Riding on a Suzuki Vstrom 1000 through Peru

The Suzuki Vstrom 1000 resembles a lot to the smaller Suzuki Vstrom 650. This is only the outside; the big difference is the engine. Once you step on this motorcycle and you start accelerating you will feel the power. The Suzuki Vstrom 1000 is a heavy all-rounder. But with its 228 kg, it weights fairly light for a heavy motorcycle. The bike accelerates very quick and the steering is really great. In the corners it keeps its line very well and this is very pleasant when riding in the mountains of Peru. The bike is equipped with traction control and ABS making the riding even more comfortable and easy. The Suzuki Vstrom 1000 is an excellent bike for asphalt, but also manages very well riding on more rough terrain. And this is what you sometimes need in Peru as you might encounter some dirt roads. It will certainly raise the level of adventure of your ride.

Overall the Suzuki Vstrom 1000 is a very comfortable and adventurous motorcycle, very suitable for larger tours in Peru. After a full day riding you will still be fresh, already looking forward to go riding the next day.
