2020 Suzuki V-Strom 1050 Specifications

By | May 5, 2020

Suzuki unveiled its new V-Strom 1050 line at the 2019 Milan show with an aggressive new look and expanded capabilities meant to make it easier to range hither and yon over a variety of surfaces. In addition to the new rally-style look, updated electronics and upgraded engine performance are part of the package for MY2020. The V-Strom 1050 serves as the platform for the top-shelf “XT” models but even the stock base model comes packed with upgraded electronics and net-new tech to make it attractive and competitive within the adventure bike market.


Underneath all the 2020 updates, the bones of the V-Strom are still familiar. The aluminum frame is the same as the previous model, and key geometry including the 61.2-inch (1,555mm) wheelbase is unchanged. Curb weight rises a fraction, from 511 pounds (232kg) to 520 pounds (236kg) for the base model. The XT weighs in at 545 pounds (247kg) without the XT Adventure’s detachable panniers in place.

The 5.3-gallon fuel capacity is also unchanged, as are wheel and tire size; 110/80R-19 at the front, 150/70R-17 rear.
