Why L’Iroquoise ?
Because the Iroquois were one of the most powerful and influential Indian nations in America and played an instrumental role in the development of New France, the English colonies and the final resolution of the French-English struggle. We are looking with respect back to the past, when “The first Nations” were the truly landlords of North American Territories.
Proud to represent the “Native” part of this project. So, I am inviting you to jump in the Canadian adventure together.
They chose me because I am a mid-weight, sport touring motorcycle with a standard riding posture with fuel injection and an aluminum chassis. I am well known for adaptability to a variety of riding conditions: commuting, cruising, adventure touring, and to a lesser degree, off-road riding. For those reasons, I am variously categorized as dual sport, sport enduro tourer, street/adventure, commuter, or entry-level.
Since the first model showed up in 2004, this bike has been tested and used by many riders all over the world and has been well appreciated for the strongly built engine, low maintenance and reliability. Marketed in Europe, Oceania, and the Americas, the DL650 is manufactured at Suzuki’s ISO 14001 certified final assembly plant in Toyokawa, Japan. The name V-Strom combines V, referring to the bike’s V engine configuration, with the German word Storm, meaning stream or current.
