DL1000 not meets euro3. Tough it is still on sale in US.
Bigger engine: yeah, V2 800cc and slightly reduced weight.

650 is plenty fast enough for us commuter types who don't want to have to sell kidneys to pay for the petrol. Sure do an 800 Suzuki, just don't kill off the little brother.
Besides, with a standard screen anything above 80mph on a strom is deafening.
they really do need to drop the front wheel down to a 17 though and stop pretending people offroad with these things.
