V-Strom 1000 (2002 - 2013): Designed For The Adventurer

The SUZUKI V-Strom 1000 '02 -'13, or the DL1000 models, were designed and built for the adventurer who needs a powerful long-distance bike that can handle sharp turns. The 996 cc V-twin-engine motorcycles have been popular since 2002 when the bikes were first introduced. The 2002 adventure bike was originally produced to give motorcycle racers a safe and reliable bike to use during races as well as daily transportation as needed.

Features of bikes released during 2002 to 2013 include adjustable feet seat height beginning at 32.7 inches high and can reach 60 inches. The overall bike length from front to back wheel is less than 91 inches making it easy to house in the smallest of garages or storage units and park. The cushioned seat is meant to help riders stay comfortable and in control of the motorcycle for long stretches of time.

The 2002-2013 Suzuki V-Strom DL 1000 received 77.1 out of 100 on bikez.com, one of the most popular reference websites for motorcycle lovers. The fuel system is injection with a compression reading with a compression rate of 11.3:1. Double overhead cams/ twin cams (DOHC) have provided maximum fuel.

The gearbox includes a 16-gear shift which optimizes control as the rider navigates rough terrain, especially while taking part in motorcycle off-road vehicle races or riding in wet conditions that may affect the tire traction of any vehicle. The dual-sport bike weighs 207 kg (456 lb) making it one of the lighter motorcycles on the market. Other bikes can weigh up to 550 lbs and heavier. Suzuki continues to produce lighter models.

The SUZUKI V-Strom 1000 '02 -'13 models were made with a greater alternator output capacity that was originally 350 watts then increased to 400 watts. The turn signals, an important safety feature in all off-road vehicles, were improved upon with each of the newer Suzuki V-Strom 1000 '02-'13 models having more prominent turn signals to alert other drivers and riders on the road. The added durability features, like stronger handlebars, dust covers, and anti-breakage mirrors adding years to the bike's life and greatly reducing maintenance costs.
