An outstanding mid-sized street-focused adventure bike, the standard 2016 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS has become a highly versatile staff favorite at Ultimate MotorCycling.Part of what makes the V-Strom 1000 work so well is its 1037cc motor, which always seems to have power when you need it, yet is docile whenever you want it to be. There are a few technological features, include two levels of traction control (plus off), and full-time ABS. Tokio monobloc calipers are used up front on the 310mm discs, and the Enkei wheels are 10-spoke cast aluminum.
This week Teejay chats to Tyler Poppe. Tyler works on the TV show Mayans MC–and yet he doesn’t ride an American V-Twin. Wassup with that?? Also, Arthur finds out from friend Mike Cardillo about his thoughts on the full-size version of the Kawasaki KLX 140R F trail bike.
