Any info on press events

Just wondering if Suzuki is having an event for the Vstrom release. That is usually when I see the first reviews on YouTube. When they bring in all the Motojournalists and let them wring them out.

There is just nothing out there with people riding them and reviewing.

It is the same bike as the 2014,15,16 as far as rideability is concerned. The only thing new is the angle friendly ABS which hopefully nobody ever needs, not sure how a review would go regarding this.

Yup pretty much the same wonderful old Wee2, just looks more like the Vee2. When it gets the suspension and brakes of the 1000, then I might consider getting one.....otherwise nope.

I think you are confusing the 650 with the 1k right Brian? I was referring to the 1k.

2017 March Spain

In March 2017 Suzuki had a press test of the new V-Strom 1000XT und V-Strom 650XT in the region around the Spanish city Tarragona.
While Suzuki-DE has a teaser video (music only) on their website, Phil West (UK) has a ride review plus video.
