New V Strom 1000 Accessories

Hi guys

I'm awaiting my 14ADV version due sometime around March. I have the pricing for the bike, but I do not have pricing the Suzuki accessories. Namely, the new tank bag, heated grips, center stand, and the LED driving lights. The SuzukiCycles.com accessories area part of the website is not up to date and the new V Strom specific website doesn't give pricing. As well, the dealer has no info either.

Anyone have info here? Can't wait to see it all in person at the Cleveland IMS end of January!!

Phil

I can give you 2 CDN prices having purchased the 1000SE model a month ago. The grip heaters (new design hurrah!!) are $225, and the LED driving lights are ~$545 but you will need the 'accessory bar' or equivalent. Suzuki has not released bike(s) to the aftermarket suppliers yet according to my local dealer.

Thanks man. If conversion holds true and they keep the same market pricing, that's about 210 for the grips and 510 (ouch) for the lights. Luckily the Adventure model comes with that accessory bar.

So, what's the quality like for both of those??

twisted throttle..etc..

Talked to the guys from Twisted Throttle and they will have a bunch of "stuff" for the new 1000...like Trax boxes, etc.
These guys are bikers and have treated me very well over the years. Never a problem with any of their products.

The dealer advised the previous grip heaters were roundly criticized by the dealers so the new design is wrap-around heat for example. We looked carefully at the lights on the dealer portion of the website and it appears they are to meet conditions worldwide.

Yeah, Ouch! Those would have to be some deluxe grips for $210.

Oxford has their heated grips at Twisted Throttle for $60. I think I paid $80 a couple of years ago for my pair. Thinking of getting a spare set as the rubber is starting to wear on my Sport model.


I wonder if Eastern Beaver will do some of their wiring accessories for the new Vee. I have used Jim's products in the past for both my Wee and current Bandit 1250s and have found them to be real time savers. I suppose he'll have to get his hands on one to see what connectors are used.

I'm sure....

I'm sure that there will be "tons" of stuff for the new 1000 just like there is for the "old" one.
Better start saving your $$$$$$$$.

Is it my imagination or does the bash plate and crash bars on the models look like SW Motec?

That's very possible. SW-Motech has been the manufacturer of some Suzuki branded accessories for years.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html

You are correct. SW-MOTECH has been working with Suzuki and most of the othe motorcycle manufacturers for years. They make things like luggage, carriers, crashbars, skidplates and centerstands to OEM standards. Often times they then re-engineer them to an improved standard and sell under their own (SW-MOTECH) name.
