It's the same old bike with three common aftermarket add-ons. They are good add-ons though.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general...nicknames.html

The magazine is from South Afrcia, thus the .co.za domain. Just FYI.

If you ask me, it's more rewarding adding the farkles myself.

Huh

I could have sworn they were talking like they were from NZ.

Suzuki's dual-purpose DL650 V-Strom has always been one of the most civilised light tourers on the market, but hardly a serious off-roader... until now, that is.

Suzuki has launched the DL650X with an alloy bash plate, steel engine protection bars and a black sports screen for more adventurous V-Strom riders
'The new V-Strom 650X has additional specification that adds to its practicality'.

Suzuki GB marketing director Nick Palmer said: "The new V-Strom 650X gives our customers something a little different.

"It has additional specification that adds to its practicality and comes in two special colours candy-apple red and matt black."

No decision has yet been made as to when the DL650X will be available in South Africa.

Has it gotten any easier for us to pick up one of those Euro-only wind screens yet?

DL650X rental in UK

I rented a DL650X in the UK and put about 1200 miles on it in a week. The Sport Screen is nice and quiet and totally buffet free at any speed.
