The V-Strom 1000 ABS* is designed for unforgettable sport-adventure riding. It has a Suzuki fuel-injected, 90-degree V-twin engine tuned for incredible low-end and mid-range torque, so you can tap into thrilling acceleration in every gear. It is also equipped with traction control**, a key to its versatile capabilities. That performance is matched by a lightweight chassis and advanced suspension that provides remarkably crisp handling even on the tightest back roads.
*Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
**The Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and / or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip.
