Suzuki introduced 2020 V-STROM 1050 with updated electronics, more power and more gadgets.
Distinctive styling incorporates elements of both Suzuki’s legendary DR-Z Dakar racer and the large DualSport DR-Big. The characteristic beak design first adopted by Suzuki stays true to its heritage while being more aggressive and bolder for the new generation V-STROM.
The V-STROM’s 1037cc, 90-degree V-twin engine has more peak power than ever before while maintaining its strong pull off the bottom and fuel economy while complying with emissions standards worldwide. The new Motor produces 106.0bhp @ 8500rpm and 73.8 lb-ft @ 6000rpm.
The V-STROM features twin-spar aluminum frame. The cast aluminum swingarm is controlled by a single rear shock with remote, hydraulic spring preload adjustment. Up front, the inverted KYB fork has spring preload adjustment plus both compression and rebound damping force adjustment for easy tuning. In popular 19- and 17-inch sizes, Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A41 tires are fitted to the V-STROM’s 10-spoke, cast aluminum wheels.
The three-way height-adjustable windscreen was wind-tunnel tested to reduce wind sounds, buffeting, and rider fatigue.
An all-new, multifunction instrument panel presents all required information on a full LCD screen using a clean and intuitive layout with information displayed in order of priority.
