Suzuki V-Strom 650 ABS 2014

Adventure bikes usually are tall, gangly, and heavy, but not this one. The middleweight V-Strom offers exceptional versatility that’s well suited to a daily commute, a trip to the wilds of Alaska—or anything in between. Its torquey V-twin engine, agile chassis, and roomy ergonomics impart the sort of comfort you normally would get only with a liter-class machine. Plus, the Adventure comes standard with big, top-loading side cases, rugged engine guards and an adjustable windscreen. Also available: The V-Strom 650 ABS is the same machine without the bags, crash guards, or adjustable windscreen.
