V-Twin Engine

Powered by Suzuki’s highly acclaimed 1037cc, 90° V-twin, DOHC engine which has further evolved with the latest iteration boasting increased top-end power whilst also conforming to Euro 5 emissions standards.

Thanks to new camshaft profiles and timing, peak horsepower has increased considerably  to 79kW / 8,500rpm (106hp).

The highly refined engine begins with a deep rumble low in the rpm range, then progresses through the mid-range along a strong and linear torque curve then keeps building through the high rpm range in a smooth yet enjoyable manner.

DNA Styling

The distinctive styling incorporates elements of both Suzuki’s legendary DR-Z desert racer and the large off-road model DR-BIG. The characteristic beak design first adopted by Suzuki stays true to Suzuki’s heritage while also further evolving the design to be more aggressive and bolder for the new generation V-STROM.

Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S)

The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S) includes the Motion Track Brake System, Hill Hold Control System, Slope Dependent Control System and Load Dependent Control System that assist in braking, and the Cruise Control System, Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), and Traction Control System that assist in driving. The system provides users with intelligent controls to enhance ease of use and convenience in touring and daily life.

  • [A] Motion Track Brake System

    This updated system combines information of the posture of the vehicle with the front and rear wheel speeds. This allows the ABS to activate not only in a straight line but also when the vehicle is leaning.

  • [B] Hill Hold Control System

    Automatically applies the rear brake when the motorcycle is stopped on an upward slope to prevent rollback when the brakes and clutch are released.

  • [C] Slope Dependent Control

    Constantly monitors posture and if required controls brake pressure to prevent rear wheel lift during downhill braking.

  • [D] Load Dependent Control

    Supports optimal braking by compensating for varying load conditions such as the difference between riding solo or with a pillion and loaded luggage vs unloaded.

  • [E] Cruise Control System

    Works in conjunction with the new ride-by-wire throttle system to maintain the set vehicle speed without the rider needing to operate the throttle, a welcomed feature for long-distance touring that assists in reducing rider fatigue.

  • [F] Suzuki Drive Mode Selector

    Offers riders the choice of three difference output characteristic modes. A-mode provides the sharpest throttle response, B-mode provides a slightly softer throttle response and C-mode provides the softest response of the three modes.

  • [G] Traction Control System

    Features three modes of control inspiring greater confidence in diverse riding conditions. Mode 1 is for spirited riding with minimal level of intervention. Mode 2 is ideal for commuting and regular riding conditions and Mode 3 is best suited for poorer riding conditions such as wet or cold roads as it offers the highest level of intervention.

Aluminium twin-spar frame

The lightweight cast aluminium twin-spar frame realises the optimal rigidity balance for stability and handling performance. The swingarm is also constructed from aluminium and supports the balance and light handling characteristics of the motorcycle.

V-STROM 1050 Reviews

See what the motorcycle media had to say about the latest generation V-STROM 1050XT.

Motorcyclenews.com (UK)
Ridermagazine.com (USA)

"Keep the oil changes up to it and I’d bet that it will just about go forever without a spanner ever being put upon it, outside of tyre changes and general servicing. The Suzuki has always been a much safer option in that regard than the European opposition, and that certainly still rings true today."

Trevor Hedge - MCNews.com.au

"All in all, an excellent and solid step forward for the beloved V-Strom. If you liked the old one, you’ll love the new one."

Boris Mihailovic - BikeMe.tv

"That engine is a gem………Its built tough and when you’re long distance guy like me, you’ll really appreciate it…….its a pretty big tick from me"

Greg Leech - Infomoto.com.au

"From seating comfort and wind protection to throttle response, engine performance and handling, the V-Strom 1050XT felt well rounded and satisfying to ride."
