I was the lucky one in the team to be asked to attend this years’ Suzuki trial for the new V-Strom 1050 in Madrid, Spain. We flew out on a Wednesday morning and by midday were out testing the bikes in the glorious, crisp, clear sunshine of Spain. I found the model to be very refreshing, the bike still has the amazing turning agility, comfort and fuel efficiency. I did not expect to see such a change in technology, having a 6-axis IMU onboard to help assist with braking and power distribution, LCD display, Hill Hold System, three levels of power response, cruise control and many more. Time to fly home on the Thursday afternoon and I was back to reality and airport ques as there were strikes… still it was great 24 hours and i’m looking forward to sharing my experience of the bike with any interested parties this year.
