1Password: respect

In this delicate phase of slow and progressive return to normality, Suzuki attaches great importance to the fact that the events of the V-STROM Tour 2020 and the related test rides take place in conditions of absolute safety, as well as within the limits of the law. “Respect” is the key word through which the Suzuki network adapts to the ministerial protocols on the occasion of the stages of the Tour, as well as in every other phase of its activity. The Kanji "Kei", which in Japanese means precisely "respect with the heart", summarizes the philosophy that has always guided Suzuki and its relationship with the customer, which today takes on unprecedented shades. Suzuki dealerships scrupulously follow the rules that limit the flow of people in the rooms and observe all the essential hygiene and health regulations to ensure maximum protection for workers and customers.

During the V-Strom Tours, as already happens in the daily working activities of the dealerships, some important safety rules will be respected:

  • maintaining safety distances;
  • use of Personal Protective Equipment by the staff and all participants;
  • provision of an alcoholic disinfectant solution inside the show room;
  • access and participation allowed only to people in good health, without fever or other symptoms.

The precautions taken will certainly not prevent participants from experiencing intense emotions and being in a friendly atmosphere, in the name of an authentic passion for two wheels.

4The Enduro Tourer par excellence

The V-STROM 1050XT catches the eye with a sleek silhouette, which has as its distinctive feature that beak front that Suzuki first introduced in the late 107s, adopted over time by many other manufacturers. Observed closely, the V-STROM denotes an obsessive attention to finishes: details such as the thin LED arrows, the aluminum frame that supports the windshield with height-adjustable windshield or the spoked rims, on which tubeless tires are mounted, satisfy lovers of details and live up to the best Japanese tradition. Once on board you will discover how the solid rubber-coated footpegs, the variable section aluminum handlebars and the two-level adjustable saddle define a perfect riding position for riders of all sizes. The posture you assume allows you to have total mastery in every situation and to make the most of the qualities of the chassis, which relies on a double aluminum beam frame and fully adjustable suspension, and the over 1050 hp delivered by the twin-cylinder engine. The rider can choose how to exploit his generous torque by selecting one of the three mappings available with the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector. The standard equipment of the V-STROM XNUMXXT includes many other electronic devices that enhance driving practicality and safety, improve control and maximize driving pleasure. The standard equipment includes cruise control, traction control that can be adjusted on three levels and can be deactivated, the PartiFacile hill start assistance and the FrenaInPIega and FrenaSicuro systems. The first is an intelligent and adjustable ABS on two levels, which varies its intervention logic according to the angle of the curve. The second system, on the other hand, doses and distributes braking based on the load detected and the risk of lifting the rear wheel on a descent. All the devices are managed in an integrated way by the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System, which communicates with a Bosch inertial platform capable of monitoring the movements of the bike in six directions along three axes.

Suzuki finally offers many series accessories that rivals usually offer only for a fee, such as the aluminum crankcase guards, the hand guards, the central stand and the engine guard tubes, all elements that contribute to making the V-STROM1050XT a faithful and unstoppable travel companion, always ready to face the roads and the paths of the whole world.
