Suzuki to Unveil New Middleweight Adventure Bike

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Last week Suzuki sent out an invitation to the European press for an unnamed launch event stating the Japanese manufacturer would be releasing a new middleweight model by the end of June. Speculation was that the new machine would be an updated version of the DL650 V-Strom. This week, Suzuki’s US and Canadian websites are sporting teaser images with the awkward caption, “Middle-class New Motorcycle Coming soon.” It seems then that the new model will be released worldwide. And while the teaser’s glowing neon blue design sketches are certainly evocative of a rejigged V-Strom, as rumoured, still at question is whether the new adventure tourer will have a larger engine, somewhere in the 800 cc range, to better compete with Triumph’s Tiger 800 and BMW’s F800GS. Word is we’ll find out Saturday. Stay tuned.
