Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > V-Strom 1000 ABS
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The V-Strom 1000 is Suzuki's flagship adventure bike. It's pavement-biased, but extremely competent in that role, and has good fit and finish as well. It is very competitively priced and comes with damping-adjustable suspension, ABS, accessory outlet, selectable ride modes and traction control as standard. Probably the best bargain in its class.
