Video: Suzuki V-Strom takes on rivals

The new Suzuki V-Strom already impressed MCN when we rode it at the launch. The replacement of the bike’s old SV650 motor with a new Gladius-derived unit, a full restyle and lashings of extra refinement moved the V-Strom up to a new level.

But our test shows that, despite Suzuki’s best efforts, it still falls short of the powerful, more expensive Triumph Tiger 800. But is the Triumph worth the extra £850?
