New Wee-Strom Article in Motorcyclist Magazine

1209 7
This months Motorcyclist Magazine has a less-than-flattering article about the new 2012 Wee-Strom in it. Skimmed through it real quick before leaving for Chili's wife the wife. Will require a closer look, but it seemed that the artice was not an overly positive one.

Just sayin... (for Big B)

Please , that magazine is know to cave in to advertisers. Suzuki probably is not planning on spending much with them Zero creditability

Well, really, what is there to write about. The VStrom is getting a little long in the tooth as far as upgrades and enhancements go.

When I read it, it sounded to me like they wrote it right around the time that Suzuki was playing games with slowly releasing tidbits of information, and that seems to be mostly what they were griping about...article seemed to be more about the announcement rather than the bike itself. Given the lag time between when an article is written and when it hits the streets much much later, that seems about right.

well, they mentioned cast wheels, not spoke, and the weak front suspension, along with it not being a real contender in the adv category, compared to a tiger 800 or bmw 800, but... I don't see the wee competing with those, not at $8K. Aside from the cheap purchase price, the lower TCO/service cost etc. those are the draw to the suzuki stroms, not prestige, bragging rights, hard core ADV riding, dirt worthiness (ok I know some of you ride dirt), etc. The Wee is an inexpensive capaple comfortable cheap low maintenance dependable realiable fun bike. did I say cheap? please, understand, I like cheap. but I get what I pay for.
