We have a couple of very good shops around here who specialise in automotive models. I've never had any luck and the response I generally get is that the sales of the V-Strom are not large enough and the bikes aren't interesting enough to collectors to warrant the model makers making up a kit. If you want a Harley or a Ducati or a Moto GP bike there are no problems.

No idea about models but I do have the large poster the dealer had on the wall when I bought the Wee.

Hello moderator, can I ask you something?
I contacted Maisto in Hong Kong. This company has Suzuki permission to produce scale models of the V-Strom.
The first model of the V-Strom 1000A (1:12) will be available in September by Maisto.

f there is sufficient interest, they also want to manufacture the other models. (the 1050 is already safe).
My question!
Would you like to create a poll in the V-Strom forum ?. With the question of whether there is interest in V-Strom models.
The possibilities:
2012-2016 model 650
2004-2011 model 650
2017+ model 650
2014-2019 model 1000
2002-2009 model 1000
2020 model 1050 (XT

I'tis not certain that all colors will be made, but if there is a lot of interest the usual colors will be made.
Since I can buy these models directly from Maisto, there is no agency.
I assume that a model in 1:12 scale will cost around 12 euros. (Without shipping costs)
Would you put such a poll on the form for me? Thanks in advance.
With V-Strom regards,
Peter

I've been unsuccessful in finding models for any of the bikes I've owned: 1983 Honda Nighthawk 550, 1998 Kawasaki Concours, and 2012 Wee.

:cry:

RhinoVStrom has made contact with Maisto in Hong Kong, a diecast model manufacturer, and is looking for feedback on if there is interest on a bulk order of models of our bikes.
Color will be an issue, but he seeks people who would be interested to confirm that interest.
I have copied his post from an older thread.

What would 12 Euros be in USD, about 15-16 dollars? I would like an early red 650 without the beak.

Cheers

Hi Peter,

Good idea. I have posted a new thread with a poll here: Diecast Model V-Strom's
The poll will last for 6 weeks.

I do believe that one of the major questions asked will be colour choice. Peter, are you suggesting a custom build where individual customers may be able to specify a colour, or will there be only one colour for each model? If there is interest you will need to contact each respondent individually for their commitment.

I have now closed this thread so as to keep all of the conversation on the new thread.

I might be interested in a model I can put together and paint myself. The die-cast model takes all the work, and fun, out of it.
These are Tamaya brand, very detailed, right down to the tread pattern on the rubber tires and 1mm vinyl tubing for brake/clutch lines.

Sorry for all the confusion. Originally I opened a new thread for Peter's inquiry poll and closed the older "Looking for Diecast model of a V-Strom" thread. Somehow the two threads have been merged.
Ooops. 69 and still learning. 😊
