Here is a review of the new 800cc parallel twin version of Suzuki's V-Strom series of models. I have no idea if it will replace the 650 V-twin or supplement it. But this new bike is definitely heavier and more expensive than the 650, although I do appreciate its 5.3 gallon fuel tank. You don't see fuel tanks that large lately on new Euro 5 models.

The V in the name was supposed to represent the V configuration of the engine. I guess they didn't want to call the new bike the P Stream  ;)

P-Strom? P-Strong? Pro-Strom?  No good answers here... :o ;D
