Designing the V-STROM 1050
There is a new design featuring a vertically stacked headlight with a unique rectangular shape. The headlight clearly illuminates the road surfaces and shoulders for excellent visibility. The headlight unit is lightweight for excellent balance with the overall weight of the vehicle. The new model is equipped with aluminum tapered handlebars. The shape enhances the off-road style feel and is lightweight while maintaining high rigidity. The cylinder head, magneto cover, water pump case and clutch covers are finished with a bronze color for a beautiful contrast with the black engine body.

POWERFUL V-TWIN ENGINE
V-twin engine keeps evolving.
The Refined V-Twin Engine
The liquid-cooled, DOHC, 1037cm3 90° V-twin engine further evolved. It meets new Euro 5 emission control standards while achieving high power of 79.0kW / 8,500rpm while maintaining low fuel consumption (4.9L / 100km). Also, a 35kW version has been added for the European Driving License Directive. The engine delivers deep rumble in the low rpm range, strong and linear torque in the mid-range and a maximum horsepower in the high rpm range with a smooth run up. This refined engine will support the rider to enjoy various situations such as city and rural roads, winding passes, flat dirt roads and highways.
Note: Actual fuel economy may differ owing to differences in conditions such as the weather, road, rider behavior and maintenance.
Low RPM Assist
The Low RPM assist system monitors and automatically raise the idle speed when taking off from a stop or when riding slowly. Using the electronic throttle, a even finer level control is made possible. The system makes it easier for the rider to pull away from a standstill or maneuver in heavy traffic or through a crowded parking lot.
Suzuki Easy Start System
The Suzuki Easy Start System allows the rider to easily start the engine with a single press of the starter button in any weather conditions or engine state—whether cold or hot. There is no need to continue to press the starter button until the starter ignites and turns the engine.
Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS)
The Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) works as an assist clutch to make the lever easier to pull while transmitting the power output, reducing fatigue on long touring.
Dual Spark Technology
Each cylinder head is equipped with two iridium spark plugs. The ignition timing is controlled independently contributing to high combustion efficiency, higher power output, a more linear throttle response, easier engine startup and a more stable idle.
Electronical Throttle Body
Now, ride-by-wire throttle system is simpler, lighter and more compact than the previous model, with a larger bore (49mm compared to 45mm of the previous model). The throttle body is independently installed to both the front and rear cylinder. Each throttle body has a single butterfly valve, allowing each to be opened and closed using its own independent motor for precise control.
The newly programed ECM (Engine Control Module) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has optimized settings to meet Euro 5 regulations.
Camshafts and Cam-timing
Both the exhaust and intake cam profile are changed so that the amount of lift is increased and the cam-timing has been set with less overlap. This provides better combustion efficiency and contributes to higher power output and low fuel consumption.
Liquid-cooled Oil Cooler
Uses a new liquid-cooled oil cooler. Located where the oil filter is attached, it takes up less space and is both lightweight and compact. The liquid-cooled oil cooler provides flawless lubrication for a more powerful engine.

Multi-function Instrument Cluster
The instrument panel presents all required information on a full LCD screen using a clean and intuitive layout with information displayed in order of priority. Included in the display are the speedometer, tachometer (full pixel digital display), gear position indicator, odometer, trip meter (A, B), instantaneous fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, driving range, fuel level indicator, engine coolant temperature indicator, ambient air temperature indicator, clock, voltage meter, service reminder, SDMS mode, traction control mode, cruise control indicator, ABS mode, hill hold indicator, engine rpm indicator light, freeze indicator light, turn signal indicator light, high beam indicator light, traction control indicator light, ABS indicator light, and neutral indicator light.
Adjustable Suspension with Excellent Wheel Selection
With an inner tube diameter of only 43mm, the spring preload and compression/rebound damping of the KYB inverted front forks can be fully adjusted, allowing the suspension to be set based on the preference of the rider or the usage conditions. The rear suspension is a bottom link type mono-shock, and the preload can be adjusted simply by turning the dial by hand. The V-STROM 1050XT model uses DID aluminum wire-spoked wheel rims, while the V-STROM1050 model is equipped with 10-spoke aluminum cast wheels. Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A41 tires are standard equipped with a 110/80R19 radial tire on the front and 150/70R17 on the rear.
Exclusive Equipments Only for V-STROM 1050XT
V-STROM 1050XT is standard equipped with special parts such as an aluminum under cowling, accessory bar, knuckle cover, LED turn signals and center stand. The seat has a front/rear segmented design, and the rider seat can be easily adjusted 20mm higher than the standard position. The windscreen height can be adjusted without any tools. A 12V DC socket is equipped under pillion rider seat. This convenient outlet can be used to charge or power a range of electrical devices.
*In order to prevent draining the battery, do not use the outlet during an engine stop. Please make sure to keep at 12W or less during idling.
Durable Twin-spar Aluminum Frame
The lightweight cast aluminum twin-spar frame realizes the optimal rigidity balance for stability and handling performance. The swingarm is also aluminum supporting the balance and light handling.
A USB port is located left side of the meter panel. It can be used as a power source for a smartphone, navigation system, or other similar device.
*In order to prevent draining the battery, do not use during an engine stop. Please refer to the owner’s manual for other usage conditions.
The windscreen reduces
fatigue when riding at high
speeds. Height is adjustable
on the V-STROM 1050XT without any tools.
The seat has a front/rear separate design and is just the right firmness to provide a comfortable ride with less fatigue even on long rides. The height of the rider’s seat can be adjusted 20mm higher on the V-STROM 1050XT.
Aluminum Tapered Handlebars
The new model is equipped with aluminum tapered handlebars. The shape enhances the off-road style feel.
