just looking at those passenger foot peg mounts. those look like the cheaper steel ones found on the 650 vrs the nicer alum ones the 1000 has. sure is a different USD front end w/ ADV tires not Versys 1000 photochop. it's an intriguing angle if it's a true leak as cast vrs spoked wheel is still hidden.

if suzuki comes through with better suspension and tubeless spoked wheels they would probably still be lower priced (like using steel foot peg mounts to watch costs) and could create one hell of a buzz in the adv market. 1000cc twin could be the goldilocks engine size for many as other adv bikes keep creeping up in engine size. the other pics still show cast wheels however. http://www.vstrom.altervista.org/

They'd do well to mimic the upgrades of new 650 from what I hear about it to the extent possible, and make it tough - Super Tenere tough is exaggerated if one wants to keep costs down, but striving towards it. In the same vein, paying plenty of attention to weight distribution would pay off I think. I'd also be for having a large front. A 1k twin, even if new, would feel familiar to all those having known stroms for a long time, and would have enough grunt. The others are already doing 1200 in various configurations, and while I like displacement, there's also a weight penalty which always is pointed out when those bikes are discussed. 1k is a perfect engine size.

Omg... please make it now! I already want one!

Interesting stuff. They do need one - as well as a GSXR 125. I still wonder if they'll go multi cylinder like the Versys 1000..

Hey why not use that old oil/air cooled lump? After they put it into God knows how many different bikes with how many different bore and stroke sizes and it's still a rock'n motor.

Heh. That would be cool. A Wes Cooley / Dr Big uber trailie retro..

I had this discussion with a mate that works at the local 'zook store. They need a small race rep, some new standards and a big trailie type bike.
The bandit has ceased it's production run - so maybe they'll kill 2 birds with one stone and make a IL4 based all rounder.

It's confirmed since January that they will come out with a new DL1000 in 2013. Strange that you haven't had the news yet.


Suzuki will come out in 2013 with these new models:

GSR 1000, DL 1000 V-Strom and GSR 1000 F


But anyway it was obvious wasn't it? I mean like triumph, why would they just make a facelift on the Speed Triple without doing one of the Street Triple? They feared that the people were confused with two new similar looking models and that's why both waited one year before coming out with the other facelift.

I think Suzuki is waiting for the Intermot in October to present something concrete.

if you can understand french of course.

It says that they introduced themselfs in the Suzuki meeting in Paris and that they heard it from the Boss himself.

It's a serious webside which wouldn't bring out crap if you think that.

I'll go to the Intermot for the 1250GS. Wasn't in my plans but if you want (and if Suzuki is presenting something there) I can see if I find something about the new Wee and take pics.

Oh for the love of all which is holy, let it come in white and let it be even half as pretty as the newest V-Strom 650 and I will buy it so hard!

Ive got a white 2012 DL650... yeah, I like the looks!

But something "confirmed" on a French magazine / website... AND on January 19th this year Suzuki confirmed something for 2013?? What a strange time of the year to make such announcement! And nice photoshopped images there, but seems more like wishful thinking once again. I do hope Im wrong, though, it would be nice to see something new come along.

Luckily the big shows in Cologne, or Munich, or wherever they have them this year, are not far away, so then well know.
