2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS: First Photos And Specs

Essentially identical to the concept unveiled at Intermot last year, these first photos and complete details of the production 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS reveal a shockingly complete, high-spec, powerful, relatively light ADV bike.

The first generation V-Strom 1000 was launched back in 2002 and has remained in production since. Styling was never a strong point, but fitted with a version of the old Tl1000S’ powerful v-twin housed in an aluminum beam frame, performance definitely was.
