2015 strom 650 update for US?

the 2014 1000 is all new with all new engine and electronics and such (at least for US it is). anyone know of any rumors or trends that could point in the direction of the 650 getting a similar overhaul for next year. i will be buying a bike next spring and the strom 650 is on the very very short list (like its the only one on it ).

I seriously doubt the 650 gets redesigned. It came out in 2012, so it'll only be 3 years old in 2015. Maybe minor stuff gets updated, but I definitely dont think there will be an all new 650.

also, the Suzuki website says nothing about the difference between the adventure version and standard. only the picture shows paniers on the adv version. what is the difference?

Black/graphite color, side cases, crash bars, & windshield spoiler . . . Otherwise, same bike:

For 2014, The V-Strom 650 ABS Adventure is another choice in adventure touring. It has striking accessories that include sleek aluminum side cases large enough to fit a full-coverage helmet, a rugged accessory engine bar and an adjustable windscreen.
It also has the same improved performance as the original V-Strom 650 ABS. Its 645cc V-Twin engine has improved low-to-mid rpm performance, matched by enhanced fuel economy and environmental performance.

Going by Suzuki's prior history I would say the 650 gets updated about 2022. The 1000 remained unchanged other than a slight EFI update and change to the way the windshield mounts for more than a decade.

2014 ADV is graphite, not black. only the 2012's where black.

I agree, that sounds about right.

Too bad. A 21 inch wheel and the ability to turn off ABS would have made it a winner. For two grand more I can get those things pluss a three year warranty, more power and a fancy brand. Sorry Suzuki.

Agreed

Yeah, just putting a 21" tyre on the black adventure with spocked wheels, more travel, actual skid plate, would have gotten me more interested.

I still bought a Suzuki.

I think that's where they have a winner, for a couple grand less than the competition aka bimmer and tigers, they meet a price point that a lot of people don't want to cross. Sure you give up creature comforts (heated grips, traction control maybe, electronic susp on the adv 800 gs an option)...

But

For the purists it seeme that the ultra frugal on petrol vstrom is a home run? Am I wrong..

And would you really pay 12k+ for a 21" front and selectable abs on a wee storm adv??? Just sayin...

Nope, and you shouldn't have to. It should have that stuff right at the price it is now. Home Run.

I know that it's not apples to apples exactly BUT I'm looking at 12.5 OTD for an 800 with bags. I don't have an OTD price on the 650 Adventure but list is 10k. add another grand for whatever and I still don't have heated grips or a center stand (another $400 or so) and a one year warranty instead of a three year one and no loaner bike win mines in for service and yadda, yadda, yadda. There is a LOT of "stuff" that you get at the Bavarian Store for those two Grand.

I remember the SV's getting a new font on the tach gauge in 2007. Did they get dual spark plug heads too?
