I love my motorcycle ....
Sorry Vstromers but I think the Varadero is a better VStrom. I should have bought one of these four years ago instead of the Multistrada, its a great bike.
It has been 4 years since I owned my Strom and at the time was the best bike I had ever owned but the Vara seems better out of the box.
Handles better without braces and fancy smancy high dollar shocks
Huge fuel tank
Same V Twin grunt.
Specs say it's heavier but it feels lighter.
All I've done to it is a smaller front sprocket and a speedohealer to match.
By the way did I say I love my motorcycle....
