More than a decade ago, Suzuki developed the V-Strom 650. The motorcycle offered incredible versatility, comfort, and a fun to ride character.
The well-balanced package included an incredibly versatile V-twin engine and lightweight aluminum chassis. Sharing the spirit of the globally successful V-Strom 650 ABS, the all-new, V-Strom 1000 will deliver fun, excitement and versatility to the open class rider who seeks a new world of motorcycling adventure.
Strong, rider-friendly Engine:
A totally redesigned, liquid-cooled 1000cc V-twin engine produces effortless acceleration along with a strong V-twin rumble.
Lightweight, well-balanced Chassis:
Slim and lightweight aluminum frame, thickly padded seat and an adjustable windscreen provides an easy, comfortable, and fun to ride character.
Brake and Suspension:
Performance-inspired radial mount front brake caliper with Antilock Brake System provides riders confidence in braking on various road conditions. The V-Strom 1000 ABS also features an inverted front fork and an easy to adjust single shock style rear suspension.
Distinctive Styling Design:
Inspired by the 1988 DR750S—Suzuki’s first big on/off-road machine—the V-Strom 1000 features bold and distinctive styling to create an unmatched presence.
Advanced Traction Control System:
Suzuki’s advanced traction control system is equipped for enhanced sport riding, performance, and the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence.
An all new luggage system was designed and tested in harmony with the big V-Strom’s overall development. The luggage system provides easy installation, a narrow overall width when installed, and a clean look when detached.
