The 2016 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 is primed and ready to support any rider’s adventuresome side, whether that adventure is a multi-day journey or a commute to work.
Powered by a 1037cc, 90-degree V-Twin engine featuring Suzuki’s Dual Throttle Valve fuel injection delivering the crisp throttle response needed when the roads get technical, plus the smooth top-end power needed for effortless highway roaming.
The advanced Traction Control System helps riders control power output with confidence in a variety of riding conditions. The three-mode system continuously monitors front and rear wheel speeds, and gets information from the throttle position sensor, the crank position sensor, and the gear position sensor. It quickly reduces engine output when it detects wheel spin by adjusting ignition timing and air delivery.
The bike’s advanced chassis uses an aluminium twin-spar frame, with fully adjustable 43mm inverted forks up front and a single-shock rear suspension that features rebound damping adjustability, plus a remote spring pre-load adjuster.
The standard Antilock Brake System (ABS)* monitors wheel speeds 50 times per wheel rotation to match stopping power to the available traction.
A 3-way height- and angle-adjustable windscreen has been carefully shaped through extensive wind-tunnel testing to reduce wind noise and rider fatigue. The angle is easily adjusted by hand.
Suzuki developed a smart integrated three-part luggage system that enables the owner to attach and remove the Genuine Suzuki Accessory side cases and the top box quickly and easily without using tools.
Riders stay informed using an info-rich instrument cluster that includes an analogue tachometer and a brightness-adjustable LCD speedometer. LCD readouts include an odometer, dual trip meters, the gear position, the coolant and ambient temperatures, the voltage, the riding range, the average fuel consumption, the instantaneous fuel consumption, the traction control mode, a fuel gauge, and a clock.
The 2016 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 is available for a recommended retail ride away price of $16,990 in Metallic Mystic Silver, Candy Red and Metallic Matte Grey colour schemes and is backed by Suzuki’s two-year, unlimited kilometre warranty.
