Go beyond your boundaries and dive into your next adventure with the V-Strom. With a sleek look and features that make for a smooth and comfortable ride, you can continue your adventure without pause. Distinctive styling incorporates elements of both Suzuki’s legendary DR-Z Dakar racer and the large Dual Sport DR-Big. The distinctive beak design first adopted by Suzuki stays true to its heritage while being more aggressive and bolder for this generation of 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 excellent fuel economy while complying with emissions standards worldwide. The camshafts and pistons are fed by a pair of large, 49mm, Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle bodies that deliver smooth, light, and precise throttle grip action. With four modes of adjustment, an updated Traction Control System is joined by a new Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) that lets the rider choose from three different engine power delivery characteristics. Regardless of weather conditions, the Suzuki Easy Start System fires the V-Strom’s engine up with just a momentary press of the starter button. In addition, Suzuki’s Low RPM Assist system returns, making it easier for a V-Strom rider to avoid stalling the engine when pulling away from a stop or maneuvering through heavy traffic.
The V-Strom’s durable, twin-spar aluminum frame balances weight and rigidity for optimal handling on all types of roads. A single rear shock controls the cast aluminum swingarm with remote, hydraulic spring preload adjustment, so adjusting for cargo or a passenger takes just seconds. In addition, the inverted KYB fork has spring preload adjustment plus compression and rebounds 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. Like every V-Strom before it, the style, performance, and value of 2020 V-Strom 1050 will be instantly recognized by experienced and enthusiastic riders.
