To turn your ride into an adventure…

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 easy as you scale mountains. Roar down new highways. Explore your taste for discovery on roads long untraveled. Starting now, the planet is your neighborhood.

The 2015 V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure was redesigned from the ground up last year and features many improvements over the previous V-Strom 1000. 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, magneto, 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!

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

More than a decade ago, Suzuki developed the V-Strom 650. The motorcycle offered incredible versatility, comfort, and a fun to ride character. The well-balanced package included an incredibly versatile V-twin engine and lightweight aluminum chassis. Sharing the spirit of the globally successful V-Strom 650 ABS, the all-new, V-Strom 1000 will deliver fun, excitement and versatility to the open class rider who seeks a new world of motorcycling adventure.

*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.



2015 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

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 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.

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 riding experience will be further enhanced with these new features to satisfy even the most savvy adventure motorcyclists.

Strong, rider-friendly Engine:

A totally redesigned, liquid-cooled 1000cc V-twin engine produces effortless acceleration along with a strong V-twin rumble.

Lightweight, well-balanced Chassis:

Slim and lightweight aluminum frame, thickly padded seat and an adjustable windscreen provides an easy, comfortable, and fun to ride character.

Brake and Suspension:

Performance-inspired radial mount front brake caliper with Antilock Brake System provides riders confidence in braking on various road conditions. The V-Strom 1000 ABS also features an inverted front fork and an easy to adjust single shock style rear suspension.

Distinctive Styling Design:

Inspired by the 1988 DR750S—Suzuki’s first big on/off-road machine—the V-Strom 1000 features bold and distinctive styling to create an unmatched presence.

Advanced Traction Control System:

Suzuki’s advanced traction control system is equipped for enhanced sport riding, performance, and the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence.

Luggage System:

An all new luggage system was designed and tested in harmony with the big V-Strom’s overall development. The luggage system provides easy installation, a narrow overall width when installed, and a clean look when detached.



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

 

Go your own way on a road less traveled. Open a map, close your eyes, and point a finger. Then saddle up. Command every highway and byway with cargo and comfort that bring distant horizons well within your reach.
