V-STROM 1000


The 2016 V-Strom 1000 ABS is designed for unforgettable sport-adventure riding. It has a Suzuki fuel-injected, 90-degree V-twin engine tuned for incredible low-end and mid-range torque, so you can tap into thrilling acceleration in every gear. It is also equipped with traction control, a key to its versatile capabilities. That performance is matched by a lightweight chassis and advanced suspension that provides remarkably crisp handling even on the tightest back road.


  • Fuel economy (4.78L/100km or 20.9km/L in the Worldwide Motorcycle Test Cycle) gives a calculated riding range of 418km and is 16% better than that of the previous model.
  • Twin iridium spark plugs for each cylinder heighten the spark strength and combustion efficiency, thereby contributing to higher power, more linear throttle response, easier engine start-up, and a more stable idle.
  • Pistons were engineered with use of FEM analysis to achieve optimal rigidity and weight.
  • Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (SCEM)-plated cylinders integrated into the upper crankcase reduce friction and improve heat transfer and durability.
  • Fuel injection by Suzuki’s original Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) system enables smooth power delivery and optimal combustion efficiency.
  • 10-hole fuel injectors (replacing four-hole injectors) on each throttle body improve fuel atomization for better combustion efficiency and lower fuel consumption.
  • A newly designed magneto has low-loss material that heightens power-generating efficiency for lower mechanical losses and accordingly higher output at low and medium-range engine speeds.
  • The open-type rectifier disconnects the magneto when the magneto is not generating electricity. Since the magneto does not work unnecessarily, mechanical losses are lower and torque is accordingly higher at low and mid-range engine speeds.
  • The single-muffler layout gives a lower centre of gravity and thereby enables better handling and manoeuvrability.
  • The exhaust system has Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) technology. An ECM-controlled butterfly in the exhaust pipe optimises the exhaust pressure, increases controllability.
  • A large-volume catalyzer further reduces emissions of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides, thereby enabling the bike to satisfy the Euro 3 regulations.
  • Seat and fuel tank meet slim thanks to slim V-twin engine design, enables easy foot reach to the ground. High and Low Genuine Accessory seat options are also available.
  • Rear suspension spring pre-load is adjustable in 24ways without using tools.
  • Lightweight 10-spoke cast-aluminium wheels (manufactured by Enkei) combine nimble handling with sporty looks.
  • The rider can switching between LCD readings using the left handlebar switch.
  • To emphasise Suzuki’s heritage, the bike reflects design cues from the 1988 DR750S, Suzuki’s first adventure touring motorcycle.
  • The headlights have the distinctive vertical configuration seen on the Hayabusa and GSX-R sportbikes.
  • Rear combination lights have LEDs, which offer higher visibility and greater durability than bulbs.
  • The seat is shaped for comfort and to allow riders to easily put their feet on the ground. The side walls of the seat have a high-grip texture for strong hold.
