Question POLL: What DL1000 colour is your favourite.

For those interested in the new DL1000 for 2014 what is your favourite colour?

I know that not all colours will be available to all regions, but that aside, vote for what colour you like the best.

Will it be -

Candy Daring Red



Pearl Glacier White



Glass Sparkle Black



Glass Desert Khaki



I am waiting to see what colours will be released in Australia as I really like the Glass Desert Khaki

I actually like all of the colors they have shown for the new 2014-DL1000 ABS. I think the Glass Sparkle Black will be my choice as the favorite. I'm a fan of black motorcycles. I'm glad that will be the color for the USA Adventure Model VEE2. I think the Black looks exceptionally nice with the Factory Bags. I have voted by putting a Deposit down on the Adventure with my excellent local Suzuki Dealer. Looking forward to riding my Fox Orange 2012-DL650 'til then.



2014 Black DL1000ABS - Adventure. Sold 2012 Fox Orange V-Strom DL650. Sold 2004 Black Suzuki V-Strom DL650. Since 2004 Owned Nothing But V-Stroms - DL or No Deal !!

I really like all the colors. The white looks like a police vehicle-cool. Black is always sharp. The khaki color is classy. The red a hint of Italian flair. No color will be a deal breaker. I will see when my dealer gets his allotments. My dealer said he gets the hype and has ordered a bunch of the V2's.

It looks like the Vee2 will be similar to the Wee2 in that if you don't like the color it will be relatively easy to swap plastics with somebody else, or just paint them. Much easier than the older Vee and Wee designs.

So who's the Photoshop expert here that is going to show what these would look like in other custom colors? No doubt we'll see a couple of guys paint them military green and there's always those who will go with Classic Suzuki Yellow (or blue).

It doesn't look like white is going to be available next year, so I will settle for red. Since I don't plan on buying until late summer or fall, I may wait and see what the color options for 2015 will be.

Red, White, Black look fantastic.

I really want Blue though. Maybe that's the 2015 model hmm?

Kawi Green would be pretty nice too.

Really there is only color on two places on this bike. The Tank and the beak. Nowhere else, so it should be easy to change colors with vinyl.

A bit rudimentary, but here is a quick mock up. When I have more time I can do them better, but it gives an idea.









Must admit, I have never been a big fan of yellow, but on this bike it looks really good, almost makes it like a big DRZ or RMZ/X
