Smile Name Change Just Plain Vstrom In Stead Of Wee Strom

Hello everyone,

I know this is not under thread of the demise of the DL1000 and I really hate
that Suzuki is not going to build anymore of these bikes. But
If I could ask the question what will we call the Suzuki Vstrom DL650 if the
DL1000 no longer exsist. I hope that it is called just plain Vstrom not the
WEE strom that sounds to sissy to me and any bike that runs up to 125mph it is hardly a wee of a bike. What do you guys think.
I vote to drop the WEE from the DL650.
Don't worry guys Suzuki will be something different that we will all like.....

Thanks,

In a word...NO.

It's just a way to differentiate the 1k from the .65k, other than the missing muffler. :mrgreen:

Wee denotes SMALL, its smaller then a Vee so its little and you rev its brains out to keep up. Don't know who put the wee on the 650 but somebody should buy him a beer.

Ride more & worry less about what it's called. I'm secure enough in my masculinity to have it called a Wee :mrgreen: BTW top speed on the Wee without a sprocket change is 114.5mph and the speedo is notoriously optimistic

You can have my "Wee" when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.
