Greg Drevenstedt
January 30, 2014

When Suzuki introduced the V-Strom DL1000 for 2002, the adventure touring landscape was much more barren than it is today. BMW’s big GS had a cult following, but liter-class dual-sports hadn’t yet caught on here in the U.S. With a retuned version of the 996cc, 90-degree V-twin from the TL1000S sportbike,... Read more »

2013 Suzuki SFV650 Action

Bill Stermer
November 6, 2013

Sporty steering, compact seating, good brakes and a willing motor make this name dropper a delight on a winding road. When it was introduced for 2009, the Suzuki Gladius was a sharp little handler powered by a 645cc, 90-degree V-twin engine. It was named for a sword said to have been used by the gladiators... Read more »

Suzuki Motorcycle Standouts

Suzuki motorcycle reviews Suzuki introduced the first GSX-R750 sportbike in 1985, and it was one of the first motorcycles to offer the power, performance and lightweight of a racing motorcycle to consumers. In 2002, Suzuki introduced the DL1000 V-Strom, an adventure touring motorcycle that combined power, comfort, ruggedness and load capacity into a go-anywhere package.
