Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.)
Suzuki's robust collection of our latest electronic systems were developed to assist and help you optimize performance characteristics to match your changing riding needs and preferences. By making the V-STROM 1050/DE feel more controllable, predictable and less tiring to operate, these systems help you ride with greater confidence and peace of mind, whether touring for long distances, carrying gear, or leaving paved roads behind to explore rural trails.
6-axis IMU
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. This helps realize several of the latest S.I.R.S. electronic control systems.
G (Gravel) mode (V-STROM 1050DE only)
In addition to the 3 existing traction control modes (+ OFF), the V-STROM 1050DE features a new G (Gravel) 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.
Note: Because G (Gravel) mode allows a certain amount of rear tyre slip, it is not suitable for use on paved surfaces.
Rear ABS Off mode (V-STROM 1050DE only)
The V-STROM 1050DE adds the ability to switch off rear ABS for improved controllability on gravel and other unpaved surfaces. In addition, the Motion Track Brake System has been optimized for the larger front wheel, different chassis geometry and increased suspension travel.
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.
Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS)
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.
Note: The traction control system is not a substitute for the rider's throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
Motion Track Brake System
Vehicle posture data from the 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. Mode 1 provides minimal intervention, while Mode 2 intervenes more proactively.
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.
Bi-directional Quick Shift System
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.
Cruise Control System
Cruise control reduces fatigue when travelling long distances at constant speeds by letting you maintain a set speed without operating the throttle. The system now 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 25km/h to 160km/h. The handy resume function re-engages the system and returns to the most recent speed setting after cancelling.
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS)
Freely 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.
Hill Hold Control System
This system automatically engages the rear brake for 30 seconds after coming to a stop while facing uphill on an incline, even when you release the brake lever or pedal. This helps ensure a smother restart free of worries that the bike will roll backward.
Load Dependent Control System
This system recognizes changes in the load conditions of any given moment and responds by automatically adjusting brake pressure to provide stable braking regardless of the load you are carrying.
Slope Dependent Control System
While constantly monitoring the motorcycle's posture and angle, the system controls brake pressure to prevent rear wheel lift and help achieve confident braking, even riding downhill.
Ride-by-wire Electronic Throttle System
This cable-free system leverages the onboard ECM to finely control the relationship between throttle action and engine output characteristics. Individual settings are tuned to match each of the SDMS modes and throttle grip action is optimized, particularly when first opening the throttle, to improve controllability and provide faithful response, especially when riding on gravel roads.
Suzuki Easy Start System
One quick press of a button lets you start the engine without pulling in the clutch lever. As a function used on every outing, Easy Start makes your riding experience all the more pleasurable and convenient.
Low RPM Assist
By helping maintain engine idle speed for smoother and easier starts, this function helps you operate and control the bike more easily in stop-and-go traffic.
Design is in our DNA
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 motorcycle enthusiasts today. The DR-Z was compact, light and tough as nails. One of its most striking design elements had to be 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 1050/DE remains true to this heritage of Suzuki design DNA.
New V-STROM 1050/DE – The timeless virtue of fine design heritage
In marking the 20th anniversary of the popular series, the V-STROM 1050/DE evolves to deliver even greater freedom to explore all the excitement adventure touring has to offer, whether on the road or heading off to explore wilderness trails. In terms of design, this thoroughly modern interpretation of Suzuki's legendary DR-Z achieves a more aggressive yet sophisticated look with its straighter, sharper lines.

Proven Twin-Spar Alloy Frame
The pursuit of building top-performing aluminium frames has been an integral part of Suzuki's engineering DNA for decades, and the frame for the V-STROM 1050/DE remains true to this heritage.
It incorporates aluminium castings and extruded aluminium sections to lend the right amount of suppleness and strength to an overall rigid alloy structure. It also features updated seat rails that better support the input load from unpaved surfaces. The result is a trim, light and strong frame of tried and proven reliability that delivers excellent straight-line stability, handles brilliantly and is easy to manoeuvre, wherever your journey takes you.
Optimized Suspension
KYB inverted front forks with 43mm inner tubes deliver a smooth, controllable ride and feature stable damping characteristics well suited to adventure touring. 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.
Reliable Stopping Power
A pair of Tokico radial mount monobloc callipers, each with four opposed pistons, act on 310mm floating-mount discs to provide sure stopping power in the front. These work in conjunction with the rear disc brake as part of the antilock braking system (ABS) that helps prevent the wheels from locking up for more stable braking.
The V-STROM 1050 windscreen's shape and size are designed to maximize comfort when touring for long distances. It features 50mm of vertical adjustment performed using a quick release handle. The V-STROM 1050DE adopts a smaller smoke-tinted windscreen designed to maximize visibility on country trails. Both windscreens were tested extensively to ensure they effectively cut wind noise and prevent buffeting for a more comfortable and less tiring riding experience.
Tapered Aluminium Handlebars
The tapered aluminium handlebars for the V-STROM 1050/DE are shaped to be comfortable to hold and engineered to offer the right degree of rigidity and optimal grip width to provide positive control, whether riding on or off paved roads. The V-STROM 1050DE handlebars use thicker tubing and a softer grade aluminium so they flex just the right amount and better absorb bumps to make exciting runs on rough ground easier on your hands and arms. They also feature an even wider grip that enhances controllability, particularly when standing on the pegs to negotiate rough surfaces.
Comfortable, durable Seat
The V-STROM 1050 features an independent rider and pillion seat design that is both visually appealing and achieves the right level of firmness to provide plenty of comfort with less fatigue on long rides. The rider seat height can be raised 20mm using an included height riser stored beneath the pillion seat.
The V-STROM 1050DE adopts a fixed-height seat design that reduces weight while also achieving greater rigidity. This durable seat better stands up to input load when riding on unpaved surfaces, as well as to weight shifts as you change position to master the terrain.
Optional higher and lower seats are also available as genuine Suzuki accessories.
Wheels and Tyres with Purpose
The V-STROM 1050 rides on 10-spoke cast aluminium wheels shod with Bridgestone BATTLAX ADVENTURE A41 radial tyres. The 110/80R19 front and 150/70R17 rear tyres contribute to nimble handling and positive grip, whether the road surface is dry or wet. They provide a smooth ride and greater comfort when touring for long distances, and continue to inspire confidence even when you continue your adventure beyond where the pavement ends.
The V-STROM 1050DE takes advantage of wire-spoked wheels with aluminium rims to better endure the 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 deliver the solid traction and performance you want when exploring open trails.

Performance that aims to please
Suzuki's 1,037cm³ four-stroke, 90° V-twin DOHC engine features strong linear torque in the mid rpm range, and a free-revving nature that maximizes power output in the high rpm range. There is also a palpable yet almost indescribable pleasure to its distinctive V-twin rumble and exhaust note. Its V-twin layout also allows for a slimmer chassis design with a lower centre of gravity, and this contributes to nimbler handling and greater manoeuvrability.
  • Transmission
    The six-speed transmission features updated gear ratios. The new ratio for first gear makes shifting from first through fifth gears smoother, makes acceleration faster, and improves controllability. Sixth gear was also updated to make riding at highway speeds more comfortable and enjoyable. The new ratios also contribute to smooth operation of the Bi-directional Quick Shift system.
  • Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS)
    SCAS delivers sure operation and a light touch to clutch lever operation that helps reduce left hand fatigue. At the same time, it ensures positive power transfer when accelerating and smoother deceleration when downshifting, advantages it also brings to the new Bi-directional Quick Shift system as well.
  • Suzuki Dual Spark Technology
    Each cylinder utilizes two iridium spark plugs. The primary plug fires throughout the engine's rpm range, while the secondary plug helps improve combustion efficiency and power delivery at low rpm. This technology also contributes to linear throttle response and stable idle.
  • Sodium-filled exhaust valves
    Hollow sodium-filled exhaust valves help reduce the temperature in the combustion chamber.
    This not only results in better loading efficiency and a better feeling to engine operation, it also contributes to improving the durability of the valves.
  • Forged pistons
    The V-twin engine uses highly-rigid, lightweight forged pistons. The heads are anodized and conical machining inside the wrist pin holes transfer load and mitigate stress transferred to the crowns. Both these treatments contribute to enhanced durability.
  • Electronic Throttle Bodies
    Each of the two cylinders is fed by independent 49mm large bore electronic-controlled throttle bodies. The butterfly valve of each throttle body is opened and closed independently to achieve more precise throttle control and help realize more stable idling.
Tuned Exhaust System
The 2-into-1 exhaust system produces a pleasing note that befits the V-twin engine. Better yet, the high-efficiency catalytic converter inside the collector helps comply with Euro 5 emission standards, while at the same time maximizing power output and overall performance.
