I have to say I am very impressed with the 2012+ vstrom. My dad bought one and loves it. I look forward to getting some miles on it as well!

Saw this cool ADV-Strom at the Montreal Motorcycle Show today. Really nice spoked-wheel conversion.





Don't know anything about it, so no idea who did the conversion.

Here's another option:

ABS and tubeless! Still spendy, though.

Why do the hard bags on the 650 stick out soo far no the new 2012 adventure model, they look silly to me. I went and saw one at a dealer yesterday and the bag situation just looks wrong to me??

I do prefer the look of the new ones over the older style, I do have one question.
Could they make the exhaust can any bigger?

I saw this today on ultimatemotorcycling.com

Suzuki DL650 Exhaust
Two Brothers Racing has released a new two-into-one 3/4″ exhaust system for the Suzuki V-Strom DL650.

Where did you get the DL650 Adventure graphics from? I will be getting one in the next few days and would love to switch the "S" for the decals.

looked at a 2012 "used" with 0 miles at my dealer yesterday... if they could offer the 0% financing, i'd have bought it.. i'm still thinking of a way around it.. one thought; i didn't realize how BIG these bikes are.. but i'm small and i'm coming from a naked SV650..

I picked up a 2012 DL1000 and got the 0% financing. Talk to another dealership if you are really looking at getting one.
