Big Heritage, Big Adventures
You've got the power, anywhere, anytime. Slim and light, the powerful V-Twin unit will always provide the necessary amount of drive no matter what the situation. The grunt and power of the 1037cc motor is irresistible for an exciting ride, while ensuring when two-up riding with luggage. The flexibility and good-behaviour, combined with power for adrenaline.
The V-Strom 1000 is driven by a powerful and versatile 90-degree, DOHC, V-Twin. The 101PS maximum output at 8,000rpm will give the rider an exciting riding experience, while the optimally weighted magneto and flywheel helps to produce a thick layer of torque of 101Nm as low as 4,000rpm, resulting in a tremendously usable character.
The V-Strom 1000 is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a Motion Track Brake System, Advanced Traction Control System, Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.
By adding the new design concept "Tough Gear" to the existing "Wild and Smart", the new V-Strom 1000 now has a updated look, mainly in the upper cowling, in kin to its 645cc brother bringing the V-Strom family together. Suzuki's original "Beak" style has been further emphasised by making it a straight line from the tip to the top of the tank, expressing the DNA from the DR-BIG and the desert racer DR-Z. The newly designed double stitched seat has a sense of quality, and the tandem area is parallel with the rear carrier providing a large flat space to securely strap large baggage when needed. Champion yellow is a new colour for the V-Strom 1000, relating to the off-road racing scene of Suzuki.
Conventional starter switches needed to be pressed by the rider until the engine starts, but the V-Strom 1000XT has adopted the Suzuki Easy Start System enabling the engine to start with one push of the button
Equipped with the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS), the clutch acts as a slipper clutch system when changing down rapidly, while always providing light use of the lever. SCAS is an advanced clutch system supporting sporty riding and less fatigue
