Every day commuting, rough and wet conditions, B-Road twisties, long highway stretches, two-up comfort, the tool that never lets you down. Think of a task, a challenge, an adventure. The answer to every thought. V-Strom 1000.
You’ve got the power, anywhere, anytime. Slim and light, the powerful V-Twin unit will always provide the necessary amount of drive no matter what the situation. The grunt and power of the 1037cc motor is irresistible for an exciting ride, while ensuring when two-up riding with luggage. The flexibility and good-behaviour is combined with power for adrenaline.
Available in the following colours
ADVANCED RIDER TECHNOLOGY
The V-Strom 1000 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.
By adding the new design concept “Tough Gear” to the existing “Wild and Smart”, the new V-Strom 1000 now has a 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.
CLEAN AND CLEAR
The easy to see and easy to operate/understand instrument cluster provides rich information to the rider. It incorporates a big analogue tachometer and large digital readouts for the gear position and speedometer.
The digital section below displays the odometer, twin-trip meter, clock, fuel level, coolant temperature, ambient temperature, battery voltage, range on remaining fuel, average and instantaneous fuel consumptions, and traction-control modes.
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 1000 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 1000 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.
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.
The radial mounted four piston monobloc Tokico brake calipers and twin 310mm diameter discs on the front, and a 260mm diameter single disc with a single piston caliper on the rear, provide strong and controllable braking performance. The Bosch ABS system has been upgraded to the “Motion Track Brake System¹” by installing a 5-Axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), and by combining the information of the posture of the vehicle with the front and rear wheel speeds, riders benefit from optimal vehicle stability, not only in straight line braking but also when braking while cornering.
This system enables the rider to control the throttle with more confidence in difficult riding situations such as stone paved roads, two-up riding or when with a heavy load to minimise the stress and/or fatigue on long distance rides. The traction control system continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speeds, throttle position, crank position, and gear position with various sensors, and controls the engine output by managing the ignition timing and air delivery. The traction control system can be switched to either of two modes, or off.
By adopting the new Low RPM assist system, the concern of an unexpected engine stall has been relieved. This system will automatically raise the idle speed when engaging the clutch or when riding at low rpms, assisting frequent clutch work in congested town rides and preventing sudden engine stall sometimes known to happen when running large capacity twins in the low rpm range.
