The V-Strom 1000XT is driven by a powerful and versatile 90-degree, DOHC, V-Twin. The strong, rider-friendly nature of this engine gives effortless acceleration no matter what the riding situation or the presence of a pillion rider. The 100 PS maximum output at 8,000rpm will give the rider with an exciting riding experience, while the optimally weighted magneto and flywheel helps to produce a thick layer of torque of 103Nm as low as 4,000rpm, resulting in a tremendously usable character allowing the rider to always have the required output and not needing to downshift when overtaking on motorways. Furthermore, the engine’s advanced electronic control systems and the attempt to reduce mechanical losses, achieve a low fuel consumption.
Light and easy
With a unique capacity of 1037cc, the V-Strom 1000XT has achieved an optimum balance of plentiful power and a light weight character. The light weight contributes to the ease of manoeuvrability and a sportier ride while also supporting low fuel consumption. Touring with 1200cc adventure models will make the rider realise not only that the V-Strom 1000XT has no difficulty managing the pace, but also the advantages of its light weight character.
Suzuki Clutch Assist System
Equipped with the Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS), the clutch acts as a slipper clutch system when changing down rapidly, while always providing light use of the lever. SCAS is an advanced clutch system supporting both sporty riding and less fatigue on long rides.
The unique Suzuki Exhaust Tuning (SET) system uses a butterfly valve in the exhaust pipe to optimise the exhaust pressure for running conditions, thereby boosting torque at low revs (a benefit for acceleration) and enhancing throttle response. There are now two catalysers positioned in a tandem configuration achieving an effective level of emission control, this allows the engine to meet emissions standards while maintaining performance levels.
The open-type rectifier disconnects the magneto when it is not generating electricity to reduce mechanical losses, resulting in stronger torque at low and mid-range engine speeds. Plus, a 32-bit engine control module gives precise engine management so it enhances fuel economy and allows more linear throttle response.
