Adventure Models

Renowned for their reliability and value, Suzuki’s V-STROM models have attracted many riders who use their motorcycles for touring, commuting, and exploring new trails and roads with spirited performance. These are touchstone motorcycles balanced with a natural riding position, comfortable ergonomics and a flexible engine character that produce riding excitement during daily commutes, cross-country trips or a high-mile adventure.

V-STROM 1050XT and V-STROM 1050XT Adventure

Suzuki V-STROM 1050XT

The 2022 V-STROM 1050XT and the V-STROM 1050XT Adventure models return with the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.). These V-STROMs lead the Adventure category in technology as this advanced suite of features is interconnected to an engine control module (ECM) via a Controller Area Network (CAN) wire harness that quickly transmits information from a six-direction, three-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU). This IMU measures six directions of movement along three axes (as compared to the five directions measured on the previous generation). The IMU detects pitch, roll and yaw movement based on the motorcycle’s position, movement and acceleration. Other key technologies include: 

  • Traction control with four sensitivity modes, Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (S-DMS) and cruise control that effectively maintains road speed through the Ride-by-Wire electronic throttle bodies
  • Adjustable motion track antilock and combined brake system includes a hill hold control system to aid the rider when stopped on an incline
  • Slope dependent control system helps manage braking force to avoid rear wheel lift when riding downhill
  • Load dependent control system monitors and retains braking force information to optimize braking force when riding with a passenger or heavy cargo
  • Each element of S.I.R.S. helps provide V-STROM 1050XT riders with stress-free use and convenience during long-distance adventures, commuting,or pleasure riding.

The V-STROM 1050XT and V-STROM 1050XT Adventure’s S.I.R.S. electronic suite with key features that makes Adventure touring enjoyable, such as:

  • The S-DMS is a three-mode system that lets the rider select the engine’s power delivery characteristic to match riding ability and conditions. Working in concert with the traction control system, S-DMS permits peak power in each mode while changing the nature of the power delivery. 
    • A Mode: provides sharp throttle response
    • B Mode: provides a moderate throttle response
    • C Mode: provides the softest throttle response of the three modes.
  • The cruise control system maintains the selected road speed without the rider having to hold the throttle open. A button on the right handlebar control can be pressed to put cruise control into standby, and a rocker-style selector switch on the left handlebar control lets the rider adjust the speed up or down. Cruise control function icons and indicators are located on the instrument panel.

The V-STROM 1050XT comes with an adjustable, wind-tunnel developed windscreen, handguards, a two-piece seat with height adjustability for the rider’s section, plus a rugged accessory bar and center-stand and much more. The 1050XT has an exciting color scheme: Metallic Oort Gray with a sophisticated Glass Sparkle Black.

The 2022 V-STROM 1050XT Adventure arrives with a recognizable Suzuki color scheme of Champion Yellow and Glass Sparkle Black with silver and blue accents plus gold-anodized rims on the spoke-style, tubeless wheels. Added to the 1050XT’s impressive standard equipment list is a set of Suzuki’s quick release 37L aluminum panniers, LED fog lights and heated hand grips.
