Both machines use an updated version of Suzuki’s proven 1037cc V-Twin engine, which produces 7% more power than the outgoing V-Strom 1000 while meeting Euro5 regulations. Peak power is now 107PS. They also get a three-mode traction control system, that can be turned off, and three selectable engine maps.
The V-Strom 1050XT’s electronics package is enhanced thanks to Suzuki’s Intelligent Ride System (SIRS), which features an inertial measurement unit (IMU), lean-angle sensitive ABS with two settings, linked brakes that can detect and adapt to load and inclines, plus hill hold control and cruise control.
The XT also swaps the V-Strom 1050’s cast aluminium wheels for spoked items, and boasts hand guards, engine bars, and a centre stand as standard.
Announcing the pricing, Suzuki GB’s head of motorcycles, Jonathan Martin said, “Suzuki’s V-Strom range has always delivered exciting and dependable performance you can enjoy every day and everywhere while offering great value, and the new V-Strom 1050 and V-Strom 1050XT continue to do that. Available from just £9,999, it means it is the most competitively priced adventure bike over 1000cc, and means customers can enjoy all the benefits of the new V-Strom 1050s plus still afford to take off on some adventures on their new bikes.”
The new V-Strom 1050 and V-Strom 1050XT are currently on display at Motorcycle Live, which is taking place at Birmingham’s NEC until Sunday 24 November.
