New DL1000 2013-2014

In the Netherlands and the rest of Europe, we canít buy since 2009 no longer a new DL1000 . Has to do with the environmental requirements.
The K9 was the last. So you understand that we are looking forward to the new successor of the DL1000.
There are more and more rumors going around, but there are still no official photos available. My contact at Suzuki Netherlands expects the new DL (L4) in autumn 2013.

Example of the new DL 1000 L4


We wait and see.

If you hear something sooner, please let me know.

Thanx4now,

Rhino

I like what I can see so far except for the signal lense cover. Should be clear.

i'll give 5-1 odds it's the same bike as earlier models with some cosmetic changes. it will arrive with the same antiquated FI system and the same ridiculous fuel maps to make it EPA friendly. the clutch problem will remain. the stator will still be underpowered and prone to failure. and the list of crap with our beloved Vee will continue...

When they released the new 2012 Glee they already had a nice new engine available from the Gladius. Does Suzuki have a similar nice modern 1000cc V-Twin that they can simply slot into the new Vee? I can't imagine they would build a whole new engine just for a revised Vee, in which case the original problems will remain.
But just imagine...a brand new Vee with none of the clutch or fuelling issues, revised styling, completely modernised...It would certainly change the Stromtrooper forum significantly I believe.

The upside down forks got my attention. I will assume it will also carry a better set of calipers to compliment the new fork legs.

Gosh. Same old footpegs. Why doesn't Suzuki ever change anything? Blah blah blah pessimistic crapfest about the R&D budget of a struggling Japanese manufacturer.

Get over it.

Interesting

It's kind of strange, how the mountains pay us no attention at ll. You laugh or cry and the wind just keeps on blowing.

Get over it.
so, lemme get this straight: as fans of this tired old design, we, the loyal customers of the poor struggling japanese manufacturer, are supposed to dribble and goo-goo gah-gah at a plastics redesign after ten years? are we supposed to run out and drop 12k on a "new" vstrom with the same shitty problems, that somehow the aftermarket fixed without too much ado and expense? are we prohibited, in your mind, from voicing our opinions as owners and users of the same machine, who have faithfully stuck with a flawed design and worked with the aftermarket to make the bike closer to what suzuki could have easily made it?

methinks the real pessimist here is you, sir.

as for their limited R&D budget, the cheap-ass designers could have easily looked at what the aftermarket has done and simply adopted some of the changes, e.g., realshelby's clutch basket fix, ECU remaps done by many many shops and individuals, mosfet regulator standard, 4 pot pistons, aluminum bars with adjustable mounts, slightly rounded mirrors that get rid of 20-40% of the wind buffet problem, any windshield design but their own to get rid of almost all the rest of the wind issue, and the list goes on and on. yes, these things cost money, but how much? a few hundred bucks?

I think he was talking to himself the second half of his post.
