The Suzuki V-Strom replacement rumours are gaining ground with more teasers from the company although no real information is forthcoming.
The model will be a new Suzuki adventure bike, described as “middleweight” but currently there is no indication as to whether it will be a 650cc, 1000cc or even an 800cc motorcycle.
It looks like Suzuki will want to compete with the BMW F800GS, the new Triumph Tiger and perhaps even the Ducati Multistrada as so far it’s emphasising the adventure side of things – meaning we think it will probably come with more off-road capabilities.
The sport-offroad mix is not always an easy one to juggle, as seen by the current Suzuki V-Strom.
The model could be a completely revised bike with a new chassis, motor and design.
So far the teaser images indicate that the new V-Strom (for want of a better description) will be a worldwide launch.
The adventure bike should join the growing Japanese segment in enduro road goers, or offroad sportsbikes, after the Honda Crosstourer gets off the ground, too.
