First impressions: New old stock 2016 V-Strom ABS Adventure
Nimble, light, tracks amazingly well, goes where I point it, corners easy, shifts supper, has plenty of torque.
The more I ride this bike the more Iím amazed at has how responsive it is.
Iíve been riding sport-cruisers the last few years, 2012 BMW R1200RT and then a 2018 K1600GTL.
The change is amazing, love it! Now know why I see these duel sport bikes all over the place here is Alaska.
Like the fact I can back up without putting it in reverse.
Factory bags are too small for anything other than a few things.
Have had 2 days and already have a Go Cruise, Oxford Heated grips and VStream 18.75 Windscreen on the way. Amazon prime baby!!
All in All, a fun bike to ride, almost feels like its the big brother to my e-bike. Donít think Iíll get as much saddle time on the Strom as the Bulls Monster, my E-Bike but should be close at least until the snow flies.
