It doesn't do it for me other than to make me wonder if there's a DR small/medium waiting in the wings.

Its wrong....wrong wrong wrong
Suzy has spent years cultivating the V Strom market.
To dilute that (not to mention diluting the orig DR800) is NOT the approach
If Suzy wants to revive Dr Big...they should perform surgery on the DR650 instead

Nothing's out of date as long as you still enjoy using it. That goes for my CD collection, my Galaxy 3 phone, tube-type amplifiers, books made of actual paper, my bell bottom jeans (okay, just kidding about that one), and yes, my VStrom.

The last line of the article says the main photo is an old rendering, so we really have no idea what this sucker will look like. If it looks anything like that I’ll prefer it stylistically to the V-Strom, but if the weight is the same and they use the same engine I really don’t see the point.

You forgot to mention your mood ring!

I was reading on Advrider about the possibility of a new bike. It is rumored to use Strom 1000 engine. Any thoughts ?
