A new 776cc parallel-twin engine features a 270-degree crankshaft design, which delivers a smooth ride with plenty of torque, positive traction, and a pleasing rumble. It also introduces the Suzuki Cross Balancer, an innovative new primary balancer design that contributes to smooth operation and helps achieve a compact and lightweight package that enhances the V-STROM 800DE’s nimble handling.
Euro 5-certifed engine, is cleaner, smoother and has a maximum output of 62kW (83hp) at 8500rpm and peak torque of 78Nm at 6800rpm.
In developing the styling for the new V-STROM 800DE, Suzuki’s design team set out to carry on the tradition of the V-STROM series. Their goal was to convey a thoroughly modern look in line with current trends, while breaking new ground that puts it ahead of the pack.
Staying true to its Dr. BIG heritage, the model’s characteristic feature is undoubtedly the latest evolution of the radical new “beak” front end that became a cult classic in the motorcycling world after its debut in 1988 on the DR- Z 800 desert racer.
In keeping with the goal of creating a new look that speaks of all-round capabilities, the new, sharper beak is positioned higher to create greater distance between it and the front wheel, thereby visually conveying the extended suspension stroke and the model’s ability to handle gravel roads and flat trails. The beak and other elements of the front end, including the new vertically stacked hexagonal LED headlight assembly, are designed to look slim, light and compact. This once again reflects the V-STROM 800DE’s ability to excel when exploring further off the beaten track.
Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S)
The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) features a collection of advanced electronic rider assist systems. The rider can freely choose the settings for each system to best suit their level of skill and experience, and to optimize performance characteristics for the riding conditions and road surface at any given moment. These settings in turn help make the V-STROM 800DE more controllable, predictable, and less tiring to operate. This is true even when riding with the optional side and top cases attached, when touring for long distances, and when leaving paved roads behind to explore rural trails. With each system designed and thoroughly tested to operate the way the rider expects. S.I.R.S. helps realize a more exciting riding experience that inspires confidence and frees riders to concentrate on enjoying their adventures.
The robust collection of advanced S.I.R.S. electronic systems employed by the V-STROM 800DE include the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), Suzuki Traction Control System (STSC) with G (Gravel) mode, Ride-by-Wire Electronic Throttle System, Bi-directional Quick Shift System, Suzuki Easy Start System, and Low RPM Assist.
