I think you need to get into more details of the problems you are having?

There are no serious problems with latest version of the VStrom. The original was a great bike and the new ones are even better. Hop on and ride, ride, ride...

Don't know about the 2015's, but my '14 Vee2 did have a recall of the wiring harness. Replaced by the dealer with NO issues. Was happy Suzuki took responsibility. Almost 30,000 miles of grin smiling fun on my '14. These days, almost every motorized vehicle has some kind of recall.

I have dark grey mat 15 model.
Yes, it has ecu problem. After replacement by warranty to newer 02 ecu the backfires in air box did not lost. Sometimes it backfires eaven 3-4 times in few seconds when cold.
It has clutch noises and vibrations as the old model.
Dark grey mat finish scratches too easely.
OE windscreen must be removed before ride - that screen is disaster!

I've had no issues apart from not riding it enough! Made some adjustments to make it ride & turn better. Windscreen sucks for me, as does the seat, but they seem to vary depending on the rider.
Take one for a ride.

Wiring harness recall: done
ECU upgrade to J12: done

Perfect bike for me: city, travels, highway...
