Combining the premium experience with real world usability, the relaxing luxury will let you soar out on your adventures. All you need.
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.
As standard the V-Strom 1000X GTA is fitted with genuine 3 piece aluminium luggage for the ultimate adventure, including a top case (38L capacity), and side cases (37L capacity each case).
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 built on a slim, twin-spar aluminium frame, providing a smooth ride, and a sporty riding experience when pushed hard. The aluminium swingarm is set to a length to provide straight line stability and cornering stability at a high level. The bike feels reassuringly steady at high speeds even when it’s fully loaded with luggage and a pillion.
A 19 inch wheel on the front and 17 on the rear provides a premium balance of stability and nimbleness to cope well with all riding situations. The V-Strom 1000XT adopts tubeless tyres with wire-spoke wheels. The wire-spoke wheels absorb shock from the road better due to the flexible character of spokes, and resulting in a softer riding feel, providing the rider with further comfort and exhilarated riding pleasure. Black anodised 43mm inverted front forks and a dial adjustable rear shock absorber help to ensure great road holding and a smooth, comfortable ride.
The effective windscreen on the V-Strom 1000XT uses a ratchet gear mechanism allowing the rider to easily choose from three angles. No tools are necessary and the ideal position can be selected by simply pushing the windscreen by one hand, even with gloves on. The height of the screen can also be set to three pre-set positions using four bolts. The new screen has an improved design 49mm taller and with a smaller curve on the tip section, resulting in less wind blast, turbulence, noise to the helmet, and a clearer view.
Reducing the wind blast to the hands of the rider and providing comfort especially in the rain or cold weather, the once optional Knuckle Covers are now standard to support harsh condition riding. Comfort and accurate control to the levers shall further improve by installing the optional Grip Heaters for long distance rides in severe conditions. The Under Cowling is also standard to give the rider that extra adventure feel.
The V-Strom 1000XT is equipped with some of the most advanced rider technology available, including a Motion Track Brake System¹, Advanced Traction Control System², 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.
The easy to see and easy to operate/understand instrument cluster provides rich information to the rider. It incorporates a big analogue tachometer and large digital readouts for the gear position and speedometer. The digital section below displays the odometer, twin-trip meter, clock, fuel level, coolant temperature, ambient temperature⁴, battery voltage, range on remaining fuel, average and instantaneous fuel consumptions, and traction-control modes.
