    Suzuki V-Strom Review. Probably one of the most forgettable motorcycles you have ever seen. Chances are you might not have even.

    At 6-foot-2, I felt as though the bike was sized just for me, and that I could ride for days on end without discomfort. The full specification SV engine has been transplanted, and offers roughly 5 more claimed hp, incorporating new camshafts and low-friction resin-coated pistons. The windscreen is taller than before and thus offers better protection and is also adjustable through three planes of angle to further customise it to individual tastes. But this motorcycle might as well be wrapped in the same stealth material as the SR blackbird.

    Suzuki have taken an already good bike and made it great - not because it boasts all the latest tech, but because it does the simple things even better - and that's all that really matters.

    The rear suspension is preload adjustable, with no adjustment available on the forks, but Suzuki have done a great job dialing in the standard settings, which sit on the slightly soft side of plush.

    When it comes to the cornering the suspension copes just as well, soaking up any bumps and doing a great job of keeping you on your desired line. The SV engine remains as fun and flexible as ever.

    Stick it in third gear and it'll drive out of tight 20mph hairpins without bogging down. There are a few tingles through the bars and seat at around rpm, but nothing too intrusive. The V-twin engine used in the V-Strom should go down as one of the best engines of all time. The SVbased engine has been around since the nineties and is pretty bulletproof.

    Suzuki used to have a slightly iffy reputation when it came to finishing, but that's no longer the case. The V-Strom XT certainly isn't in the same league as the top adventure bikes when it comes to gizmos, but it doesn't need them.

    You get ABS and traction control as standard and the screen is adjustable with allen keys. Read what they have to say and what they like and dislike about the bike below.

    Handles well with good low down V twin grunt, fully loaded with luggage solo it handles with ease. But struggles if you add a pillion. Getting between to out of a tank so the range is excellent. Had a great experience with my local Suzuki dealer, long road test and and great customer service. Only had four days to run it in before an mile euro trip but they fitted me in.

    My friend Bradley quit his job, left his missus, tucked his Honda Hornet in a garage and bought a The V-Strom seems to be a popular bike and I often get sent questions from owners or potential Having spent the last few years riding A2 licence friendly bikes, I was keen to step up to something My first miles with the big XT have mainly been a baptism of ice and snow, rather than fire.
