Individual Suzuki importers/distributors are able to make whatever deals with the factory they can negotiate and many countries have versions and even models that may not be available elsewhere.

Some importers might even choose to make up an after market "pack" to go with a base model for assembly by the dealer. They must be motivated by what they think they can sell. I have even seen individual dealers add accessories to their floor stock.

Great looking bike, and an interesting mix of parts. Those are Touratech crashbars, have no idea who makes the skid plate.

desert pic& S2 parts

You can make any Wee or Vee look the desert part with 12 dollars of Rust-o-leum or Krylon paint.
I even spent 12 bucks to get Horned Toad decals to finish off the look.
NOTACOP do you have pictures of your Desert look? :nerd:

JRB_NW check the PDF link (5.6MB) in the 2nd post and you'll find all the S2 Concept Desert Express parts. :wink2:

It's actually a German mob that's behind the whole thing.
Buy whole kitted bikes, full or partial bling-kits, individual parts, wire wheel kits etc etc

SAME NAME?

Hmm, I'm surprised Stefan is using the name 'Desert Express'.
It is correct that HESSLER RALLYE TEAM is German but the 2014 Desert Express kit was made by the French company S2-Concept. https://apairofstroms.wordpress.com/2015/01/21/s2-concept-accessoires-suzuki-dl1000-desert-express/
According to Stefan's post on the German V-Strom forum he is introducing his new Desert kit but his 3 color schemes are not really getting a positive response.
While his kit includes wheels and suspension, the French kit only 'accessories'.

Just for looks I still prefer the 2014 :smile2:

Wow, those blue colored bits absolutely scream Desert.
Somehow adding lightness and a larger fuel tank would make it more off highway worthy.
But where does one start to make the bike lighter?
If the bike is to be both a highway capable and then dirt friendly compromises have to be made.
On which side do you cheat to best benefit?
I would not be buying expensive lights to ride pell mell in the dark. Ride while the sun is up and you don't need them.
Headlight guard ditto, don't follow your buddy too closely and they won't be throwing debris back at you from the knobbies.
I've sure those decals will help in the soft sand too! Youza!
