The Look of Adventure
The lines and contours of the V-Strom 1000 ABS combine to communicate the bike’s unparalleled adventure-touring credentials. Cast your eye over the bodywork and you will appreciate how black and silver details complement the lines and contours to communicate ruggedness and quality. Even the headlights and tail light contribute to the look of adventure. The headlights have 55W and 65W bulbs in Suzuki’s hallmark vertical configuration. And the tail light has LEDs, which are exceptionally reliable—a reassuring benefit when you are exploring far from home. The bike’s unmistakable looks were inspired by Suzuki’s first-ever big on/off-road motorcycle, the 1988 DR-BIG (DR750S). A signature detail echoing that classic adventure bike is the front beak, which signals to the world that the new V-Strom carries Suzuki DNA.
