Boasting new levels of engineering performance, the all-new Suzuki V-Strom 1000 builds on a heritage of adventure touring that Suzuki started 25 years ago.
"Suzuki has an enviable history of pioneering new trends, with revolutionary motorcycles such as the DR750S, the first ATV and the legendary Hayabusa," said Suzuki Australia Motorcycles National Marketing Manager Lewis Croft.
"This latest V-Strom once again demonstrates the essence of Suzuki motorcycle engineering, with a host of exciting new features."
