Key Items

  • Finished with a new Glass Blaze Orange and Metallic Matte Black No. 2 colorway, the bodywork is a modern interpretation of the iconic Suzuki DR-Big DAKAR-beak look for true adventure style.
  • Poised to support any riding mission, the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) now includes cruise control, a bi-directional quick shift system, as well as the Motion Track Brake System that allows ABS** activation when the bike is leaning through a corner.
  • The V-Strom’s narrow and nimble chassis legacy continues with a durable, twin-spar aluminum frame that helps the rider’s legs reach the ground more easily, while balancing weight and rigidity for optimal handling on all types of roads.
  • Perfect for the long haul, the 1037cc, V-twin engine produces more horsepower than ever before, retaining its strong pull in the lower-rpm range, delivering 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 fully adjustable, inverted fork holds radially mounted four-piston brake calipers that grasp dual brake rotors mounted to a 19-inch cast-aluminum front wheel as the 17-inch rear wheel rides in an aluminum swingarm controlled by a link-style shock adsorber with a hand-operated, hydraulic spring preload adjuster.


  • 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, that 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 L-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 1050 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, the RK-supplied O-ring style drive chain 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 1050’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 1050.
  • CAN (Controller Area Network) Technology Also key to the operation of the S.I.R.S., the V-STROM 1050 now employs 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 Control Unit The V-STROM 1050 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, this 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 setting with a focus more on comfort and riding pleasure for long-distance on-road outings. In contrast, the V-STROM 1050DE/Adventure models aim to provide even better performance and control for those who wish to spend more of their time exploring gravel roads and flat dirt trails.
  • Augmented by new body colors and graphics, the V-STROM’s beak flows into a vertically stacked LED headlight with a unique rectangular shape. 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, aluminum footrests with thick rubber pads damp vibration while helping the rider comfortably maneuver the V-STROM 1050 on different types of roads.
  • 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.
  • A significant 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.
  • Movement of the 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 rear brake combines a 260mm outer diameter rotor disc with a NISSIN-supplied single-piston caliper that provides fine braking control at all road speeds.
  • 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.
  • A new under cover (cowl) protects the oil filter, exhaust header, and engine from road debris while refining the motorcycle’s image.
  • The V-STROM 1050 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 height-adjustable windscreen was developed through extensive wind-tunnel testing to reduce wind noise and buffeting to the rider. The windscreen can be adjusted by hand to 11 different positions within a two-inch height range.
  • The high rise, large diameter tapered aluminum handlebar provides the rider good steering control while promoting a distinctive off-road appearance. The lightweight, high-strength handlebar also damps vibration to the rider.
  • The mirrors feature a new design that complements the V-STROM’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 class.
  • The height of the V-STROM 1050 rider seat can be adjusted upward an additional 0.8 in. (20mm) from its standard 33.7 in. (855 mm) seat height. Adjustment is performed using an included tool and height riser that are stored beneath the pillion seat.
  • The rider and pillion seats provide a comfortable upright riding position that reduces fatigue, even when touring for long distances. The sides of the plush, two-up seat are covered with high-grip texture material to help the rider stay connected to the motorcycle.
  • The 43mm KYB inverted front fork provides a sporty, yet plush ride in diverse conditions. The fork legs have adjustable spring preload plus compression and rebound-damping force adjusters.
  • 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 lightweight 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels (manufactured for Suzuki by Enkei) combine nimble handling with sporty looks. These wheels are shod with Bridgestone Battlax Adventure A41 radial tires that deliver nimble handling and positive grip, while providing a smooth ride and compliance when touring for long distances.
  • A sure-footed center-stand is a standard feature on the V-STROM 1050 to help the rider when servicing the motorcycle or loading luggage.
  • **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’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 1050’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 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.
