At Le Mans, Suzuki introduced the new V-Strom 1000 and wants to fill her with the niche, between the large-1200s touring bikes and the smaller class.
Long as the Suzuki fans had to wait, but now she comes, the enduro from Hamamatsu – but not with the approximately 1,200 cubic centimeters of the competition. The Suzuki V-Strom 1000 is powered by a 100-hp 1000-V2.
This concept would Kyuji Akira, Suzuki, responsible for the markets in Europe, North America and Oceania, not in the poaching in the area of the BMW R 1200 GS or Triumph Tiger 800, but a very unique open up. And adds that it is practically were a new unit at the engine of the new Suzuki V-Strom 1000th This applies not only to crank and cylinder head with dual ignition, for clutch with anti-hopping function and parts of the transmission, but also for the piston and cylinder even after the bore of the previously known to the engine of the TL 1000-based Suzuki V2 to two millimeters to 100 mm grew.
With these basic parameters of the engine of the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 is to send a maximum torque of 103 Nm at 4000 r / min and 100 hp to the rear wheel. That would be a real asset, especially when you consider that the new Suzuki V-Strom 1000 with 228 kg should be whopping 8 pounds lighter than its predecessor. Again, the new V-Strom lined up in the middle between the 214 kg of a BMW F 800 GS and the 238 kg of a 1190 KTM Adventure.
New concept of the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 is also the latest generation Bosch ABS and the three-stage traction control that will even have the relationship with the GP bike. Be measured, according to Suzuki wheel speed, throttle position, crankshaft position and speed – and all four milliseconds. The skew remains outside. Is then governed entirely conventional ignition and the air supply.
Of the golden mean and the expense side. While the major cost 1200s Reiseenduros depending on equipment 14000-18000 euro and the small bikes are in the range 8500-11000 Euro, Akira Kyuji wants to offer the new V-Strom “somewhere 12000-13000 euro.”
