1. What does the MACHI kit include?
The complete equipment of the MACHI version underlines the urban and chic side of the personality of the V-STROM 1050. At the same time, its globetrotter character stands out, which has earned this model the nickname of “The Master of Adventure”.

The V-STROM 1050 MACHI can be purchased in three colors, a gritty black livery, a refined shade of gray and a sporty white variant, all capable of highlighting the bronze-colored finish of the engine.
2. Citizen of the world
If the XT version, at the top of the V-STROM 1050 range, is inspired by legendary off-road ancestors and also looks to the world of raids, the new MACHI shows the more road side of Suzuki's Sport Enduro Tourer. Its different attitude is made evident by the presence of elegant ten-spoke light alloy wheels. The rear one has a diameter of 17 inches and the front one 19 inches, which allow you to tackle any path, from the cobblestones of the urban centers to the dirt roads.
The technical picture, on the other hand, is that of one motorcycle, capable of guaranteeing extraordinary performance in any condition with extreme naturalness. The chassis features fully adjustable KYB suspension and a stiff twin-beam aluminum frame, supporting a lively Euro 5 V-twin engine capable of over 107hp. Through the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector the rider can choose at any time between three different mappings, which correspond to as many output curves, for a smoother or more decisive response to each rotation of the Ride-by-wire accelerator. There are also three levels of intervention that can be set for the electronic traction control, which can be deactivated if necessary and uses the same phonic wheels as the ABS anti-blocking system to monitor the speed of the wheels at all times.
The V-STROM 1050 MACHI also features technologies that make driving easier even in the most difficult situations. The Low RPM Assist, for example, regulates the engine speed when starting or at reduced speed, while the Suzuki Clutch Assist System gives the clutch a slipper function, limiting reactions during decisive downshifts. These devices are useful to reduce the effort in driving and to make the ride smoother when moving in congested traffic or tackling mixed media in a brilliant way. On the motorway, the V-STROM 1050 MACHI can instead rely on excellent protection from the air thanks to the hand guards and the windshield that can be adjusted to three positions, under which a powerful rectangular LED headlight is mounted.
For the rest, the range of accessories extends the range of action of the V-STROM 1050 MACHI. The 55-liter top case is ideal for all those who see the bike as a formidable tool of freedom and allows you to carry with you every day - in a dry and safe compartment - anti-rain or gym equipment, as well. like a laptop bag. Its large capacity also allows you to easily load your luggage for a medium-haul trip, perhaps as a couple, or to arrange two helmets integral.
