Motorcycle News (UK) - - GARAGE -

The V-strom looks stun­ning freshly cleaned, the bright yel­low paint­work glis­ten­ing in the sun – but keep­ing it clean is quite a task. Of course, that glis­ten­ing yel­low is the big­gest prob­lem. It might look great clean, but it re­ally shows the dirt.

The plas­tic around the dash and the front of the bike cleans well with MucOff’s Mo­tor­cy­cle cleaner, but I strug­gle to keep the plas­tic en­gine guard clean. Even af­ter a wash it can look dirty.

The other is­sue with clean­ing the V-strom is those lovely spoked wheels. While they’re one of my favourite things about the bike, they are an ab­so­lute bitch to clean and then main­tain.

Stun­ning when clean, but shows the dirt
