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. Due to excellent performance in Suzuki motorcycle reviews and road tests, V-Stroms – along with the DL650 variant introduced in 2004 – have proven to be very popular among touring riders.
