2010 Suzuki V-Strom 1000

All-round revolution.

With remarkable versatility, the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 offers exceptional sport-touring performance. It’s designed for you to make the most of every mile, whether you’re winding your way over a mountain pass or out for a long weekend sport-touring.

Presenting a bike so revolutionary it opened the door on an entirely new motorcycle category: Sport Enduro Tourer. City road, open road, it has the cornering clearance of a sportsbike, the cruising capability of a tourer.

A powerplant based on the proven TL1000, a textbook example of advance design that houses a pulsing 90° V-twin. A performance package rich in refinements, the aluminium twin-spar frame is lighter than steel frames. An upright seating position ensures optimum visibility, the 22-litre fuel tank gives you the riding range of a touring machine.

Engineered to have no limits, this all-rounder lets you live the adventure in your mind.


Suzuki’s V-Strom 1000, V-Strom 650 and V-Strom 650 ABS are the ultimate all-rounders, combining proven V-Twin performance with the practicality of a tourer.

The 2010 V-Strom range is now available, featuring bold new liveries and graphics for the popular models, among Suzuki’ss best-selling adventure tourers.

All three models combine trademark V-Twin grunt with the ‘go anywhere’ attitude and cruising capability of a tourer, fitted with an adjustable windscreen, upright riding position and large, 22-litre fuel tank.

With a 996cc, liquid-cooled, 90-degree V-Twin engine delivering strong power through its rev range, the 2010 model V-Strom 1000 has a striking new Black livery.

The ever-popular adventure tourer, the 654cc V-Strom 650 is now available in Black or Orange colour schemes, while the Anti-Lock Braking System-equipped V-Strom 650 ABS comes in Black or White.

996cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 90-degree V-Twin engine provides strong and accessible power throughout the rpm range for exhilarating performance.

Advanced digital engine management system featuring Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV), delivers optimum combustion efficiency for linear response, fuel economy and superior low-end torque, along with low emissions.
