2016 ON A 66 PLATE The V-Strom is never going to electrify you with thrills. It’s not breathtakingly quick, but it is easy to ride and manageable, delivering loads of low and midrange grunt. You can throw it around with confidence and it’s backed up by excellent traction control and ABS. It’s also comfortable, natural, frugal and simple – yet still has neat touches like an adjustable ratchet screen and panniers incorporated into the design. It’s distinctive, looks good, there’s a comprehensive list of accessories and it’s cheap.
The riding position is roomy and natural, the bars high and wide without forcing the rider to over-stretch and the brilliantly simple screen easy to adjust on the move. As you’d expect from a bike with a 19-inch front wheel, the steering isn’t razor sharp, but it flows nicely in and out of corners, helped by a 150-section tyre that makes it easier to turn. The suspension control is surprisingly sophisticated, too. The front neither dives dramatically on the brakes nor wallows and the radial brakes are a big step up from the old V-Strom, strong and progressive.
