We don't normally do bikes on The Mud Life, but as I know quite a few people who ride them, I thought I'd publish this press release from Suzuki that's just come through. They've launched a new, three-piece aluminium luggage set for its V-Strom 1000 and V-Strom 1000XT models with a special offer that can save customers over £300.
Available in both silver and black, the top box and pannier combo boasts 112 litres of carrying capacity, and comes with an RRP of £1195, which includes fitting. It represents a saving of £332 over the cost of the individual items.
Other accessory options for the V-Strom 1000 include a handy 15 litre tank bag (£182), engine bars (£245), centre stand (£255), and higher or lower seat options (£185).
Suzuki’s V-Strom 1000 range blends the attributes of middleweight adventure bikes and larger capacity machines, with an agile chassis and characterful, torquey V-twin engine. It also has a two-mode traction control system, that can be turned off, and cornering ABS.
