I've got an 08 V-Strom 650 which I think is the best overall bike I've ever owned. But 10 years is a long time to ride just one bike. So I went to a Suzuki Demo Day and rode the 2018 V-Strom 1000. Really nice bike. I am going to buy one. My preference is the Glacier white ABS model with cast wheels. Only question: when will Suzuki reveal the 2019s? Isn't is usually in the summer? I would like to see what color they are.
