Heard that Suzuki has dropped the 1000 for 2020. Still offering the 650 though.
Same with 2017.Example: 2013 Vstrom 1000. There isn't one
650 isn't selling very well either, a dealer a couple hours away from me bought over 50 2018 650X and sold them for like $3,000 off. I know a few people that got in on the deal.it could be, sales of 1000 is obviously not satisfactory comparing to 650,
besides they are so similar nobody will notice...
I've seen the rumors online of the "DR Big" project (that's what I've seen it called), which is supposedly a liter size ADV bike. If they're accurate, then it would make sense to drop the DL1000 (especially if its sales numbers are underwhelming) to devote those resources to another project. I can't see a company like Suzuki producing two liter sized ADV bikes.
no after owning 2 of each I am pretty confident. I've done more then just test ride a 1000 and claim it to have the best engine you've ever ridden only to turn around and say nobody could tell the difference between a 650 and 1000....LOL you wish.
that's the problem that not really, this bike has better low down torque then new AT, versys 1k, f800GS, R1200GS, tiger 800xc, MT-09 tracer and more. I wish v-strom 650xt had this torque because I'd bought it already.
