What Real Living Feels Like
Since its inception in 2002, the V-STROM brand has attracted massive global fan-fare by providing owners with consummate comfort, convenience, reliability and enjoyment for money.
The latest generation V-STROM model line-up; the V-STROM 1050 and flagship V-STROM 1050DE convey Suzuki’s commitment to satisfying the needs of modern adventure riders, who want motorcycles built to take them wherever they wish to go.
In contrast, the V-STROM 1050DE introduces several new features aimed at optimising performance on unpaved surfaces. These include the adoption of a 21-inch wire-spoked wheel, longer rake and wheelbase enhancing controllability on gravel and flat dirt, increased suspension travel for better bump absorption, wider handlebars, wider steel footpegs, aluminium engine protection and an accessory bar as standard equipment. Also newly introduced Gravel [G] mode to the Suzuki Traction Control System and the ability to switch OFF rear ABS.
An engine that aims to please
Suzuki’s highly acclaimed 1,037cc, 90° V-twin, DOHC engine features strong linear torque in the mid RPM range, and free-revving nature that maximises power output in the high RPM range.
The outstanding characteristics of a 90° V-twin engine make it the perfect fit for the V-STROM 1050. Its design provides perfect primary balance, with each of the two cylinders cancelling each out the vibration of the other. This eliminates the need for any balancer shafts, preventing the mechanical losses associated with them, and this connects to improving thermal efficiency for higher power output.
The layout of the V-twin engine allows for a slimmer chassis design with a lower centre of gravity, contributing to nimbler handling and greater manoeuvrability.
