SUZUKI V-STROM 650
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
