    Default EICMA 2019: 2020 Suzuki V-Strom 1050 and 1050 XT unveiled!

    Suzuki has used the EICMA as a platform to showcase the new 2020 V-Strom 1050. An evolution over the previous generation and an ode to the 1988 DR750S, the 2020 Suzuki V-Strom 1050 is a perfect amalgamation of the past and the future of an iconic brand!

    Press Release:

    The product concept for the V-STROM 1050 is “The Master of Adventure.” Suzuki engineered the model as a Sports Adventure Tourer that offers comforts in various riding situations expected in a long-distance motorcycle touring. Riders always want to ride to many different places. Riders dream easier operation in mountain roads. Such riders’ wishes and demands are reflected in the model’s development.

    The 1,037cc V-twin engine meets the Euro5 emission control standards (for European specification), newly introduced in Europe from January 2020. The new model features ride-by-wire electronic throttle control system and adjusts intake and exhaust cam profile to realise the best mix for balancing both higher power and lower fuel consumption.

    Rider usability and convenience are enhanced with the newly-installed S.I.R.S (Suzuki Intelligent Ride System), which works for various riding scenes with electronic control systems including SDMS (Suzuki Drive Mode Selector) with three different output modes, and traction control system also with three modes selection.

    The styling design is inspired by Suzuki’s adventure bike, the 1988 DR750S. Applying a more modern look, silhouette further provides a more aggressive and bold image as the sports adventure tourer. As standard, the key features include height-adjustable windscreen and aluminium tapered handlebars, enhancing the off-road style image.

    Plus, for the V-STROM 1050XT, additional functions such as cruise control system, hill hold control system, and systems that control braking depending on downhill and load conditions are newly installed. In addition to the wire-spoked wheel rims and knuckle covers, V-STROM 1050XT also comes with aluminium under the cowling, accessory bar, centre stand, LED turn signals, seat height adjustment, and 12V DC socket as standard equipment.

    For its body colour, HERITAGE SPECIAL, which resembles the DR-Z, the 1988 Paris-Dakar Rally machine based on the DR750S, is available in its lineup.

    The all-new V-STROM 1050 and V-STROM 1050XT will be manufactured at the Hamamatsu Plant in Japan and are planned to be distributed worldwide including Europe and North America from the beginning of 2020.
