The V-Strom 1050 will be available from just £109 per month when it arrives next spring, with the new adventure machine now added to Suzuki’s Flexible Finance scheme and dealerships already taking deposits.
Displayed in the UK for the first time at last month’s Motorcycle Live following its reveal at Eicma in Milan, Italy, the V-Strom 1050’s inclusion on Suzuki’s finance scheme means customers can tailor a deal to suit their needs and secure one of the first bikes to arrive in March.
With a three-mode traction control system and three engine modes, a deposit or trade-in of £2,250 means the V-Strom 1050 can be ridden for £109 per month over three years. For £129 per month over the same period with a £2,360 deposit, customers can choose the V-Strom 1050XT. The flagship V-Strom uses Suzuki’s Intelligent Ride System and a six axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) to manage lean-angle sensitive ABS and linked brakes – which support slope-dependent and load-dependent control and hill hold – as well as boasting cruise control and a two-mode ABS system.
Both versions of the new V-Strom use a 1037cc V-Twin engine, which produces 107PS and is wrapped in an aluminium frame. Suspension comes from fully-adjustable 43mm front forks from KYB, with a preload and rebound damping-adjustable rear shock. Brakes are radial Tokicos biting twin 310mm discs.
