The 2024 V-STROM 1050DE models are engineered so you can conquer the unexpected. Continuing the reputation of a reliable sports adventure tourer, the V-STROM 1050DE delivers a stronger connection between rider and machine.
The V-STROM 1050DE’s proven V-twin engine rides in a chassis with significant ground clearance to accommodate a 21-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke-style wheels with Dunlop Adventure tires. Compared to the base V-STROM 1050, the DE has a longer rake and wheelbase for better handling on gravel roads and dirt trails, a longer suspension stroke to better absorb bumps on rough surfaces, as well as wide steel foot pegs and a large diameter tapered-aluminum handlebar.
Thanks to the renowned Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.), V-STROM 1050DE riders have even more comfort and control over varied terrain and conditions. The 5-inch color TFT LCD multi-function instrument panel clearly displays the S.I.R.S. settings that include a Gravel (G) mode in the Suzuki Traction Control System* and the ability to switch off the rear ABS**. The V-STROM 1050DE further emphasizes the aggressive look of its Suzuki Dakar-inspired styling with its unique front fender, aluminum engine protector, and rugged accessory bar.
No other Adventure motorcycle can match the 2024 V-STROM 1050DE’s emphasis on all-terrain capability with the value and performance that is synonymous with the name “V-Strom”.
*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. Traction control cannot prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
**Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
