2010 V-strom models

I didn't search for this because 2010 is too short, but what's the deal with new model V-Stroms? Catch me up on the news, please.

Suzuki is making 2010 models but not sending most to the USA, including both Stroms, because of present overstocks.

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

Yeah I just went to the local dealer. Totaled my 06 650 about two years ago, and my buddies and I are talking about going to Alaska on Stroms in two years so I'm looking at them now. Dealer had one DL1000 and no 650's and told me about no 2010 issue. He said they may not even do 2011's either. He said Suzuki is crazy cause he sales 125 Suzuki's a year and could have sold 5 or 6 DL650s already this year. So if you want a new 650 you need to find a dealer that still has an 09 in stock. Sucks cause Suzuki has the 1.99% financing deal now too through the end of the month on the Stroms. You can get 09 Versys right now new for $5k on ebay but I loved my Strom and don't think the Versys would be as good for an Alaska trip.

Just to let you know the only 09 wee's in texas are the used ones, my dealer did a check for me and came up empty handed. I had him check so I would know if I could sell mine.

There is a new 09 650 in Silsbee Tx or at least there was a week or so ago. There were a few still new in the Houston area too.

I've heard about the overstock issue as well. I am confused as we can't seem to find any new '09 models around our area. Where are all these "overstock models" they speak of??

My brother-in-law is looking and we heard about one an hour ride from here but the dealer said it was still in it's crate and wanted $600 more than MSRP. If there was a true overstock you would think there would be deals trying to get rid of 2009 models? Maybe the dealer was asking for $600 more for assembly?? Who knows, but we will still keep looking. Probably wind up getting a used one.

Best case scenario is that this could drive up the value of used Strom's if you need to sell one.

The overstock refers to the general availability of full size Suzuki street bikes. V-Stroms are a tiny part of Suzuki's manufacture. It would be nice if they added the V-Stroms to the 2010 models in addition to the RM-Z450, RM-Z250, GZ250 and RMX450Z but Suzuki is only focusing on the big picture.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
