Hi Guys,

I wanted to get some opinions from the guys that have had the pre 2012 models on what they think of the new ones.

I've heard bits and pieces but I thought a thread on it might help the undecided.

I'm mostly interested in engine differences, transmission shift and overall thoughts on the updated 2012.

I've never owned the old V-Strom, but my girlfriend has a 2006 that I've ridden several times.

It's a comfy ride except for the seat and wind screen (too much buffeting).

Last year I took the new V-Strom for a test ride, and I find that all the small opdates sums up to a significantly better ride.

Much better seat, wind protection and suspension. A bit more power full engine and smoother gearbox. Better balance and lower COG og last but not least, I think that the 2012 looks soooo much better than the old version.

Before I rode the new V-Strom, my plan was to buy a Tiger XC this spring - now I have orderd a 2012 V-Strom instead.
