Suzuki’s V-Strom range gets GT upgrades
Suzuki are making it easier to smash out those epic trips by producing GT versions of the bikes in their mile-munching V-Strom 650 and 1000 range.
Essentially, the biggest difference between the GT variants and the standard machines will be the spacious 64 litre luggage capacity thanks to the addition of panniers and a top box, both of which will be included on the GT machines.
Adding to this will be new bodywork that calls to the glory-days of the DR-Z and DR-Big motorcycles. A 1kg weight reduction will also accompany the new machines, as will a handy 12v socket as standard.
The V-Strom range got an overhaul for 2017, with revisions to both the 650 and 1000 models to bring them up to date with Euro 4 emission and noise regulations.
