Plentiful power to conquer the steep mountain passes with a pillion rider, yet still putting a grin on your face with its exciting sportiness. State-of-the-art technology, always there to support a difficult task. Comfort to go on and on, and on. Combining the premium experience with real world usability, the relaxing luxury will let you soar out on your adventures. All you need. V-Strom 1000XT.
The V-Strom 1000XT is driven by a powerful and versatile 90-degree, DOHC, V-Twin. The strong, rider-friendly nature of this engine gives effortless acceleration no matter what the riding situation or the presence of a pillion rider. The 101PS maximum output at 8,000rpm will give the rider an exciting riding experience.
With two V-Strom 1000 variants available, as standard the V-Strom 1000XT is fitted with wire spoke wheels for better shock absorption and comfort, as well as tapered handlebars for a more off-road look.
The V-Strom 1000XT is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a Motion Track Brake System, Advanced Traction Control System, Low RPM Assist and Suzuki Easy Start System.
By adding the new design concept "Tough Gear" to the existing "Wild and Smart", the new V-Strom 1000XT now has an updated look, mainly in the upper cowling, in kin to its 645cc brother bringing the V-Strom family together. Suzuki's original “Beak” style has been further emphasised by making it a straight line from the tip to the top of the tank, expressing the DNA from the DR-BIG and the desert racer DR-Z. The newly designed double stitched seat has a sense of quality, and the tandem area is parallel with the rear carrier providing a large flat space to securely strap large baggage when needed. Champion yellow is a new colour for the V-Strom 1000XT, relating to the off-road racing scene of Suzuki.
Conventional starter switches needed to be pressed by the rider until the engine starts, but the V-Strom 1000XT has adopted the Suzuki Easy Start System enabling the engine to start with one push of the button
Equipped with the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS), the clutch acts as a slipper clutch system when changing down rapidly, while always providing light use of the lever. SCAS is an advanced clutch system supporting sporty riding and less fatigue
