2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure Review

2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure on Totalmotorcycle.com

When size, weight, power, and maneuverability come into balance, you find yourself in a zone where time just disappears...

Stay the course because there is no road the all-new V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure was not made to conquer. This motorcycle makes the journey of life seamless. Conquer city traffic as easily you scale mountains. Roar down new highways. Explore your taste for discovery on roads long untraveled. Starting now, the planet is your neighborhood.

The all-new 2014 V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure was redesigned from the ground up. It has many improvements over the previous V-Strom 1000 and the list is enormous. One of the newest changes or additions is Suzuki's first Traction Control System on a motorcycle which the V-Strom proudly carries. Other features that were improved or redesigned are the engine, fuel injectors, magento, idle speed control, radiator, clutch, transmission, exhaust, suspension, and much more! See the features list for more details on this one of a kind adventure bike!

If you're looking for an unforgettable sport-adventure, there's no better machine than the new V-Strom 1000 SE. With sleek side cases, hand guards & center stand it takes versatility to a new level. It boasts the same exceptional performance as the original V-Strom 1000 ABS, with a Suzuki fuel-injected, 90-degree V-twin engine tuned for incredible low-end and mid-range torque. It also has a lightweight chassis and advanced suspension to provide crisp handling even on tight back roads. When you reach the open highway, the V-Strom 1000 SE excels. Its smooth engine performance, aerodynamic windshield and ergonomic riding position make it one of the finest sport-touring machines available. With the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 SE, Sport-adventure is yours for the taking

The Adventure Model comes standard with the following accessories: Skid Plate, Hand Guards, Touring Windscreen, Side Cases and Mounting Brackets, and Accessories Bars.

*The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves.

The Adventure Model comes standard with the following accessories: Skid Plate, Hand Guards, Touring Windscreen, Side Cases and Mounting Brackets, and Accessories Bars

Suzuki’s Traction Control System* continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speeds, the throttle position sensor, the crank position sensor, and the gear position sensor. It quickly reduces engine output when it detects wheel spin. It controls the engine output by managing the ignition timing and air delivery about every 4 milliseconds.

1 The rider can select three modes (1, 2, and off). Modes 1 and 2 differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode 1 has lower sensitivity; it allows a certain degree of rear wheel spin. Mode 2 has higher sensitivity; the system effects traction control sooner.

*Note: The traction control system is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.

2 A redesigned 1037cc, 90-degree V-twin engine is designed to get you where you want to go. Whether it is around town, on the open highway, or down the road less traveled.

The light and compact Anti-Lock brake system (ABS)* system monitors the wheel speed as much as 50 times per wheel rotation and matches the stopping power to the available traction.

*The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves.


 

2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Engine Features

A redesigned 1037cc, 90-degree V-twin engine is designed to get you where you want to go. Whether it is around town, on the open highway, or down the road less traveled.

Increased cooling capacity has eliminated the oil cooler and as a net result, weight saving

The exhaust has been completely redesigned with Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) technology which has an ECM-controlled butterfly located in the exhaust pipes that optimizes pressure

The new single-muffler layout provides a lower center of gravity which reduces weight and increases handling and maneuverability.

The piston rings are thinner and have 15% less tensile force for lower friction. They contribute to higher combustion efficiency and fuel economy.

New pistons were engineered with use of FEM analysis to achieve optimal rigidity and weight. Although the pistons are larger than the ones they replace, they are the same weight and equally rigid.

The cylinder heads have been redesigned to accommodate two iridium spark plugs per cylinder.

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.

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.

New, 10-hole fuel injectors (replacing four-hole injectors) on each throttle body improve fuel atomization for better combustion efficiency and lower fuel consumption.

A 32-bit engine control module provides state-of-the-art engine management and has optimized settings to suit the single muffler, resulting in better fuel economy and linear throttle response.

The new fuel-injection system works with the Suzuki-developed and patent-pending throttle-body-integrated Idle Speed Control (ISC) system. The ICS contributes to easy cold-starting, stable idling, and lower emissions.

 

Transmission Features

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 Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) works as a slipper clutch on downshifts. By letting the clutch slip at a certain degree, the rider has reduced fatigue and smoother shifts.

The V-Strom has a 6 speed constant mesh transmission where the 6th gear has been redesigned for a smoother ride.

 

Chassis Features

The V-Strom 1000’s chassis has been redesigned to perform well in all kinds of roads the rider typically encounters during on tours.

The fuel tank has slimmed thanks to the new slimmer V-twin engine

Redesigned main frame and subframe increases rigidity balance for greater stability and handling. It’s also 13% lighter than the previous model.

The new V-Strom uses a 43mm KYB inverted front forks to provide a sporty yet plush ride in diverse conditions.

Dial adjustable rear shock helps ensure a smooth and comfortable ride even with a passenger and a full compartment of luggage

3 Tokico 4-piston monoblock front brake calipers with 310mm floating-mount dual discs are now equipped with the new V-Strom for a stronger braking performance.

The light and compact Anti-Lock brake system (ABS)* system monitors the wheel speed as much as 50 times per wheel rotation and matches the stopping power to the available traction.

*The ABS is a supplemental device for brake operation, not a device for shortening stopping distance. Always remember to reduce speed sufficiently before approaching curves.

Newly designed Enkei wheels are a lightweight 10-spoke cast aluminum

 

Additional Features

The newly developed 9-way adjustable windscreen has been designed through extensive wind-tunnel testing.

Suzuki’s Traction Control System* continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speeds, the throttle position sensor, the crank position sensor, and the gear position sensor. It quickly reduces engine output when it detects wheel spin. It controls the engine output by managing the ignition timing and air delivery about every 4 milliseconds.

The rider can select three modes (1, 2, and off). Modes 1 and 2 differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode 1 has lower sensitivity; it allows a certain degree of rear wheel spin. Mode 2 has higher sensitivity; the system effects traction control sooner.

*Note: The traction control system is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.

4 The instruments include 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.

A 12V DC outlet is located below the instrument panel is for ease of use and is ideal for powering a navigation unit or charging your mobile device.

5 Distinctive vertical headlight configuration mirrors the infamous Hayabusa and GSX-R sportbikes

The rear brake light has been changed to LEDs to offer higher visibility and greater durability than standard bulbs.

The seat is shaped for comfort and the sidewalls have a high-grip texture. The seat height has also been lowered compared to previous years so riders can easily put their feet on the ground.

Optional ADV accessories made specifically for the new V-Strom are available
