2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000

In the modern world of sportbikes, the Suzuki GSX-R 750 is in a class of its own. The model is neither a 600cc supersport or 1000cc literbike; it is a midweight that proves to be one of the most popular sportbikes for real-world riding.

Suzuki remembered this when designing the 2014 Suzuki V-Strom, a bike that remained relatively unchanged since its introduction in 2002 as the DL1000. Suzuki built the 2014 V-Strom 1000 to hold the middle ground in the Adventure Touring market. The bike is totally redesigned, and offers much at a reasonable price.

Beginning with the engine, Suzuki increased displacement of the venerable 90-degree V-Twin, upping it from 996cc to 1037cc. This helped bump horsepower to just over 99 at 8000 rpm, but, more importantly, bring more torque to riders at lower rpm.

It wasn’t all engine upgrades, though; Suzuki also upgraded the suspension, styling and ergonomics, and added much technology, including ABS and Traction Control, the latter a first on any Suzuki motorcycle.
