Escape the everyday and go out in the wild. Take the adventurous spirit of the new generation V-Strom 1050XT with its intelligent functionality you have unlimited potential to explore. Go beyond your boundaries and dive into your next adventure.
The V-Strom 1050XT sits at the top pf the V-Strom range and comes highly equipped as standard. As well as its spoked wheels and a complete array of electronic rider aids it’s also fitted with an aluminium under cowling, lower accessory bar, LED turn signals, knuckle covers, adjustable screen, adjustable seat, centre stand and 12V DC socket.
The V-Stroms lightweight and compact chassis is as important as its V-Twin engine when it comes to defining its character. Slim, even with a practical 20 litre fuel tank, it allows the rider to easily place their feet on the floor when stationary. It’s design also means an agile and stable adventure bike, which can cover motorway miles with ease while also comfortably negotiating twisty mountain passes and hairpin bends.
The seat is height adjustable on the V-Strom 1050XT, allowing riders to tailor their bike to suit. There are two positions, ranging from 850-870mm. The seat is also well cushioned for comfort, while maintaining support. Almost no clearance is created with the fuel tank when set at the high position, maintaining the continuity of the styling. A 30mm lower accessory option is also available.
The screen shape and size has been defined by extensive wind tunnel testing. The height can be adjusted to suit the rider’s stature or preferences adjustable by 50mm to one of 11 positions. The V-Strom 1050XT screen is adjusted by hand using a quick release handle toward the front, lower section of the screen, with no tools required.
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 easy access dial by hand. The Tokico monobloc front brake calipers are mounted radially and offer strong braking performance and control. Features two 310mm floating discs, 5mm thick and made from stainless steel. The rear brake has a 38mm single piston pin-slide caliper and 260mm disc.
The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS) is a complete package of modern rider aids to help support your riding adventures. The system incorporates the Motion Track Brake System, Hill Hold Control System, Slope Dependent Control System, Load Dependent Control System, Cruise Control System, Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS) and a Traction Control System. The systems are powered by a new ride-by-wire throttle and a 6 direction 3 axis IMU sensor to provide riders with intelligent controls to enhance ease of use, convenience, comfort and enjoyment.
