Condition: New


The 2024 V-STROM 1050DE models are engineered so you can conquer the unexpected. Continuing the reputation of a reliable sports adventure tourer, the V-STROM 1050DE delivers a stronger connection between rider and machine. 

The V-STROM 1050DE’s proven V-twin engine rides in a chassis with significant ground clearance to accommodate a 21-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke-style wheels with Dunlop Adventure tires. Compared to the base V-STROM 1050, the DE has a longer rake and wheelbase for better handling on gravel roads and dirt trails, a longer suspension stroke to better absorb bumps on rough surfaces, as well as wide steel foot pegs and a large diameter tapered-aluminum handlebar. 

Thanks to the renowned Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.), V-STROM 1050DE riders have even more comfort and control over varied terrain and conditions. The 5-inch color TFT LCD multi-function instrument panel clearly displays the S.I.R.S. settings that include a Gravel (G) mode in the Suzuki Traction Control System* and the ability to switch off the rear ABS**. The V-STROM 1050DE further emphasizes the aggressive look of its Suzuki Dakar-inspired styling with its unique front fender, aluminum engine protector, and rugged accessory bar.

No other Adventure motorcycle can match the 2024 V-STROM 1050DE’s emphasis on all-terrain capability with the value and performance that is synonymous with the name “V-Strom”.


*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. Traction control cannot prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
**Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

Key Items

  • Coated with Glass Sparkle Black/ Metallic Matte Black paint combination, the V-STROM 1050DE’s ADV-themed styling retains Suzuki’s original rally-beak look, paying homage to past Suzuki Dakar Rally bikes and the DR-Big large-displacement DualSport.
  • Ready to go off-pavement, the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) now includes a bi-directional quick shift system, a new Gravel (G) mode to the Suzuki Traction Control System* and the ability to switch off the rear ABS**.
  • The V-Strom’s narrow and nimble chassis legacy continues with a durable, twin-spar aluminum frame coupled to a new, longer more rigid swingarm that supports the new longer suspension resulting in more ground clearance.
  • Versatile for any ride, the 1037cc, V-twin engine produces more horsepower than ever before, retaining its strong pull in the lower-rpm range and good fuel economy while complying with worldwide emissions standards.
  • An all-new, 5-inch color TFT LCD multi-function instrument panel features a display that is clearly legible at nighttime or in bright sun. A USB port to the side of the instrument panel supplies power for smartphones or other accessories like a GPS.
  • The longer, fully adjustable, inverted fork holds radially mounted four-piston brake calipers that grasp dual brake rotors mounted to a 21-inch spoke-style front wheel carrying an aggressive Dunlop TRAILMAX MIXTOUR Adventure tire.
  • *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.
  • **Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.


  • The liquid-cooled, DOHC, 1037cc, 90-degree, V-twin engine delivers more horsepower with the same level of torque and fuel economy while achieving worldwide emissions compliance.
  • The large-bore, high-compression pistons were engineered with the use of FEM analysis to achieve ideal rigidity, weight, and improved durability.
  • Both the exhaust and intake camshafts have increased valve lift timing with less overlap to boost engine power while reducing fuel consumption.
  • The Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle system is updated to take advantage of the powerful 32-bit ECM to control the action of the throttle valves with more finely tuned settings that better balance the relationship between throttle action and engine output characteristics.
  • The grip return force is also recalibrated to provide even better feel and control to the rider. Overall, Suzuki’s electronic throttle system is simpler and more compact than a mechanical throttle. Each cylinder is fed by a large, 49mm electronic-controlled throttle body with a single butterfly valve that is opened and closed by its own independent motor for precise throttle control. Since the Ride-by-Wire system does not use mechanical cables, the throttle feel to the rider is smooth and linear. With no cables connected to the throttle grip, installation of a Suzuki accessory heated grip set is simplified.
  • Each cylinder has a 10-hole fuel injector, located downstream of the throttle body on the intake manifold, which creates good fuel atomization for superior combustion efficiency and low fuel consumption.
  • The transistorized digital ignition system independently fires the dual spark plugs in each cylinder head for more complete combustion by igniting the mixture at the ideal moment. Twin iridium-type spark plugs are used in the Dual Spark Plug System to deliver a more condensed and hotter spark, yet they last longer than conventional plugs.
  • Matched to the efficient exhaust, the Suzuki Pulsed Secondary Air Injection (PAIR) system injects fresh air into the exhaust ports to satisfy a variety of US and international emission standards without sacrificing performance.
  • A liquid-cooled oil cooler is located where the oil filter is attached to the engine. This compact, lightweight cooler takes up less space than a conventional oil cooler while reducing lubrication oil temperature.
  • Replaceable plastic shields protect engine parts, such as the clutch cover, from scuffs from the rider’s boots.
  • The perfect primary balance provided by the 90-degree V-twin design negates the need for any balancer shafts or rubber mounting, as the engine has smooth power pulses.
  • These pistons move within Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)–plated cylinder bores that are integrated into the upper crankcase for low weight, increased durability, reduced friction, and excellent heat dissipation.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE is the first Suzuki motorcycle to employ hollow sodium-filled exhaust valves. These valves help reduce temperature in the combustion chamber, improving flow efficiency and durability.
  • The V-STROM’s electronic throttle system precisely maintains a stable engine idle under all conditions. This precise idle control is key to the V-STROM’s Low RPM Assist feature that seamlessly adjusts engine speed during takeoff and low-speed riding to smooth the power delivery and to help reduce the possibility of the rider stalling the motorcycle.
  • The air cleaner box uses specially designed, elongated intake funnels to boost torque at lower engine speeds to help achieve the V-Twin engine’s unique power characteristics.
  • The single-silencer exhaust configuration reduces weight and has a low center of gravity to aid handling, maneuverability, and luggage mounting.
  • The V-STROM’s exhaust uses a compact, high-efficiency catalyzer to achieve an effective level of emission control while providing good flow to match the engine’s performance.
  • The V-STROM’s radiator has 15% increased cooling capacity (compared to prior generation V-Strom 1000) to accommodate high engine output. Coolant temperature is stabilized via a thermostatically controlled cooling fan.
  • A durable bronze finish paint is applied to the cylinder head covers, clutch cover, magneto cover, and water pump case for a striking contrast with the black crankcase.

Transmission and Driveline

  • The six-speed, close-ratio transmission is updated with higher gear ratios in first and sixth gear that smooth the shift action into second and higher gears. This also increases the sensation of acceleration to the rider when opening the throttle. The updated gear ratios also contribute to the smooth operation of the new Bi-directional Quick Shift system.
  • Riding on durable steel sprockets, a new stronger and longer O-ring style drive chain (RK525 x 120L) contains lubrication pre-packed between the pins and rollers for quiet, reliable operation.
  • The transmission’s output is managed by the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS). This system works like a slipper clutch by allowing a small amount of clutch slip to enable smooth downshifts. It also works as an assist clutch, making the clutch lever pull light and precise.

Advanced Electronics

  • Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) Essential to Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) operation, the V-STROM 1050DE’s IMU measures six directions of movement along three axes (as compared to the five directions measured by the prior V-Strom 1000). The IMU detects pitch, roll, and yaw movement based on the motorcycle’s position, movement, and acceleration.
  • This high-performance six-direction IMU, supplied by Bosch, combines a three-axis angular rate sensor (gyrometer) and a three-axis acceleration sensor in a single compact unit.
  • Engine Control Module (ECM) The 32-bit ECM has a fast processor and new programming to efficiently operate the fuel-injection system, Ride-by-Wire throttle bodies, ignition, and other electrical features on the V-STROM 1050DE.
  • CAN (Controller Area Network) Technology Also key to the operation of the S.I.R.S., the V-STROM 1050DE uses an interconnected information network instead of a conventional wiring harness.
  • Because it requires fewer wires, this CAN-wiring lets the vehicle be lighter and simpler and provides a way for the advanced components – such as the cruise control – to have faster data transmission with the ECM. The CAN-wiring also provides a single connection point for diagnosing any errors that may occur throughout the entire network.
  • ABS Unit The V-STROM 1050DE is equipped with a new Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)** control unit that is more compact and lighter in weight than the prior unit.
  • Working in conjunction with the IMU, the ABS control unit is key to the operation of the Motion Track Brake System, Slope Dependent Control System, Load Dependent Control System, and Hill Hold Control System.
  • **Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.


  • For the 2024 V-STROM 1050 models, Suzuki decided to create a new variation on proven chassis architecture to offer riders a choice of optimization geared toward their intended use or riding preferences.
  • Specifically, the V-STROM 1050 retains its great all-round adventure touring setup with a focus more on comfort and riding pleasure for long-distance on-road outings. In contrast, the V-STROM 1050DE aims to provide even better performance and control for those who wish to spend more of their time exploring gravel roads and flat dirt trails.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE and 1050DE Adventure models receive their own dedicated chassis geometry with a longer wheelbase, longer rake, more ground clearance and a wider handlebar grip. The purpose is to improve stability and controllability when riding on unpaved surfaces and to provide a comfortable riding position that effectively distributes weight to the front and rear.
  • Augmented by Glass Sparkle Black/ Metallic Matte Black paint and complementary graphics, the V-STROM’s beak flows into a vertically stacked LED headlight with a unique rectangular shape, then upward to a sporty windscreen. The headlight effectively illuminates the road surfaces and surrounding areas, so the rider has an excellent view of what is ahead.
  • A mounting bar just below the rider’s eye level is part of the windscreen mount, providing a good place to position accessories like a GPS for navigation.
  • Both the clutch and front brake levers have adjustment knobs so the rider can quickly set them to a comfortable reach. The shifter and rear brake pedal can also be adjusted to the rider’s preference.
  • Wide, steel footrests help the rider comfortably maneuver the V-STROM 1050DE on diverse types of roads. Rubber inserts damp vibration but can be removed so the rider’s boots can have even more grip of the pegs.
  • The fuel tank has a generous 5.3-gallon capacity and its shape and protective cover have been designed for a slim tank-and-seat junction for rider comfort.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE uses a new sub-frame with stronger seat rails and battery and rear fender brackets that better withstand the shocks from riding on unpaved surfaces.
  • The 43mm KYB inverted front fork delivers a controlled, yet plush ride in diverse conditions. The fork legs have adjustable spring preload plus compression and rebound-damping force adjusters. The front and rear suspension spring rates, damping force valving, and piston settings were custom-tuned for the V-STROM 1050DE to maximize performance and comfort when riding on unpaved surfaces. The updates to the front suspension result in a longer 6.7 in. (170 mm) fork stroke. This is an increase of 0.4 in. (10 mm) over the prior V-STROM 1050XT fork stroke.
  • Movement of the new cast aluminum swingarm is controlled by a single rear shock with remote, hydraulic spring preload adjustment so adjusting for cargo or a passenger takes just seconds. The single-shock, link-style rear suspension also features rebound-damping force adjustment.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE has a new longer version of the proven V-STROM 1050 swingarm. To retain nimble handling, this new swingarm has the same vertical and lateral rigidity with 10% increased torsional rigidity that complements the V-STROM 1050DE’s chassis geometry and longer wheelbase, resulting in superb straight-line stability. Updates to the rear suspension result in longer 6.6 in. (168 mm) rear wheel travel. This is an increase of 0.3 in. (8 mm) over the prior V-STROM 1050XT rear wheel travel.
  • Radial-mounted Tokico four-piston front brake calipers are mated with 310mm floating-mount dual discs. These efficient calipers are connected to the Motion Track Anti-lock** and Combination Brake System for strong stopping performance.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE rides on spoke-style wheels and adopts a 21-inch aluminum, tube-type front rim for greater stability and control when riding on unpaved surfaces (the rear wheel is a tubeless type). The 90/90-21 Dunlop TRAILMAX MIXTOUR tire in the front and 150/70R17 Dunlop TRAILMAX MIXTOUR tire in the rear feature a semi-block pattern and an internal structure designed exclusively for aggressive adventure riding.
  • A specific version of these new adventure tires were developed for the V-STROM 1050DE to provide solid performance on the road, as well as good grip and nimble handling when exploring gravel roads and dirt trails.
  • A large, resin luggage rack incorporates passenger grab handles while providing a flat and level platform for cargo or the mounting of Suzuki accessory top cases.
  • Especially designed for off-pavement use, a new engine protector constructed of 3 mm (0.12 in.) aluminum plate shields the front and bottom of the frame, exhaust header, and engine from trail debris.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE continues the trim, distinctive styling that incorporates elements of both Suzuki’s legendary DR-Z Dakar racer and the large DualSport DR-Big. Since its introduction by Suzuki, the characteristic off-road beak design has become an integral feature of a modern Adventure-style motorcycle.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE receives a unique, smaller windscreen designed to maximize visibility when riding on dirt trails and on gravel roads. Over three inches (80 mm) shorter and slightly narrower than the V-STROM 1050 windscreen, it has been developed to reduce wind buffeting to the rider’s helmet. The height of the windscreen is adjustable using basic hand tools. Suzuki accessory kits to add a higher windscreen or quick-release height adjustment are available.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE has a new 1.57-inch wider (40 mm overall, 20 mm per side) tapered aluminum handlebar. Cast in thicker tubing from a softer grade of aluminum than the V-STROM 1050 handlebar, this construction allows more flex when riding on unpaved surfaces and better shock absorption for greater comfort. In addition, the wider grip position provides enhanced control, particularly when standing on the foot pegs to negotiate rough terrain.
  • The mirrors feature a design that complements the V-STROM 1050DE’s styling while proving an excellent view of objects behind the rider.
  • The slender chassis, thanks to the narrow V-twin engine design, fuel tank and trim seat, helps the rider’s legs reach the ground more easily than other models in the V-STROM 1050DE’s category.
  • A sizable portion of the V-Strom legacy is its durable, twin-spar aluminum frame that balances weight and rigidity for optimal handling on all types of roads. The V-STROM 1050DE's aluminum alloy frame incorporates cast sections along with extruded sections that deliver the proper amount of suppleness and strength to the chassis.
  • The rider’s seat features a fixed-height design with a new bottom shape that increases rigidity while reducing weight by 1.5 lbs. (706 g, a 37% reduction in mass). Designed for durability, this new seat is more durable for riding on unpaved surfaces, as well as to weight shifts as the rider changes position.
  • The rider and pillion seats provide a comfortable upright riding position that reduces fatigue, even when riding for long distances. The sides of both seats are covered with high-grip texture material to help the rider and passenger stay connected to the motorcycle.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE uses a new three-piece front fender assembly that combines the effectiveness of a conventional V-STROM fender with the protection of fork guards like those used on an MX bike. This Suzuki-unique structure yields a stronger connection to the fork legs that can better withstand the shocks encountered when riding on unpaved surfaces. An added aesthetic benefit of this front fender assembly is the fork guards are color coordinated to other body parts.
  • Because of the suspension changes, front wheel diameter, and chassis geometry, the V-STROM 1050DE ground clearance is 1.0 in. more than the V-STROM 1050. This helps the motorcycle ride over uneven terrain without touching the bottom of the frame to the ground. Ground clearance V-STROM 1050DE 7.5 in. (190 mm) Ground clearance V-STROM 1050 6.5 in. (165 mm)
  • The rear brake combines a 260mm outer diameter disc with a NISSIN-supplied single-piston caliper that provides fine braking control at all road speeds.
  • Because of the V-STROM 1050DE higher stance chassis, it is equipped with longer, model-unique side- and center-stands. The sturdy center-stand is a standard feature that aids the rider when servicing the motorcycle or loading luggage.
  • Ready for mounting auxiliary lights, or reducing damage in a tip-over, a sturdy accessory bar is mounted to the V-STROM 1050DE.
  • **Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.


  • The 2024 V-STROM 1050DE’s instrument panel uses a new-generation 5-inch, full-color TFT LCD screen. This TFT display is the first of its kind on a Suzuki Adventure motorcycle.
  • The brightness adjustable TFT display delivers a wide range of useful information, keeping the rider fully aware of all the bike’s systems, settings, and real-time operating status.
  • The display can be set for manual or automatic switching between Day Mode (white background) and Night Mode (black background). The display’s general brightness can be set to automatically adjust to the ambient light-level, or manually set to suit the rider’s preference.
  • The main TFT panel is flanked by LED indicators, including: Left-turn signal indicator, MIL (Malfunction Indication Lamp), neutral indicator light, master warning indicator, high-beam indicator light, right-turn signal indicator, TC (Traction Control)* indicator, low oil pressure warning light, ABS** indicator, and coolant temperature warning light.
  • A USB-type accessory slot is conveniently located to the left of the instrument panel. This fused slot can provide up to 5.0 VDC at a maximum current of 2.0A. The slot is ideal for powering a GPS unit or charging mobile devices.
  • The V-STROM 1050DE’s fairing features a stacked, rectangular LED headlight for excellent road and trail illumination while matching Suzuki’s Dakar Rally bike styling.
  • The rear tail and brake light is an LED type with a clear lens that offers higher visibility, low electrical draw, and excellent durability.
  • **Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please ride carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
  • This high-quality instrument panel is set into the upper fairing above the handlebars, for good visibility and protection from road debris. The TFT panel, itself, features a scratch-resistant surface, and an anti-reflective coating that improves visibility in bright light.
  • The TFT panel provides operational information in an easily recognizable way: The left side of the panel has an analog tachometer animation with a sweeping red needle that accurately shows engine speed all the way up to the 9,250 RPM redline. The tachometer can be preset to flash at certain engine speeds, acting like a shift-light.
  • To the left, center of the panel is a digital speedometer, quick-shift system status indicator, and gear position indicator. Directly below the speed display is a fuel level gauge. The upper right portion of the panel displays the clock and S.I.R.S. feature information such as the Traction Control*, plus the S-DMS and ABS** settings.
  • Depending upon the rider’s selection, the lower portion of the right side of the panel can display coolant temperature, ambient air temperature, odometer, dual tripmeters, fuel consumption, and riding range.
  • The charging system uses a durable, three-phase stator with an open-style regulator/rectifier that reduces mechanical drag and heat while producing higher output at lower engine speeds. A high-capacity, maintenance-free style battery and fuses are easily accessible under the seat.
  • A SAE 12-volt, 36W DC socket is located under the passenger seat (electrical accessory wattage should not exceed 12W when the engine is operated a low speeds). This convenient outlet can be used to charge or power a range of electrical devices.
  • The V-STROM 1050 has lightweight and low-draw LED turn signals that are brighter than the signals used on the prior generation V-Strom models.
  • *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.
