Powered by Suzuki’s highly acclaimed 1037cc, 90° V-twin, DOHC engine which has further evolved for MY20, boasting increased top-end power whilst also conforming to Euro 5 emissions standards.
Thanks to new camshaft profiles and timing, peak horsepower has increased considerably from 74kW / 8,000rpm to 79kW / 8,500rpm (106hp).
The highly refined engine begins with a deep rumble low in the rpm range, then progresses through the mid-range along a strong and linear torque curve then keeps building through the high rpm range in a smooth yet enjoyable manner.
[A] Motion Track Brake System
This updated system combines information of the posture of the vehicle with the front and rear wheel speeds. This allows the ABS to activate not only in a straight line but also when the vehicle is leaning.
[B] Hill Hold Control System
Automatically applies the rear brake when the motorcycle is stopped on an upward slope to prevent rollback when the brakes and clutch are released.
[C] Slope Dependent Control
Constantly monitors posture and if required controls brake pressure to prevent rear wheel lift during downhill braking.
The V-STROM 1050 model is equipped with 10-spoke aluminium cast wheels.
Full LCD Screen
Presents all required information using a clean and intuitive layout with information displayed in order of priority.
The new headlight produces bright light that clearly illuminates road surfaces and shoulders for excellent visibility.

New tapered handlebars are constructed from aluminium to reduce weight whilst maintaining high rigidity.
The seat can easily be adjusted 20mm higher than the standard position to suit taller riders.
Protect the rider’s hands from wind, rain, and flying stones.
The screen can be finely adjusted without tools to within a 50mm vertical range to one of 11 notch positions.
The new high-performance 6-direction IMU from Bosch combines a 3-axis angle rate sensor (gyrometer) and a 3-axis acceleration sensor in a single compact unit.
The factory-fitted centre stand is light and offers excellent front/rear balance, making it convenient for use during maintenance or when loading baggage.
