As far as price, according to initial V-Strom will be somewhat more affordable than the Kawasaki Versys, and the price is relying on the market and the variation array from 12,000 to 13,000 euros.
Presented for 2002, the Suzuki V-Strom 1000 has actually seen few changes over the past 11 years. Its popular brother or sister, the V-Strom 650 (aka Wee Strom), was presented for 2004 and has since outsold the 1000 3-to-1 (according to Suzuki, almost 195,000 V-Stroms have been sold around the world, 149,000 of which have actually been 650s). As the very best seller, the V-Strom 650 got a major overhaul initially, for 2012. 2 years later on, Suzuki is presenting an all-new V-Strom 1000.
After considerable research amongst V-Strom 1000 owners– a really faithful, singing group if there ever was one– Suzuki concentrated on a number of crucial areas: improving low-to-midrange power/torque, lowering bulkiness/weight, improving high-speed stability, updating the styling, and expanding the range of factory accessories, consisting of tough luggage.
The prominent beak on the brand-new 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 could seem like a me-too styling function that is shared by numerous of today’s journey bikes, Suzuki says it drew impact from its own 1988 Paris-Dakar rally racer, the DR-Z. Overall, the new 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 looks more slender and angular, right in line with its big-bore dualie rivals.
Suzuki has actually made lots of changes to the V-Strom’s liquid-cooled, 90-degree V-twin. It has a 2mm larger bore, up from 98mm to 100mm, bumping displacement from 996cc to 1,037 cc. Claimed output has actually enhanced from 95.5 horse power to 99.2 horse power and from 74.5 lb-ft of torque to 76 lb-ft. Not huge boosts in peak output, however Suzuki says the changed engine puts out more horsepower and torque in the reduced to midrange (peak torque, for instance, now gets to 4,000 rpm as opposed to 6,400)– precisely where journey exploring riders need it the most.
The engine maintains a DOHC, 4-valve layout and a 11.3:1 compression ratio, however the cylinder heads now have dual stimulate plugs and the fuel injection system uses Suzuki’s Dual Throttle Valve (SDTV) with more efficient 10-hole injectors. Like the GSX-R and Hayabusa sportbikes, the 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 gets the Suzuki Clutch Assist System, which utilizes a help function to lower clutch effort and a sandal function for smoother downshifts. Changing the previous dual mufflers is a single muffler with a brand-new Suzuki Exhaust Tuning valve that saves another 9.7 pounds.
The 2014 Suzuki V-Strom 1000 is the first Suzuki motorcycle ever to be equipped with traction control, which is basic together with ABS (which can’t be shut off). A toggle on the left cluster permits the rider to choose among 2 TC modes, or turn the system off. Mode 1 has less sensitivity and permits some rear wheel spin, while Mode 2 has more sensitivity and allows little to no slip.
More weight was saved in the cast aluminum twin-spar frame, which is 13 percent lighter yet has 33 percent higher torsional rigidity. The distance between the front axle and the swingarm pivot was shortened however the swingarm was made longer, leading to a somewhat longer wheelbase (61.2 inches vs 60.4 inches) for better high-speed stability. Changing the Showa fork on the previous model is a new KYB male-slider fork that’s totally adjustable; the rear shock gets changed settings and a remote preload adjuster. Radial-mount, four-piston Tokico front calipers provide more stopping power than the previous two-piston pin-slide calipers. The cast-aluminum 10-spoke wheels are also new.
Ergonomics and wind defense have actually been improved. The windscreen has three angle setups that can be adjusted by hand, as well as three height settings that can be altered with an Allen wrench. The handlebar and footpegs have been moved back, the passenger pegs have actually been repositioned, the tank is narrower between the knees, and the seat has even more padding however is narrower in front to make it much easier to reach the ground (seat height is slightly taller at 33.5 inches; an accessory low seat will be available). A new durable aluminum baggage rack and huge passenger grab manages add to the look and functionality of the brand-new V-Strom.
A brand-new instrument panel pairs an analog tach with a multifunction LCD display that can be readjusted for brightness and includes brand-new functions such as a gear position indication, fuel consumption/range, ambient temperature level, a freeze warning indication and a voltage meter.
Accessory baggage– a leading case and saddlebags– was developed in addition to the bike. The cases are no bigger than the handlebars, and the locks can be keyed to the ignition. A black-only Adventure model will likewise be offered with unique pricing on an accessory plan that includes hand guards, an exploring windscreen, engine guards, a skid plate and saddlebags with mounts (leading case sold independently).
