2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Road Test | Lots to Love

Posted by On January 02, 2015


2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Road Test

As 2014 drew to a close, I grabbed the 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS from the Ultimate MotorCycing garage for a back-roads ride to Monterey with the gang. I haven’t been on this bike in three months, and I am quickly reminded why I recently chose it as 2014 ADV Bike of the Year.

If you’ve followed some of our past antics, the back roads from Thousand Oaks, Calif., to Monterey, Calif., is one of our gang’s favorite ways to blow the carbon out. One day up, stay overnight on Cannery Row, and back the next day.

During our latest trip, we covered about 900 miles and our route offered some of the most beautiful scenery and challenging roads anywhere. Whether you like scraping pegs on fast second-gear turns or getting deep into triple digits, there are roads out here to suit. Whatever you ride, after a jaunt like this, you will be well acquainted with every nuance of your machine…..


This Suzuki isn’t missing any key elements necessary for commuting, touring or running around town. Whether it’s the price that motivates buyers or the knowledge that it is all one needs to be their perfect motorcycles, the V-Strom is a winner.
