2021 Suzuki V-Strom 1050A : EXPLORATION HAS NO LIMITS.
Introducing the 2021 Suzuki V-Strom 1050A…
The distinctive styling incorporates elements of both Suzuki’s legendary DR-Z desert racer and the large off-road model DR-BIG. The characteristic beak design first adopted by Suzuki stays true to Suzuki’s heritage while also further evolving the design to be more aggressive and bolder for the new generation V-STROM.

DESIGNING THE V-STROM 1050/XT
There is a new design featuring a vertically stacked headlight with a unique rectangular shape. The headlight clearly illuminates the road surfaces and shoulders for excellent visibility. The headlight unit is lightweight for excellent balance with the overall weight of the vehicle. The new model is equipped with aluminum tapered handlebars. The shape enhances the off-road style feel and is lightweight while maintaining high rigidity. The cylinder head, magneto cover, water pump case and clutch covers are finished with a bronze color for a beautiful contrast with the black engine body.
SUZUKI DRIVE MODE SELECTOR (SDMS)*
Suzuki Drive Mode Selector is a system that allows the rider to select from three different output characteristic modes (A, B, and C).*Not available for 35kw specs. The rider can use the instrument panel display and the rocker switch on the left handlebar control to change the menu and rider-aid settings. The left handlebar switch can also reset the trip meters.
TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM
An updated traction control system is used to let the rider be in control with more confidence in diverse conditions with less stress and fatigue. The traction control mode is increased to three modes plus off mode for diverse road conditions, or to match the rider’s preference more. The traction control system continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speed, throttle position, crank position and gear position. When wheel spin is detected, the system quickly controls power output by managing ignition timing and air delivery.
Note: Traction control system is not a substitute for rider’s throttle control under the various conditions, and traction control cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when entering turns, or while braking, and it does not control front wheel traction.
RIDE-BY-WIRE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE SYSTEM
Much simpler, lighter and more compact than the previous mechanical throttle. There are no mechanical cables used and one is independently installed to both the front and rear cylinder. Ride-by-wire electronic throttle control system offers a light feeling of control that is natural and linear like a conventional throttle.
THE REFINED V-TWIN ENGINE
The liquid-cooled, DOHC, 1037cm3 90° V-twin engine further evolved. It meets new Euro 5 emission control standards while achieving high power of 79.0kW / 8,500rpm while maintaining low fuel consumption (4.9L / 100km). Also, a 35kW version has been added for the European Driving License Directive. The engine delivers deep rumble in the low rpm range, strong and linear torque in the mid-range and a maximum horsepower in the high rpm range with a smooth run up. This refined engine will support the rider to enjoy various situations such as city and rural roads, winding passes, flat dirt roads and highways.
Note: Actual fuel economy may differ owing to differences in conditions such as the weather, road, rider behavior and maintenance.
LOW RPM ASSIST
The Low RPM assist system monitors and automatically raise the idle speed when taking off from a stop or when riding slowly. Using the electronic throttle, a even finer level control is made possible. The system makes it easier for the rider to pull away from a standstill or maneuver in heavy traffic or through a crowded parking lot.
SUZUKI EASY START SYSTEM
The Suzuki Easy Start System allows the rider to easily start the engine with a single press of the starter button in any weather conditions or engine state—whether cold or hot. There is no need to continue to press the starter button until the starter ignites and turns the engine.
SUZUKI CLUTCH ASSIST SYSTEM (SCAS)
The Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) works as an assist clutch to make the lever easier to pull while transmitting the power output, reducing fatigue on long touring.
ELECTRONICAL THROTTLE BODY
Now, ride-by-wire throttle system is simpler, lighter and more compact than the previous model, with a larger bore (49mm compared to 45mm of the previous model). The throttle body is independently installed to both the front and rear cylinder. Each throttle body has a single butterfly valve, allowing each to be opened and closed using its own independent motor for precise
DUAL SPARK TECHNOLOGY
Each cylinder head is equipped with two iridium spark plugs. The ignition timing is controlled independently contributing to high combustion efficiency, higher power output, a more linear throttle response, easier engine startup and a more stable idle
LIQUID-COOLED OIL COOLER
Uses a new liquid-cooled oil cooler. Located where the oil filter is attached, it takes up less space and is both lightweight and compact. The liquid-cooled oil cooler provides flawless lubrication for a more powerful engine.
MULTI-FUNCTION INSTRUMENT CLUSTER
The instrument panel presents all required information on a full LCD screen using a clean and intuitive layout with information displayed in order of priority. Included in the display are the speedometer, tachometer (full pixel digital display), gear position indicator, odometer, trip meter (A, B), instantaneous fuel consumption, average fuel consumption, driving range, fuel level indicator, engine coolant temperature indicator, ambient air temperature indicator, clock, voltage meter, service reminder, SDMS mode, traction control mode, cruise control indicator, ABS mode, hill hold indicator, engine rpm indicator light, freeze indicator light, turn signal indicator light, high beam indicator light, traction control indicator light, ABS indicator light, and neutral indicator light.
DURABLE TWIN-SPAR ALUMINUM FRAME
The lightweight cast aluminum twin-spar frame realizes the optimal rigidity balance for stability and handling performance. The swingarm is also aluminum supporting the balance and light handling.
HEIGHT ADJUSTABLE WINDSCREEN
The windscreen reduces fatigue when riding at high speeds. Height is adjustable on the V-STROM 1050XT without any tools.
The seat has a front/rear separate design and is just the right firmness to provide a comfortable ride with less fatigue even on long rides. The height of the rider’s seat can be adjusted 20mm higher on the V-STROM 1050XT.
ALUMINUM TAPERED HANDLEBARS
The new model is equipped with aluminum tapered handlebars. The shape enhances the off-road style feel.
