Vstrom DL650's can jump!



Video of a 2012+ DL650 being put through test by super7moto Small jumps and rough surface show that the 650 is more than capable of handling Adventure riding.

Got a time in the video where this happens? Hard to look through a 9 minute video of guys I can't understand.

awww you poor thing... drag the mouse cursor over the long red bar, it should preview the frames which will then show you when the strom is in the air.

Synopsis: The perfect package, the magic recipe, nobody needs anything more than this, wonderful motor, anyone can ride it and feel comfortable, low maintenance, low fuel consumption, both of the guys loved it more than they thought they would.

So pretty much everything we already know!

My 04 wee gets regularly aired out about as much as shown on the video. You do have to be selective as the skid plate will drag. I hope to fix that in the near future with heavier front and rear springs.

I'll be impressed when someone does a back flip on one.
