The first explorers up to 2013 have had allot of issues, the new 1000 has barely had a hiccup. Triumph is great to deal with I understand, and it sounds like the latest 1200 explorers are pretty solid.

I think darren42 was referring to the 2104 vstrom typo. Being a little facetious methinks.

Roger that, I meant the 1200 Explorers. There has been plenty of issues, so do your homework and investigating when it comes to a pre 2014 and or what recalls or repairs have been done. It is a pretty big and heavy bike, but the electronic cruise and shaft drive is awfully nice. The new Vee2 is a sweet machine, it feels much like the 650 in many ways......just allot more fun to ride. ;)

Reliability issues aside because I am biased towards Japanese motorcycles..

It's all about the motor

V-twin grunt vs Triple whine


V2 floats my boat
