May 18, 2015

If the weekend is a distant memory and you’re struggling to deal with the reality of Monday, we’re here with a review guaranteed to cheer you up. In today’s edition of Motorbike Mondays, we’re taking a look at the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Adventure. As far as Suzukis go, this adventure bike was highly anticipated and, thanks to being an impressive all-rounder, we can see why. In today’s Suzuki V-Strom 1000 review, we’ll take a look at all that the Japanese manufacturer has to offer – and if you’re interested in our Suzuki finance options, we can help there, too. Let’s get this show on the road.

Design

The V-Strom 1000 Adventure’s design was inspired by Suzuki’s first big on/off-road machine, the 1988 DR750S. The bike comes with a slim, lightweight frame – but despite its appearance, Suzuki have warned that the bike isn’t suitable for off-road riding. The Antilock Brake System (ABS) and traction control seem to support this statement, as neither are optimised for off-road capability. A broad seat and upright riding position make the bike easy to ride as well as being rather comfy. The angle of the windscreen has three adjustable positions, allowing the rider to find the best visibility option for them – even while riding.

Performance and Handling

In terms of performance, the V-Strom 1000 Adventure is an easy-to-handle, rider-friendly bike. With strong acceleration and impressive braking power, this bike will be right at home on the road. The traction control system, a first for Suzuki, coupled with the ABS provide welcome assistance in challenging road conditions.
