Suzuki Motorcycles stormed down on its competitors with the reveal of the new The V-Strom 1050XT Adventure bike. With the proliferation of mid-sized adventure and leisure bikes in the market, it was just a question of when it will be released. Today is the day of reckoning.

The V-Strom 1050XT is regarded by enthusiasts as having the most powerful powertrain in its category today. The famous V-Twin engine is categorized by a liquid-cooled, Dual-spark, DOHC engine, and also meets the required Euro 5 emission control standard. The technology also results in an impressive low fuel consumption of 4.9L/100km (20km.L)

What exactly is S.I.R.S?

Engineered with extreme usage in mind, the V-Strom comes with the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.), which makes it debut in Suzuki’s Big Bikes technology. The S.I.R.S. provides intelligent and comprehensive controls that will assist the rider in more difficult terrain, thereby increasing the bike’s agility while providing more safety.

The SIRS is a wide-ranging program feature that includes the following:

Equipped with a 6-position (Yaw, Roll, Pitch) that measures and applies proper brake pressure on each wheel.
Hill Hold Control System. holds the motorcycle on inclined roads for 30 seconds, provided that the transmission is in gear and brake is applied.
Slope Dependent Control System measures the degree of slope of the road that adjusts throttle response, brake pressure for more stability even on high speeds.
Cruise Control System is ideal for long drives. Can be activated between 80kph and 160kph. Can be manually adjusted either by button or throttle grip

Traction Control System (to enhance ease of use and convenience in touring and daily commute providing a worry-free riding experience.)

As you can see, the V-Strom offers the best ride in extreme conditions, whether it be on tarmac or rough terrain.

The whole aesthetic look of the V-Strom is derived from Suzuki’s legendary DR-Z desert racer and DR-BIG, giving it a more wild and sportier appearance. Combining these elements resulted in the ultimate in adventure riding.
