Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom H&B 3 Boxes ABS Review
Since we love adventures, we don’t want to waste he opportunity of test riding the Suzuki DL1000 V-Strom H&B 3 Boxes ABS. On a calm sunny day, we are done preparing and ready for take-off. At a glance, we already noticed the striking look of the V-Strom, its curvy slim body and black matted parts with glossy tank side. Looking aggressive, we wonder how it is on the road.
We are startled on how the machine quickly comes to life. It’s torquey and powerful we reached around 80 lb.ft. @ 4200 rpm while on the road. It’s absolutely smooth and confidence boosting. Turning off its traction control and we did exceptional wheelies. It was so amazing and we couldn’t help ourselves but to continue riding till we hit our destination.
For us, traction control is not really a must feature but it is a big plus on the V-Strom. Keeping us steady at high speed, is the Anti-lock braking System which comes standard on this motorcycle however it’s non-switchable. It took us a little time to trigger the ABS system but its worthy, gives good feeling and supplies adequate stopping power.
They said V-Strom handles very well even with a passenger on board but we never had the chance to try it. With its good suspension, wide handlebars, comfortable seat and a lively engine, riding the bike is satisfaction guaranteed.
Long distance travel will require luggage thanks to Hepco & Becker panniers. We did store our bags, foods and other stuffs to keep our tour going. We appreciate the ample space available on each panniers.
