Question What is a Vee and what's a wee?

I just bought a 2002 DL1000 VStrom and then found this forum (Meaning I'm very new here.)
What is the difference between a Vee and a Wee? I tried doing a search but it said my search terms were too short in length?
Thanks

The Vee is what you have, the DL1000.
The Wee is the DL650, short for the Wee Strom.

The Wee is the lighter, better handling, more flickable one with the smoother engine, that gets better MPG and cost's less. Sorry somebody had to start it!

I'd add that "wee" is a slanderous, derogatory, offensive, and disrespectful term applied by those jealous 1000 owners for the exact reasons that khager demonstrated above.

And don't get me started on the term "farkle", either. That's a-whole-nother discussion. Call them "accessories". Or anything else. Just not the f-word.

You can see that the Wee crowd has some baggage. They've got this ultra-frugal Napoleanic complex that is kinda funny, in a sad sort of way.

the wee is less money for less bike, smaller engine, smaller alternator, no handguards, damper rod fork instead of a cartridge fork, , cable clutch, instead of a hydraul;ic clutch cheaper shock


is the Vee heavier, sure, about 40 lb. is it any less agile no

the wee is a competent, budget entry level adventure bike, nothing more

Mr. Orvis,

Damn you've gotten crotchety in your old age!

P.S. I give you the cartridge fork advantage. Everything else is superfluous.

P.P.S. As the owner of a 1000 (ex-owner) and a 650, I can say without a doubt that the 650 motor is better. Oh yes, I went there.
