I was talking to a dealer last week who said that there will be another Suzuki Sales Meeting in September and he expects them to announce the DL1000 there. He said it was the same way last year, 650 early 1000 later.
My dealer thought 2008 may have a redesigned DL1000. Has anyone heard confirmation? 7 years in production - sounds like time for an update. I have a 650, & might be interested in an updated 1000 w/ ABS.
Has anyone ridden the new Bandit 1250? I wonder how the ergos compare w/ the Strom. I'm not sure if it has upright seating; aftermarket windshields are available for wind protection.
I owned a 1000DL a couple of years ago and now have a Bandit 1250s ABS. The ergos on the Bandit are somewhat leaned over, although a set of barbacks from Twisted Throttle helped quite a bit. The vStrom was no slouch but the Bandit has much more engine. The torque is incredible. I've not yet done any tweaking on the suspension but plan to soon. Both are really nice bikes and great values.
I read in another forum that a German magazine had announced a redesigned V-1000. They did not have any details yet but it gives me some hope as I will be buying a new bike at the end of this year. I was already set on a v-strom but then I read that it wasn't going to be back next year. Anyone has any updates on this subject? By the way, this is my first post on this forum, I would like to say hello to everyone.
Edit: The name of the magazine is TOURENFAHRER edition 8/2007
Has any one installed this on their Vstrom 1000? Lets talk about it!
As of now, all frame sliders are not available, so I thought I might use this.
I went for a short 130 miles ride today on my 2017 650 with 20000km on it (13000 miles) and everything was fine until I got home. I turned it off and when I was going to drive into the garage I noticed that my dashboard display is not working. Everything is blank. No light on dashboard and no...
Hey all, so thought I would share how I attached a bigger 1620 Pelican case to my 2019 VStrom. It looks good, I was worried it might look obscenely big but it looks about how the bigger Givi outback looks. Cheaper, too, and most likely more durable. I chose the 1620 because I will be taking the...
Ever since the first commercially produced electric motorcycles started hitting the market, I've heard about how one of their great advantages is 'all the torque, all the time'. Which apparently results in some crazy 0-60 times.
So here's my question: Aren't electric bikes governed by the same...
