THE MASTER OF ADVENTURE
These new models offer you a choice geared toward your desire to explore different types of adventure. The V-Strom 1050DE has enhanced performance and control when exploring further on gravel and dirt with its 21-inch front wheel, longer travel suspension, bespoke ergonomics, greater ground clearance and gravel specific braking and traction control options and more.
Models shown with optional accessories.
The 1,037cc four-stroke, 90° V-Twin, DOHC engine features strong linear torque in the mid-rpm range, and a free-revving nature that maximises power output in the high-rpm range. There is also a profound pleasure to its distinctive V-Twin rumble and exhaust note. Its V-Twin layout also allows for a slimmer chassis design with a lower centre of gravity, and this contributes to more agile handling and greater manoeuvrability.
TUNED EXHAUST SYSTEM
The 2-into-1 exhaust system produces a unique and enjoyable sound that befits the V-Twin engine. Better yet, the high-efficiency catalytic converter inside the collector helps comply with Euro 5 emission standards, while at the same time maximising power output and overall performance.
SUZUKI CLUTCH ASSIST SYSTEM (SCAS)
SCAS delivers smooth operation and a light touch to clutch lever operation that helps reduce left hand fatigue. At the same time, it ensures positive power transfer when accelerating and smoother deceleration when downshifting, advantages it also brings to the new Bi-directional Quick Shift system as well.
PURPOSEFUL WHEELS AND TYRES
The V-Strom 1050DE takes advantage of wire-spoked wheels with aluminium rims to better endure the potential pounding when exploring trails and other rough surfaces. It also adopts a larger 21-inch front rim for greater stability and better control on gravel and flat dirt. Both wheels are shod with Dunlop TRAILMAX MIXTOUR tyres, which feature a semi-block tread pattern and custom-designed internal structure that delivers the solid traction and performance you want when exploring varied terrain and trails. Model shown fitted with optional accessories.
KYB inverted front forks with 43mm inner tubes deliver a smooth, controllable ride and feature stable damping characteristics well suited to adventure riding. Fully adjustable, they allow you to match settings to your preference or intended use. The link-type monoshock KYB rear suspension contributes to agility and stability, and its preload can be adjusted by simply turning the dial by hand. The V-Strom 1050DE suspension adopts a longer stroke, with 170mm of front and 169mm of rear travel. The suspension’s spring rate, valve, and piston settings are custom tuned for riding on unpaved surfaces.
ERGONOMICS & SEAT FOR ANY TERRAIN
Dedicated chassis geometry is designed to deliver greater stability and controllability on gravel or flat dirt, while providing a comfortable riding position and well-balanced front/rear weight distribution. The V-Strom 1050DE also adopts a fixed-height seat design that reduces weight while also achieving greater rigidity. This durable seat better stands up to input load when riding on unpaved surfaces, as well as to weight shifts as you change position to master the terrain. Optional higher (30mm) and lower (30mm) seats are also available from the Genuine Accessories range. Model shown fitted with optional accessories.
SUZUKI TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM (STCS) & GRAVEL (G) MODE
Designed to help prevent the rear wheel from slipping, this system reduces stress and fatigue while instilling greater confidence in controlling your ride. You can select from 3 modes to control how quickly the system takes effect and how proactive it is in limiting wheel spin, or you can opt to run with it turned off.
BI-DIRECTIONAL QUICK SHIFT SYSTEM
This standard-equipment feature lets you shift up or down without operating the clutch lever. When activated, the system delivers clean, silky smooth upshifts with uninterrupted acceleration. Downshifts are also quick and smooth, thanks in part to automatic hands-free blipping and engine braking working together harmoniously.
CRUISE CONTROL SYSTEM
Cruise control reduces fatigue when travelling long distances at constant speeds by letting you maintain a set speed without operating the throttle. The system allows settings when riding in 2nd gear or higher at engine speeds between 2,000rpm and 7,000rpm, which translates to vehicle speeds of roughly 15mph to 100mph. The handy resume function re-engages the system and returns to the most recent speed setting after cancelling.
The new V-Strom 1050DE is powered by the latest iteration of Suzuki’s distinctive, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 90° V-Twin DOHC engine. The product of many years of development by a dedicated team of passionate engineers, this engine has long-enjoyed a reputation for delivering enjoyable character, power, reliability, and a great sound-track for your next adventure.
