V-Strom pap...Let's see some aggressive styling
When are the bike manufacturer's going to produce an adventure bike that looks a millon dollars?
Ktm ruined the Adventure's looks, Bmw has always been weird so i'll let them off, Triumph Tiger 1200, overweight behemoth, good engine i hear though, Triumph Tiger 1050 well not strictly an adventure bike but Ducati MS nearest rival, again road bike only, Honda's attempt looks like the gentleman's Range Rover, Yamaha Super Ten looks cheap and nasty, Moto Guzzi Stelvio looks thrown together, Ducati MS is a road bike plain and simple.
Suzuki V-Strom, great engine, looks jeez....... The old model had a nice looking frame, good engine weird marmite looks, but the NEW model what a dissapointment.
Do something with the looks will ya...I bet it'll cost plenty to own one!!!
Why on earth mess with the frame? The seat and colour scheme look 90's shell suit era, tacky, the forks and Rad cals are a welcome addition though, the exhaust is atrocious, the sub frame looks an after thought and basically it looks crap. If it's going to be road only let's see the 190/50 back tyre and 150bhp engine, 55mpg, Suzuki.
I want to see desert racer factory looks, give these bikes an identity....Off road looks with on/off ability, or make em' strictly for the road and don't call then adventure bikes.
They're tourer's, simple as that pretending to be something they aren't, apart from the KTM and Beemer to a point. Right, that's my rant over with.......
