Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom Concept

 

 

 

 

The new V-Strom 1000 establishes itself as an adventure-tourer with a more dominant presence compared to its predecessor. More importantly, its 1000cc V-Twin engine has been completely redesigned and now includes traction control for peace of mind while street riding. .

Beyond the engine, the aluminum frame provides a basis for the bold, distinctive styling, giving it a more aggressive stance than before. The broad seat, adjustable windscreen and 10-spoke wheels further hint at the ‘Strom being more street-oriented than dirt. An all-new luggage system, designed in conjunction with the bike itself, provides plenty of storage space with easy on/off installation.

Suspension duties are now handled by an inverted fork in front and single shock in rear. Both adjustable, though it’s still unclear as to what extent. Radial-mount front calipers with ABS are sure to provide strong stopping power.
