Following the launch of the new V-Strom 650 ABS, Suzuki has launched three new accessory packs. The trio offer owners of the new adventure bike a pack for the daily commute, weekend away or continental tour.
The ‘Tourer Pack’ features a Knuckle Guard set, providing handy protection from the elements, a useful 14-litre magnetic Tank Bag, Tank Protector, a styled Under Cowling, Accessory Bar and branded Chain Guard. The pack is priced £499 (all pack prices include fitment and VAT).
If you’re planning on covering longer distances, the £999 Adventure Pack offers all the features of the Tourer Pack (excluding the Tank Bag) but with the addition of a 42-litre Top Case set.
The Adventure kit also comes with Suzuki’s useful Vario Touring Screen, which allows the rider to set the level of weather protection to suit, as well as a maintenance-friendly Centre Stand.
But if you’re going the whole hog this Christmas and taking all Santa’s pressies on your Suzuki, then you’ll be after the GT Pack.
Ok, it’ll set you back £1299 (you could buy another bike for that!) but it’s comprehensive. You get virtually every component from the Adventure Pack, but with additional carrying capacity thanks to side cases providing a useful 70-litres of extra luggage space.
But whatever motorcycle you’re riding in these winter conditions, ride carefully.
