Suzuki V Strom 1050 is set to debut in India in October 2022, with a price tag of between Rs 14,00,000 and Rs 15,00,000. Triumph Tiger 900, Honda Africa Twin, and Harley-Davidson PAN America 1250 are three current bikes that are similar to the V Strom 1050. BMW F850 GS, which will be launched in India in March 2022, is a bike that is similar to the V Strom 1050.
The Suzuki V-Strom 1050 is the latest version of the Japanese brand’s adventure touring motorcycle in the litre class, which was unveiled at the 2019 EICMA Show in Milan. In essence, it’s the V-Strom 1000’s successor, with all-new styling, a slew of new features, and a revised powertrain.

Its design is inspired by the 1980s’ DR Big 750 and 800 adventure bikes. It has a new square-shaped headlamp with a taller windscreen, and the curvy fuel tank of the previous model has been replaced with a boxy tank. Furthermore, the faring on the beak now appears to be beefier. Suzuki has also added more features, such as a full-color LCD display to replace the dated-looking semi-digital instrument cluster. It also gets a new ECU with a faster processor, better traction control, and three riding modes.

Despite the fact that the new V-Strom 1050 is still powered by a 1037cc V-twin engine, the power and torque figures have been increased to 105bhp and 100Nm. The engine now complies with Euro5/BS6. The V-Strom is available in two trim levels: standard with road tyres and XT with dual-purpose tyres. The latter also includes a few extra pieces of gear that make it more adventure-ready. Inverted forks and monoshocks are used for suspension, while disc brakes are used on both ends of the vehicle, with dual-channel ABS as standard.

In India, Suzuki only offers the V-Strom 1000 standard variant, which costs Rs 13.45 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). The 1050 model is expected to arrive next year, and it’s unclear whether the company will only bring the standard model or also the XT trim.
