MCN Fleet: Touring and off-road await the Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT

Published: 10 March 2020

Updated: 17 March 2020

The £11,299 (2020 launch price) Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT looks temptingly affordable, especially with its new electronics.

But do the cheaper middleweights, like the Triumph Tiger 900 or Ducati Multistrada 950, outclass it? I’d also like to see if it can handle the rough stuff, while a two-up trip to France should test its touring mettle.

Bike specs 1037cc | 107bhp | 236kg | 855mm seat height
