle adventure on behalf of children”. They hope to help improve the quality of as many children’s lives as possible as they ride over forty thousand miles. “I think there will be many opportunity’s to help during our journey,” said Claudia.
