Suzuki V-Strom 1000 is 150 horses need?
Now such is the new V-Strom 1000. He does not want to compete with BMW or KTM wants to be the bike for anyone who entertain and take you comfortably and reliably wherever you want. Design of the new V-tree is in my opinion a success. Since the last generation that disappeared from sales in 2007, much has changed. The current V-tree is at first glance a lighter, simpler and leaner mainly, not lack the “beak” showing that this bike can handle the easy terrain. Interestingly, the design resembles his younger siblings V-tree 650. Everyone at first sight so they know how much they are saddled.
We had a V-Strom addition of the highest grade models, almost everything can be found in the catalog Suzuki.Of the highlights: High travel plexi , drop frames, three suitcases, fog lights, Tank, or even film on the tank that prevent scratching the paint. There are also extensions of mirrors, which in my opinion too failed, on the other hand are large and have a lot to see.

But we have already but u Suzuki used. V-twin has a pleasant sound and after snap leader right from the bottom without twitching starts.Other KVALT fall smoothly, even when the shift lever is a little longer running. I go right to the center, which he demonstrated exemplary handling bikes on any surface. There is no problem slowly creep and immediately sharply accelerate in the intersection. The good controllability does not change in suitcases and optional equipment.
The chassis works exactly as I would expect for such bikes. It is rigid enough to withstand a brisk ride, but comfortable enough for traveling around the bad roads. Copes with cobblestones as the switchbacks in the mountains. Nothing doing excellently, but everything very well. In short, as expected.
Very excellent brakes. You have up to unexpected power and would be ashamed for them did not need much sportier motorcycles, others may have come originally from the GSX-R. The front would but for the purposes descended perhaps a little less sensitivity, just think of brake pads and discs to bite into. But do not worry if I lead, started sensitive setting ABS. Unfortunately, we can not turn off. Given that the V-tree nehrne rough terrain, it is perhaps not so crucial.
