Suzuki VX 800 Overview
Produced from 1990 to 1997, the VX 800 is a naked Suzuki machine designed by Don Presnell, Aki Goto and Sam Yamazaki. The VX 800 is one of the only V-Twin standards ever made, with great torque and power and a standard riding position.
Although a relatively heavy bike, it is easy to handle both on busy streets and open roads. The bike has a rather slim build and so is easy to manoeuvre and filter through traffic.
This motorcycle is a good fit for taller bikers, with low forward foot pegs giving enough room for longer legs. The handle bars are slightly raised and so those of a taller build can ride comfortably.
The brakes are effective and will certainly keep you out of trouble, while the seat is comfortable for around the first 50 miles of a ride, after that you may begin to ache and need a short break from the road.
