Suzuki unveils new V-Strom Suzuki has unveiled two new V-Strom models today, with a new V-Strom 1050XT and announced at Eicma in Milan, Italy. Developed to the design concept of The Master of Adventure, main features include: Design heavily influenced by Suzukis iconic DR-Z desert racer and DR Big, with a new vertically stacked rectangular LED headlight and distinctive beak. New Euro5 version of the flexible and characterful 90 V-Twin engine producing 107.4PS (79kW), a 7% increase over the previous generation. Styling While unmistakably V-Strom, the new design is a thoroughly modern take on the styling of the legendary DR-Z race bike and DR Big production machine. The beak - now synonymous with adventure bikes - was first seen on the DR-Z, and the new design further highlights the association but with a more aggressive and standout image. The shape of the fuel tank, too, apes the design of the DR-Z. The colour options of the V-Strom 1050XT in particular pay further homage to the desert express and highlight Suzukis rich racing and adventure heritage. It comes in a similar orange and white to the original DR Big, while a yellow version links to Suzukis motocross and off-road pedigree. The handguards, which come as standard, are re-designed and are more angular and rugged, while the mirrors are also new. Careful thought went into the finish of the V-Twin engine, with new bolts completing a look that sees the cylinder heads, clutch cover, alternator cover, and water pump case finished in a classy bronze. Completing the striking new look is a new vertically stacked rectangular LED headlight plus LED tail light and LED indicators.
