Suzuki V-Strom 1050 DE

At the Suzuki stand visitors will have the chance to admire and touch the new V-Strom 1050 DE, the machine that marked the return of the Japanese manufacturer in the 21” front wheel maxi-enduro segment. Compared to the 19” front wheel version, the DE variant features a dedicated suspension system, in order to increase the wheel travel, which is respectively 170mm front and 169mm rear. The beating heart of the newborn from Akashi is represented by the 1,037cc 90-degree V-Twin, capable of 107 hp at 8,500 rpm and 100 Nm at 6,000 rpm. Main updates concern the electronic package, which inherits from the previous V-Strom 1050 XT the 6-axis inertial platform, which supervises all the electronic controls, such as ABS with cornering function, Riding Modes and traction control. The latter has been enriched with a new Gravel option. Obviously, for off-road riding, the rider has the opportunity to deactivate the ABS from the rear wheel.
