    Suzuki V Strom for 2020- a new level of ugly

    I always look forward to the EICMA Milan show to see what exciting new toys we are in for.

    Unfortunately I can't un-see this disaster of styling. Suzuki describe it as a new level of "all new" Sorry Guys I describe it as a new level of ugly Back to the drawing boards and this time be sober or off the drugs or whatever.

    Lols, that is unfortunate! Looks more like the Harley adv bike that is coming out next year!
    Still, they are a good bike, I considered going back to one but will prolly move to something a bit lighter...

    Well it's certainly a bit different, that's for sure. Still, when it's competing against the Harley Pan-America almost anything is going to look good!

    They certainly have a knack for making the vstrom look...unique.

    I like it, kind of reminds me of a 90s Banshee.

    What it really needs is a bigger front wheel, and more protection for the exhaust, sump and oil filter

    I used to think the previous incarnation looked like Gonzo.

    Looks like a much younger, uglier stepsister to the Katana after daddy finally found a new tart to impregnate.

    and the Katana was fuckin ugly to start with . . .

    Won't bother me when I'm riding it.

    The big plus is nobody will want to pinch it.
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...
