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.
As standard the V-Strom 1000 GTA is fitted with genuine 3 piece aluminium luggage for the ultimate adventure, including a top case (38L capacity), and side cases (37L capacity each case).
Optimally Balanced Frame
The V-Strom 1000 is built on a slim, twin-spar aluminium frame, providing a smooth ride, and a sporty riding experience when pushed hard, and also contributing to fuel economy thanks to its light weight structure. The aluminium swingarm is set to a length to provide straight line stability and cornering stability at a high level. The bike feels reassuringly steady at high speeds even when it’s fully loaded with luggage and a pillion.
Suspension and Wheels
A 19 inch wheel on the front and 17 on the rear provides a premium balance of stability and nimbleness to cope well with all riding situations. The V-Strom 1000 uses light weight 10 spoke aluminium cast wheels. Black anodised 43mm inverted front forks and a dial adjustable rear shock absorber help to ensure great road holding and a smooth, comfortable ride even with a passenger and a full complement of luggage. Both front and rear suspensions are fully adjustable enabling the rider to maximise the feel to match any situation.
The effective windscreen on the V-Strom 1000 uses a ratchet gear mechanism allowing the rider to easily choose from three angles. No tools are necessary and the ideal position can be selected by simply pushing the windscreen by one hand, even with gloves on. The height of the screen can also be set to three pre-set positions using four bolts. The new screen has an improved design 49mm taller and with a smaller curve on the tip section, resulting in less wind blast, turbulence, noise to the helmet, and a clearer view.
Advanced Rider Technology
The V-Strom 1000 is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a Motion Track Brake System¹, Advanced Traction Control System², Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.
