Based on reviews it looks like Suzuki has built the new Vee to a higher spec and distanced it from the Wee. The suspension is upgraded
, they brought the weight down
, added drive modes, and maybe fixed the fueling that people have complained about. Before, about the only advantage to the Vee was power, a slightly better fork, and chrome rings around the tach and speedo, everything else was pretty much the same, plus a few negatives. I get the feeling the Vee is now truly a better bike than the Wee.
If possible, test rides are always the best thing. I test rode the Tenere and found it heavy and cumbersome, I was disappointed since it fit me perfectly in the showroom. I've ridden the older Tigers, the 1050 and 955, and really liked them a lot.
