SUZUK V-STROM XT1000

PRETTY IN

BLUE

We were lucky enough to bag ourselves the

latest rendition of Suzuki’s 1000 V-Strom

XT1000 so pretty in blue livery.

Ok we know – we’ve featured these

bikes before, but usually we ride solo and

we tend to throw them at the roughest

terrain that we can find - which often is not

what they are really made for.

For this event, we included SWAMBO

(She Who Always Must Be Obeyed), as a

happy passenger and clocked just on 700

KM’s of saddle time from Home in JHB to

the event and back again.

If you are thinking about owning a

Suzuki V-Strom, it is a great choice. And

here’s why…

Although it isn’t the most glamorous

litre-sized adventure-touring motorcycle,

it’s clear that Suzuki drives a hard bargain

with its V-Strom 1000. For 2019, it offers an

up-spec XT 1000 Adventure model outfitted

with hard luggage, engine protection, a

centrestand, and heated grips for an asking

price of just on 170 odd K. These days, that

is a lot of motorcycle for your money.
