Versys Vs V-Strom: two safe values ​​in times of crisis !

All Duels - Versys Vs V-Strom: two sure values ​​in times of crisis! - Long haul trails

It is in difficult times that we see who we can count on … Our two road trails of the day are perfect allies to face all situations: shortage, traffic jams, rain, etc. Test… against all odds !

Long haul trails

If our two trails like arson, they also love to devour the kilometers greedily. In this exercise, the new Versys does very well and the V-Strom excels. Originally, the Suzuki offers very suitable upper body and knee protection, as well as remarkable saddle comfort..

Even if this feeling is very variable from one individual to another, the V-Strom undeniably offers one of the most comfortable saddles on the market, both for the rider and for his passenger. It will take long hours of travel to start feeling discomfort. In addition, no parasitic vibration tarnishes this high level of comfort..

Valorous Versys

In terms of comfort and protection, the Kawasaki is therefore a cut below its competitor but remains well above average! Its saddle is firm but very correct and the small adjustable bubble – with tools – does its job well..

The reception of the passenger is also slightly behind because of a thinner and above all very high saddle. The wide passenger handles covered with rubber, however, make it possible to hold on well and to hang a bag. Once again, the V-Strom is illustrated with its imposing luggage rack, more practical to stow.

Coffee break !

Our two competitors shine with their impressive fuel autonomy, thanks to their reasonable consumption and the good capacity of their tanks. With its 5.4 l / 100 km and its 19 liters of transport, the Versys flirts with the 300 km by typing a little in the reserve.

But the V-Strom is even stronger, since it consumes only 5.1 l / 100 km for a 22-liter tank. Thus, we only go into reserve around 320-340 km and we can therefore count on a theoretical autonomy of more than 400 km !

So, even if the comfort is at the top, we will stop before to rest and refuel the pilot rather than the machine.
