The rumors have been there for awhile, and now Suzuki is teasing the introduction of a middleweight adventure bike on its U.S. motorcycle site. The silhouette of the new motorcycle appears on the Suzuki motorcycle home page (screenshot above). I don’t know about you, but the silhouette looks a lot like the current V-Strom models to us. Nevertheless, the decade-old V-Stroms (displacing 1000cc and 650cc) are in need of an update, and rumors indicate the bike should be entirely new in terms of chassis, although featuring some version of either the 650cc or the 1000cc v-twin from the current models. We expect a formal announcement from Suzuki soon.
