2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Review

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. 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.
