Bike to Japan

Event Bio

Journalists from Britain's best selling motorcycle title, Bike Magazine, are embarking on a epic adventure taking Suzuki's all-new V-Strom 1000 back to the very factory it was built in - Hamamatsu, Japan.

Starting from Bike's home town of Peterborough in the UK, the V-Strom 1000 is being piloted by a tag team of just three riders to Japan, including editor Hugo Wilson, Bike's adventure expert Jamie Duncan and experienced journalist Jon Westlake.

Follow the riders and the V-Strom 1000 here, as they #Biketojapan.
