Suzuki Motorcycle India will introduce the new V-Strom 1000 with subtle styling and feature updates in coming September. For 2017 model year, the bike will receive Suzuki’s Motion Track Brake and cornering ABS system. It will also get the low-rpm assist function, standard hand guards and optional luggage with a single-function key. However, the engine and suspension mechanism will remain unchanged. That means the 2017 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 will continue to use the 98bhp, 1,037cc V-Twin engine.
Globally, the motorcycle is available in two variants – Standard V-Strom 1000 and V-Strom 1000XT. Though, the Indian market is likely to receive the Suzuki V-Strom 1000XT version only. Unlike the standard model, the 2017 Suzuki V-Strom 1000XT gets spoked wheels, DID rims and larger diameter tapered handlebars. Aiming to strengthen its presence in the super premium bike segment, SMIL had introduced the Suzuki V Strom 1000 ABS in February 2014 at the Auto Expo. This adventure tourer sits on a lightweight aluminium chassis, and its updated version will continue to use the same platform. Most of the features will also be carried over from the current model.
