The new models, which were on display at the popular MCN London show earlier this month, feature an all-new lightweight frame and an engine based on the iconic GSX-R1000 K5, highly regarded as one of the best road-going engines ever. The engine comes with new, lighter internals and redesigned cam profiles, while a three-stage traction control system comes straight from development in MotoGP.
The new V-Strom 650XT will be on display, which adds even more adventure to the already established V-Strom 650 with updated styling and DID wire-spoke wheels that increase performance on unpaved roads. Hand guards, aluminium sump guard and engine bars also complete the look and offer even more practicality. Also on display from the V-Strom stable will be the V-Strom 1000 Sport edition and the V-Strom 1000 that Bike Magazine rode from their based in Peterborough in the UK to the factory it was built in in Hamamatsu, Japan.
The GSX-R1000, which comes in the stunning MotoGP livery for 2015, will be on the stand, alongside the special Hayabusa Z, GSR750, VanVan 125, Inazuma 250, Burgman 650 Executive luxury scooter and the Intruder M1800RBZ performance cruiser.
The MCN Scottish Show takes place from Saturday 7 – Sunday 8 March, with doors opening at 9am on both days.
