The Suzuki V-Strom seems to be the flavour of the season at BikeWale. We had compared it with the Kawasaki Versys 650 a little over three months ago. It won that test. And, now here it is again; this time going up against the Benelli TRK 502X.
As it turns out, the V-Strom and the TRK are even more closely related than the Suzuki and the Kawasaki. Both the V-Strom and 502X come with spoked wheels; 19-inch at the front and 17-inch in the rear. Both employ twin-cylinder engines. And besides featuring crash protection and tall screens and knuckle guards, both motorcycles look totally desirable.
