New DL1000 is the V2

OK, seriously. I nominate the name V2 for the new 2014 and later stroms.

Maybe it's not completely politically correct, but it fits and has a really nice ring to it.

I second the nomination....kinda. I prefer to write it Vee2 which maintains its Vee roots and corresponds better with Wee2 which is what I prefer to call the new 650.

BTW, is there really such a thing as a 2014 DL1000? Suzuki now calls it the V-Strom 1000 ABS.

Vee2 is consistant with Vee but I am sure V2 would be well understood. (Funny I just posted as much in the "Nickname" thread.)

Yeah, I could easily go with Vee2 no problem.

If the URL for its web page is any indication, the model number is DL1000A.

Yup all the name variations that I like, throw in V-II or VEE-II as well.

Roman numerals are of Satan.

Repent sinner.

We must use proper Arabic numerals, that way you could say, "Holy Vee-2 Batman!" and not be cast into the darkest pits of hell for your sacrilege.

So as not to be confused with the mighty and powerful DL1000B or the equally awesome DL1000C.

The DL1000D model is being tested at the Skunkworks but I can't really tell you any more than that.



They have peyote cactus growing around the Skunkworks. Where do you think they get all those crazy ideas?

'Merkin vs. Canadian DL1000 (2014)

In Canada, it will be known as the DL1000EH?

In the U.S. it will be know as the DL1000HUH?
