New Suzuki V-Strom Delayed Until Tomorrow

While Suzuki has been hyping some sort of middleweight adventure-tourer, suspected to be an 800cc V-Strom, the company has missed its original unveil date of Saturday June 11th. Now Suzuki sites are touting a new date: tomorrow (Wednesday June 15th), which we suppose we’ll forgive Suzuki for this blunder, provided the new model blows our socks off. So far no one has said why the date has been pushed back, though we’d like to start a good rumor of a headlight fluid shortage at Suzuki HQ.

Nonetheless, we’re sure the Suzuki faithful can handle another 24 hours of waiting, as the new V-Strom is expected to have a new look, new chassis, and new motor. Details beyond those basics are still non-existant, though some smart guessing is that the bike will go head-to-head with the new Triumph Tiger 800 & Tiger 800 XC, as well as the class-leading BMW F800GS. More info as we get it, but check back on Wednesday.
