I just bought a 2002 DL1000 VStrom and then found this forum (Meaning I'm very new here.)
What is the difference between a Vee and a Wee? I tried doing a search but it said my search terms were too short in length?
Thanks

The Vee is what you have, the DL1000.
The Wee is the DL650, short for the Wee Strom.

The Wee is the lighter, better handling, more flickable one with the smoother engine, that gets better MPG and cost's less. Sorry somebody had to start it!

I'd add that "wee" is a slanderous, derogatory, offensive, and disrespectful term applied by those jealous 1000 owners for the exact reasons that khager demonstrated above.;)

And don't get me started on the term "farkle", either. That's a-whole-nother discussion. Call them "accessories". Or anything else. Just not the f-word.

The Wee may be a bit smaller engine wise but has the Heart of a Champion. Wee Hee Hee Hee.

You can see that the Wee crowd has some baggage. They've got this ultra-frugal Napoleanic complex that is kinda funny, in a sad sort of way.

the wee is less money for less bike, smaller engine, smaller alternator, no handguards, damper rod fork instead of a cartridge fork, , cable clutch, instead of a hydraul;ic clutch cheaper shock


is the Vee heavier, sure, about 40 lb. is it any less agile no

the wee is a competent, budget entry level adventure bike, nothing more

I have both in my garage ... I am fortunate to have a few bikes and each has there own purpose. If i had only ONE bike i would choose the Wee. However ... I don't have to :rolleyes: so I choose the Torque Monster Vee and it R O C K S :var_1:

Mr. Orvis,

Damn you've gotten crotchety in your old age! :)

P.S. I give you the cartridge fork advantage. Everything else is superfluous.

P.P.S. As the owner of a 1000 (ex-owner) and a 650, I can say without a doubt that the 650 motor is better. Oh yes, I went there.

V's and Wee's

I'm almost as new to this site as you. A V is the 1000,or I suppose any V-twin engine??. The Wee-Stom is the 650. Pentonman. :cool:

Thanks for explaining that to me although the Wee owners do seem a little defensive. I switched to my Vee from a Kawasaki KLR650 which I thought handled curvy roads well. After just a few days with my Vee, I can't get over how much better this thing handles. I can't imagine how much better the Wee could handle.
I probably need the bigger engine since I'm 6'1" and almost 300 pounds (I know, I know. I need to lose some weight, but there is a little muscle in there too.)
Thanks for explaining the different terminologies to me.

It is supposed to be good natured ribbing back and forth but some take it too seriously.

Truth is both bikes are great!

Poor little Wee...

The poor little Wees look like a lot of survivors from war-torn countries.

Sad little amputees. (sniff)

I feel so sorry for them. Some of the guys make up a prosthetic tailpipe for them so they won't look so pitiful.

The Vee, on the other hand, is a fully functional bike with all it's God-given parts intact. We thank our higher powers daily in gratitude for being blessed with ownership of such a fine, complete motorcycle.

p.s. Don't listen to the Wee owners. They hear voices in their heads.:p

I have to admit that I'm getting a lot more of a kick out of these responses than I expected when I posted what I thought was a simple question. This is funny.
