Comparing three dual-sports: Honda XR650L, Kawasaki KLR650 and Suzuki DR650S.

A lot of riders look at these three motorcycles, scratch their heads, and wonder just what they’re meant for. Anybody who desires a good dirt bike can make a choice from a big selection, and a street rider has an even greater variety. Why get one of these machines, these compromises intended for... Read more »

2007 Suzuki Boulevard C50T Road Test

Take a walk around the Boulevard and you’ll see how this 805cc midsized cruiser can be mistaken for being at least 1,000cc.

Very interesting. I’d just gassed up the Suzuki Boulevard C50T for the first time, and when I went to reset the tripmeter it read 110.8 miles, but the odometer only read 109. This is exactly the kind of inexplicable weirdness that keeps me awake at night-like why does Hawaii have interstate highways? Fortunately,... Read more »

(This Retrospective article was published in the June 2006 issue of Rider.) This is one man’s view of how his motorcycle should look—it is a true custom. Many people talk about having customized bikes, but for the essential meaning of the word “customize” we should take a look at Webster’s... Read more »

2006 Suzuki Boulevard M109R Rider Test

I immediately had the impression that this baby could kick the sorry behind of most other stock bikes in terms of torque and power, yet out in the twisties it was also a hoot.

About a year ago I rode one of those big V-twins made by a low-volume alternative or “clone” manufacturer, a 100-incher with about 100 horsepower, torque like an earthmover and a rear tire wider than the ones on my van. At idle it would sit there going rump-rump-rump, and you could feel the pulses... Read more »

V-Strom vs. V-Strom: DL1000 vs. DL650

Guerrero Negro, a company town dedicated to processing sea salt, was founded in 1954.

Clement Salvadori

When the Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom came out in 2002, this magazine anointed it Bike of the Year—an excellent choice. Two years later the DL650 V-Strom appears, and therein lies this little comparo. Two models, the only significant difference being the displacements. Both of these engines are liquid-cooled,... Read more »

2004 Honda 599 vs 2004 Suzuki SV650 vs 2004 Yamaha FZ6 Motorcycle Comparison

Rider Contributor
February 3, 2004

When many of us started riding, there were just two kinds of motorized two-wheelers: scooters and motorcycles. Heck, even the line between street and off-road machines was pretty blurry. Things changed a little after the Japanese began selling motorcycles in this country, but it was still quite a while... Read more »

2002 Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom Road Test

Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom

May 15, 2002

by Bill Stermer, photography by Rich Cox/Slide Action There was a time was when motorcycles were just sizes and numbers. You started on a 90cc or a 125cc, then graduated to a 250cc or a 350cc. If you were really serious you wound up on a 500cc or a big 750cc! If you wanted to cruise, you added a stepped... 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. 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.
