Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S)

The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S) includes the Motion Track Brake System, Hill Hold Control System, Slope Dependent Control System and Load Dependent Control System that assist in braking, and the Cruise Control System, Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS), and Traction Control System that assist in driving. The system provides users with intelligent controls to enhance ease of use and convenience in touring and daily life.

000Hill Hold Control System

When the vehicle stops on an upward slope and applies the brakes, this system automatically operates the rear brake for around 30 seconds to prevent the vehicle from backing down the hill even if the rider releases the brake lever/pedal. This allows the rider to focus on a smooth start on a hill.

Operating conditions:

1. When hill-hold mode is ON.

2. When stopped completely on an incline.

3. When the gear is not in the “N” position.

4. When the side stand is stowed.

5. When the brakes are applied.


000Slope Dependent Control System

The Slope Dependent Control System constantly monitors the posture of the vehicle even when the vehicle is traveling downhill. When the rider operates the brake lever or pedal on a downhill, the electronic control unit controls brake pressure to prevent rear wheel lift.

000Load Dependent Control System

This system supports optimal braking in response to load conditions. The system constantly learns changes in the braking deceleration through the input of hydraulic pressure as the load increases or decreases when riding with a load or in tandem.

000Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS)*

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector is a system that allows the rider to select from three different output characteristic modes (A, B, and C).

*Not available for 35kw specs.

000Traction Control System

An updated traction control system is used to let the rider be in control with more confidence in diverse conditions with less stress and fatigue. The traction control mode is increased to three modes plus off mode for diverse road conditions, or to match the rider’s preference more. The traction control system continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speed, throttle position, crank position and gear position. When wheel spin is detected, the system quickly controls power output by managing ignition timing and air delivery.

Note: Traction control system is not a substitute for rider’s throttle control under the various conditions, and traction control cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when entering turns, or while braking, and it does not control front wheel traction.


Ride-by-wire Electronic Throttle System

Much simpler, lighter and more compact than the previous mechanical throttle. There are no mechanical cables used and one is independently installed to both the front and rear cylinder. Ride-by-wire electronic throttle control system offers a light feeling of control that is natural and linear like a conventional throttle.



The inertial measurement unit (IMU) works on 6-direction along 3-axis rather than the 5-axis of the previous system. This allows it to detect pitch, roll, and yaw movement based on the angular rate and acceleration. The high-performance 6-directions IMU from Bosch combines a 3-axis angular rate sensor (gyrometer) and a 3-axis acceleration sensor in a single compact unit.

000Cruise Control System

The newly equipped cruise control system maintains the set speed without the rider having to operate the throttle-a feature for long-distance touring that helps reduce rider fatigue. The model features a range of technology such as ride-by-wire throttle system and the newly programmed ECM, which result in an easy-to-use cruise control. Crusing speed can be set from approximately 50km/h to 160km/h at fourth gear or above. A switch on the right handlebars can be pressed to put cruise control into standby, and a selector switch (up/down) on the left handlebars allows the rider to adjust the speed.

000Motion Track Brake System

The updated Motion Track Brake 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.

Note: ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. Please always ride at a safe speed for road and weather conditions, including while cornering.


New Styling

The distinctive styling incorporates elements of both Suzuki’s legendary DR-Z desert racer and the large off-road model DR-BIG. The characteristic beak design first adopted by Suzuki stays true to Suzuki’s heritage while also further evolving the design to be more aggressive and bolder for the new generation V-STROM.

Designing the V-STROM 1050/XT

There is a new design featuring a vertically stacked headlight with a unique rectangular shape. The headlight clearly illuminates the road surfaces and shoulders for excellent visibility. The headlight unit is lightweight for excellent balance with the overall weight of the vehicle. This model is equipped with aluminum tapered handlebars. The shape enhances the off-road style feel and is lightweight while maintaining high rigidity. The cylinder head, magneto cover, water pump case and clutch covers are finished with a bronze color for a beautiful contrast with the black engine body.

V-twin engine keeps evolving.

The Refined V-Twin Engine

The liquid-cooled, DOHC, 1037cm3 90° V-twin engine further evolved. It meets new Euro 5 emission control standards while achieving high power of 79.0kW / 8,500rpm while maintaining low fuel consumption (4.9L / 100km). Also, a 35kW version has been added for the European Driving License Directive. The engine delivers deep rumble in the low rpm range, strong and linear torque in the mid-range and a maximum horsepower in the high rpm range with a smooth run up. This refined engine will support the rider to enjoy various situations such as city and rural roads, winding passes, flat dirt roads and highways.

Note: Actual fuel economy may differ owing to differences in conditions such as the weather, road, rider behavior and maintenance.

Low RPM Assist

The Low RPM assist system monitors and automatically raise the idle speed when taking off from a stop or when riding slowly. Using the electronic throttle, a even finer level control is made possible. The system makes it easier for the rider to pull away from a standstill or maneuver in heavy traffic or through a crowded parking lot.


Suzuki Easy Start System

The Suzuki Easy Start System allows the rider to easily start the engine with a single press of the starter button in any weather conditions or engine state—whether cold or hot. There is no need to continue to press the starter button until the starter ignites and turns the engine.


Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS)

The Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) works as an assist clutch to make the lever easier to pull while transmitting the power output, reducing fatigue on long touring.


Dual Spark Technology

Each cylinder head is equipped with two iridium spark plugs. The ignition timing is controlled independently contributing to high combustion efficiency, higher power output, a more linear throttle response, easier engine startup and a more stable idle.



Electronical Throttle Body

Now, ride-by-wire throttle system is simpler, lighter and more compact than the previous model, with a larger bore (49mm compared to 45mm of the previous model). The throttle body is independently installed to both the front and rear cylinder. Each throttle body has a single butterfly valve, allowing each to be opened and closed using its own independent motor for precise control.



The newly programed ECM (Engine Control Module) provides state-of-the-art engine management and has optimized settings to meet Euro 5 regulations.



Camshafts and Cam-timing

Both the exhaust and intake cam profile are changed so that  the amount of lift is increased and the cam-timing has been set with less overlap. This provides better combustion efficiency and contributes to higher power output and low fuel consumption.


Liquid-cooled Oil Cooler

Uses a new liquid-cooled oil cooler. Located where the oil filter is attached, it takes up less space and is both lightweight and compact. The liquid-cooled oil cooler provides flawless lubrication for a more powerful engine.
