Yeah I was pretty sure we went though the VVT patent here a few years ago. I thought it was further back than 2015.. perhaps a couple of years before the 2014 DL1000 was first shown.Here is the source of the rumor I'll bet; Suzuki Patents Reveal Variable Valve System for V-Strom 1000 - Motorcycle.com News
There is a dealer in the Twin Cities that has had four of them for several months. It's not that there is anything wrong with any of these bikes, it's the diminishing economy.
