Hello everyone,

I know this is not under thread of the demise of the DL1000 and I really hate
that Suzuki is not going to build anymore of these bikes. But
If I could ask the question what will we call the Suzuki Vstrom DL650 if the
DL1000 no longer exsist. I hope that it is called just plain Vstrom not the
WEE strom that sounds to sissy to me and any bike that runs up to 125mph it is hardly a wee of a bike. What do you guys think.
I vote to drop the WEE from the DL650.
Don't worry guys Suzuki will be something different that we will all like.....

Thanks,

Wee denotes SMALL, its smaller then a Vee so its little and you rev its brains out to keep up. Don't know who put the wee on the 650 but somebody should buy him a beer.:p :p

Ride more & worry less about what it's called. I'm secure enough in my masculinity to have it called a Wee :mrgreen: BTW top speed on the Wee without a sprocket change is 114.5mph and the speedo is notoriously optimistic

Me too. I can't refer to my bike in a cute way without grimacing. It's a Suzuki DL 650 V-Strom. You want cute go get a kitten. Let's call the DL 1000 the Pre-Strom now that it's extinct.

Its been a good run but like every motor the TL1000 has had its time and now a replacment is needed...With all of these 1100-1200 twins out now Im hoping for a SV1200 and a DL1200 :mrgreen:

I don't really care if they call the DL650 a " wee "....

I'll worry more if a woman calls me a "wee" and it's not a reference to the bike..:???:

The 1000 is "extinct"? I know that it is a good possibility....but I'll betcha it will be reborn again.:mrgreen: By the way........on the slab the 1000's rocked the house in Tenn, NC and Georgia. Not sure if any VSTROMS went offroading, but we sure tore up the pavement.

The 650 will always be the weestrom IMHO...but that name means nothing to what kind of bike it truly is.;)


There was a VERY good showing of 1000's at the rally....kinda made me shed a tear.

I agree Suzuki will be working on maybe a more aggressive big street/trail
like the KTM's... But I still say the name Wee Strom name should be stricken from all the walls and all the halls... Too Sissy.... for such a great bike.

I prefer LightStrom

I call my 650 a LightStrom, because of its light weight, but if they quit making the DL1000 I guess we won't need a nickname any more.
