All of the bikes in this comparison offer the same touring features and similar components, but they differ in terms of engine size (and in one case, configuration), air vs. liquid cooling, ergonomics, wind protection, handling and styling.

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 »

The Suzuki Burgman (left), BMW C 650 GT (center) and Honda Silver Wing (right) all have liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder engines, anti-lock brakes and fuel injection.

Year/Model: 1991 Suzuki GSX1100G; Owner: Steve Nelson, Cypress, California. (Photos by Steve Nelson) It was big at 1,100cc, good for 130-plus mph, and comfortable.

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.

Suzuki was the last of the Big Four to get into the four-stroke game. Seeing the EPA’s handwriting on the engineering... Read more »
