58 Hi-Res Photos of the 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000

In case you missed it this morning, Suzuki dropped more details on its upcoming 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 adventure-touring bike. Building off its predecessor’s v-twin engine, Suzuki have coaxed nearly 100hp from the 90° twin, while adding the company’s first traction control system ever on a production-model motorcycle.

We expect the new Suzuki V-Strom 1000 to hit US soil with a price tag in the $12,500 range, making this ADV bike a very lucrative two-wheeler for any price-conscious motorcyclist who wants to get his (or her) feet dirty, while still having a great on-road experience.

To help whet your appetite on the new V-Strom’s impending official release, there are 58 high-resolution photos waiting for you in the gallery after the jump. Enjoy.

    Looks like its taking after the GS and the tiger adventure….

  • pooch

    Nah, still looks like a strom, now with added beak.

  • pooch

    …but 100hp and traction control at that price point is mighty good ! Is the TC switchable ?

  • qeldroma

    it took suzuki so damm long to design a perfectly ugly bike…!!! yay…!!!

  • smiler

    That is a trully aweful looking motorbike. All the wrong elements from a GS, Tiger and Multi.

  • Dave

    Was almost ready to sell three of my bikes to get this when I saw the sticker requiring 95 octane gas. Think I will keep my 2011 V Strom 650. Too bad because this bike had a lot going for it.

  • jimmy smith jr

    Dave, that bike is a EURO bike, rest assured the US version will run on 91 octane…..clean out your garage.

  • Jake F.

    Is that Öhlins suspension? No? Ditch the gold forks then.

    100 horsepower…!?!? be still my heart….!!!

    sidebar: (sigh) suzuki, if you lost the beak and made this bike a 1200 you would’ve had a player.

    re: “That is a trully aweful looking motorbike”

    well let’s be honest, none of them can be mistaken for “pretty”…? so in that respect if fits right in.

  • Anvil

    Do we have to see it in hi-res? It hurts.

  • Anvil

    Kidding aside, looks aren’t everything, for sure. I’d bet it’s a fine bike. And based on the pics, fit and finish looks pretty high.

    This bike = also ran

    For those commenting about octane ratings, you might want to brush up on the different measurement methods in use for different countries.

    If we are going by having to pick a FUGLY but rather UTILITARIAN Motorcycle, i would MUCH RATHER have this (also considered BY MANY as a really fugly bike):


    And as a close second the SuperTenere . . . with all the factory farkles available.

    Now for some day dreaming:

    Does Suzuki breathing new life into this engine and refining it means there’ll be more models in it’s line up sharing it ? New SV1000N and S Models ? PERHAPS even a proper SPORT-tourer (no silly 19″ front wheel and fugly beak ) ?

    I really hope so.

  • Peter Vstrom

    How does Suzuki expect a bike that is probably THAT good to sell with that Road Runner beak? My biker buddies will crack up laughing at me if I turn up on that! AND I ride a Glee already, so I know how good the bike will be…

  • Kurt Zumbühl

    An Aprilia Dorsoduro for poor people ?

  • meatspin

    this bike is awesome. I wish i had room in the garage. I’ve ridden bikes that had the engine that this one is derived from and if they’ve improved it, then it should be a sweet mill.

  • Bruce Monighan

    First photo I see ….cast wheels…game over. You must have wire wheels to be taken seriously in this category, Suzuki has never understood that. Guess they stil dont. No threat to my Tenere

  • Grant Madden

    one of those motors in a low stubby cafe racer with brutal suspension and noisy pipes.What fun that could be? More fun than a BMW wannabe trail bike with it’s head in the sky.
