2016 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS

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.
