The lines and contours of the V-Strom 1000 ABS combine to communicate the bike’s unparalleled adventure-touring credentials. Cast your eye over the bodywork and you will appreciate how black and silver details complement the lines and contours to communicate ruggedness and quality. Even the headlights and tail light contribute to the look of adventure. The headlights have 55W and 65W bulbs in Suzuki’s hallmark vertical configuration. And the tail light has LEDs, which are exceptionally reliable—a reassuring benefit when you are exploring far from home. The bike’s unmistakable looks were inspired by Suzuki’s first-ever big on/off-road motorcycle, the 1988 DR-BIG (DR750S). A signature detail echoing that classic adventure bike is the front beak, which signals to the world that the new V-Strom carries Suzuki DNA.
Comfort for the Long Haul
As a V-Strom 1000 ABS rider, you will appreciate the relaxed, upright riding position, which keeps you comfortable and fully in control whether you are negotiating city traffic, touring across country, or exploring forest trails. The rider’s section of the seat gives superior hold to help maximize the rider’s control. And it is low and slim thanks to the V-twin engine, so it helps you put your feet down on the ground. The passenger’s section has a high-grip surface to help the passenger stay securely positioned.
