I ran that same front fender for a while a couple of years ago.

i like it

that looks pretty sweet to me, fancied up stripped down wee...

a side question about the new in the background, but is that a factory skid plate on it protecting the engine, radiator, and oil cooler?? if it is i like the way it looks.

All it needs is some bar-end mirrors. I also found the tire choices ironic.

@bassbromnco_74, the lower cowl on the 2012 V-Strom is a factory accessory.

Maybe its for urban off roading. You know, going up long flights of stairs and through back yards, eluding police, that sort of thing. Makes sense.

I think it looks nice as well. It would be nice if manufacturers would offer stripped down versions of their bikes. I know Suzuki isn't planning on putting that one into production, but it's always nice to have more choice, like sub models of different bikes. But then again who's to say they won't just make the stripped version the base model and then start charging you for "extras".

Looks as if Black Lab has been hanging out with the Suzuki engineers to me.

I like it I think.

I like it and the spoke wheels should be standard on the new Strom IMHO.

That bike is a BILF. Bike I'd like to FLOG.

The new strom was a nice step up, but this is one knocks it out of the park. I'm trying to figure out the differences.

  • spoked wheels
  • skid plate
  • different brakes
  • paint job
  • something covering the side grill
  • tiny windshield
  • luggage (Where can I get the luggage)
  • different knuckle guards
  • smaller front wheel ?
  • Better marketing campaign :)
