ANY TERRAIN | ANY HORIZON | ANY ADVENTURE.


The new V-Strom 1050DE is powered by the latest iteration of Suzuki’s distinctive, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, 90° V-Twin DOHC engine. The product of many years of development by a dedicated team of passionate engineers, this engine has long-enjoyed a reputation for delivering enjoyable character, power, reliability, and a great sound-track for your next adventure.


The V-Strom 1050DE takes advantage of wire-spoked wheels with aluminium rims to better endure the potential pounding when exploring trails and other rough surfaces. It also adopts a larger 21-inch front rim for greater stability and better control on gravel and flat dirt. Both wheels are shod with Dunlop TRAILMAX MIXTOUR tyres, which feature a semi-block tread pattern and custom-designed internal structure that delivers the solid traction and performance you want when exploring varied terrain and trails.


KYB inverted front forks with 43mm inner tubes deliver a smooth, controllable ride and feature stable damping characteristics well suited to adventure riding. Fully adjustable, they allow you to match settings to your preference or intended use. The link-type monoshock KYB rear suspension contributes to agility and stability, and its preload can be adjusted by simply turning the dial by hand. The V-Strom 1050DE suspension adopts a longer stroke, with 170mm of front and 169mm of rear travel. The suspension’s spring rate, valve, and piston settings are custom tuned for riding on unpaved surfaces.

Cruise control reduces fatigue when travelling long distances at constant speeds by letting you maintain a set speed without operating the throttle. The system allows settings when riding in 2nd gear or higher at engine speeds between 2,000rpm and 7,000rpm, which translates to vehicle speeds of roughly 15mph to 100mph. The handy resume function re-engages the system and returns to the most recent speed setting after cancelling.


Vehicle posture data from the 6 axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) is combined with front and rear wheel speed sensor data to allow ABS activation, even when leaning into corners. This helps maintain traction and lean angle so you can better trace your intended line through the corner. Integrating accelerometers and gyroscopes into a single compact package, the 6 axis Bosch IMU measures angular rate and acceleration to constantly monitor pitch, roll, and yaw movement.


By helping protect the frame and other vulnerable parts in the event the bike is dropped, the standard-fit engine bar lends the rider greater confidence when riding on gravel or dirt. It is also useful for mounting the Genuine Accessory fog lamp set or other accessories. The V-Strom 1050DE adopts a rugged aluminium engine sump guard protector to match its tough image. A USB port built into the left side of the dash cluster supplies power for recharging smartphones and there is also a 12V DC outlet under the seat to charging other items too. Knuckle covers enhance the adventure styling of the machine while offering added protection from the weather, as well as protection from flying stones. The standard fitment centre stand brings added convenience and practicality for use during maintenance, loading, or parking on loose surfaces.

Suzuki’s extensive collection of electronic rider aids were developed to assist and help you optimise performance, comfort and enjoyment to match your changing riding needs, preferences as well as difference weather and terrain. By making the V-Strom 1050DE feel more controllable, predictable, fun to use and less tiring to operate, these systems help you ride with greater satisfaction, confidence and peace of mind, whether touring for long distances, carrying gear, or leaving paved roads behind to explore new horizons and trails.


Designed to help prevent the rear wheel from slipping, this system reduces stress and fatigue while instilling greater confidence in controlling your ride. You can select from 3 modes to control how quickly the system takes effect and how proactive it is in limiting wheel spin, or you can opt to run with it turned off.

In addition to the 3 existing traction control modes or off, the V-Strom 1050DE features a new Gravel (G) mode setting that retards ignition timing and allows a limited amount of slip when riding on unpaved surfaces to help the rider better negotiate gravel roads.


This standard-equipment feature lets you shift up or down without operating the clutch lever. When activated, the system delivers clean, silky smooth upshifts with uninterrupted acceleration. Downshifts are also quick and smooth, thanks in part to automatic hands-free blipping and engine braking working together harmoniously.

Choose between three different power output characteristic modes to best match varying riding conditions or your preferences. While all three ultimately deliver maximum engine output, finer control over the level of throttle response and torque characteristics when accelerating empowers you to ride with greater confidence and pleasure.


The V-Strom 1050DE uses a new custom 5-inch colour TFT display that features clearly legible information displays. The high-quality display keeps you fully aware of all the bike’s systems and settings and supplies vital real time operating status information. The tachometer does double duty as a programmable rpm indicator light that blinks when the engine reaches a pre-set speed, and another new function displays large pop-up alerts and warnings. Manual or automatic switching settings for the day (white) and night (black) display modes let you maximise visibility at any hour and in any riding situation.


The DR-Z800 desert racer made design history when Suzuki entered it in the 1988 Paris-Dakar Rally, introducing a unique new concept to the rally scene that remains popular with motorcyclist today. The DR-Z was compact, light, and tough as nails. One of its most striking design elements was the radical new design expression of the prominent “beak” out front. As evidenced by its modern interpretation of the “beak” design, The new V-Strom 1050DE remains true to this heritage.


Vertically stacked rectangular LED headlights provide you with a clear view of the road ahead, while at the same time adding stylish flair to the face of the V-Strom 1050DE. Compact LED position lights, LED indicators and an LED tail light ensure clear visibility and practical durability.
