ADVANCED RIDER TECHNOLOGY
The V-Strom 1000XT is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a Motion Track Brake System, Advanced Traction Control System, Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.
The V-Strom 1000XT is driven by a powerful and versatile 90-degree, DOHC, V-Twin. The strong, rider-friendly nature of this engine gives effortless acceleration no matter what the riding situation or the presence of a pillion rider.
The 101PS maximum output at 8,000rpm will give the rider an exciting riding experience.
By adding the new design concept “Tough Gear” to the existing “Wild and Smart”, the new V-Strom 1000XT now has an updated look, mainly in the upper cowling, in kin to its 645cc brother bringing the V-Strom family together. Suzuki’s original “Beak” style has been further emphasised by making it a straight line from the tip to the top of the tank, expressing the DNA from the DR-BIG and the desert racer DR-Z.
The newly designed double stitched seat has a sense of quality, and the tandem area is parallel with the rear carrier providing a large flat space to securely strap large baggage when needed. Champion yellow is a new colour for the V-Strom 1000XT, relating to the off-road racing scene of Suzuki.
The four-stroke, liquid cooled, DOHC, 1037cc 90-degree V-Twin engine is designed to perform optimally on various roads that riders will face during long distance touring. Supported by the plush torque which reaches its maximum at only 4000 rpm, this extremely usable and flexible engine will support the rider to enjoy situations such as congested city roads, stone-paved roads, highways, rural roads, and winding passes.
With a unique capacity of 1037cc, the V-Strom 1000XT has achieved an optimum balance of plentiful power and a light weight character. The light weight contributes to the ease of manoeuvrability and a sportier ride while also supporting low fuel consumption. Touring with 1200cc adventure models will make the rider realise not only that the V-Strom 1000XT has no difficulty managing the pace, but also the advantages of its light weight character.
Equipped with the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS), the clutch acts as a slipper clutch system when changing down rapidly, while always providing light use of the lever. SCAS is an advanced clutch system supporting both sporty riding and less fatigue on long rides.
The V-Strom 1000XT is built on a slim, twin-spar aluminium frame, providing a smooth ride, and a sporty riding experience when pushed hard. 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.
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 1000XT adopts tubeless tyres with wire-spoke wheels. The wire-spoke wheels absorb shock from the road better due to the flexible character of spokes, and resulting in a softer riding feel, providing the rider with further comfort and exhilarated riding pleasure. Black anodised 43mm inverted front forks and a dial adjustable rear shock absorber help to ensure great road holding and a smooth, comfortable ride.
Reducing the wind blast to the hands of the rider and providing comfort especially in the rain or cold weather, the once optional Knuckle Covers are now standard to support harsh condition riding. Comfort and accurate control to the levers shall further improve by installing the optional Grip Heaters for long distance rides in severe conditions. The Under Cowling is also standard to give the rider that extra adventure feel.
