2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike – Features and Specs

Engine Features

The 1037cc, 90-degree, D.O.H.C., liquid-cooled V-twin engine achieves global emissions compliance while producing more horsepower at the same torque and fuel efficiency.

As the engine produces a continuous power pulse, the 90-degree V-twin design provides ideal core balance, eliminating the need for balance shafts or rubber mounts.

F.E.M. analysis was used in engineering large-bore, high-compression pistons to achieve ideal stiffness, weight, and improved stability.

These pistons operate within cylinder bores coated with Suzuki Composite Electrochemical Material (S.C.E.M.), integrated into the upper crankcase for superior heat dissipation, reduced weight, excellent durability, and reduced friction.

To maximize engine power and save fuel consumption, intake and exhaust camshaft overlap is reduced, and valve lift time is longer.

The V-STROM 1050DE and 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike are the first Suzuki motorcycles to be equipped with hollow sodium-filled exhaust valves. By reducing combustion chamber temperatures, these valves increase flow efficiency and stability.

Better balancing the relationship between throttle action and engine output characteristics, the new ride-by-wire electronic throttle system uses a powerful 32-bit E.C.M. to manage the action of the throttle valves.

The 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike’s electronic throttle mechanism completely idles a permanent engine in all situations.

The 10-hole fuel injectors in each cylinder are located downstream of the throttle body intake manifold. This arrangement allows for more excellent fuel atomization, which reduces fuel consumption and improves combustion efficiency.

The air cleaner box contributes to the V-Twin engine’s distinctive power characteristics by increasing torque through specially designed, extended intake funnels at low speeds.

The transistorized digital ignition system ignites the mixture at the right time and independently fires the two spark plugs in each cylinder head for complete combustion.

With a low center of gravity and single silencer exhaust design, the equipment is easy to handle, operate, and mount.

The Suzuki Pulsed Secondary Air Injection (PAIR) system matches the efficient exhaust. It injects fresh air into the exhaust ports to meet various U.S. and international pollution regulations without compromising performance.

To handle high engine output, the 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike’s radiator has 15% more cooling capacity (compared to the previous-generation V-Strom 1000). A cooling fan with a thermostat controls the coolant temperature.

Where the engine and oil filter meet, you will find the liquid-cooled oil cooler. This lightweight, space-saving cooler lowers the temperature of the lubricating oil while taking up less space than conventional oil coolers.

The water pump case, clutch cover, magneto cover, and cylinder head cover are painted with a durable bronze finish to contrast the black crankcase.

Engine components, such as the clutch cover, are protected by replaceable plastic to avoid scratching the rider’s boots.


Suzuki decided to take a new approach to the tried-and-true chassis architecture for the 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike, giving customers the option of customization based on riding style or intended purpose.

The 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike retains the bold trim design inspired by the dual-sport DR-Big and Suzuki’s storied DR-Z Dakar racer. The distinctive off-road beak design, first introduced by Suzuki, is now an essential component of contemporary adventure-style motorcycles.

The 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike’s beak has been enhanced with new body colors and decorations. It flows into a redesigned, smaller windscreen with a distinctive rectangular shape and vertically stacked L.E.D. headlights. The headlamps illuminate road surfaces and surroundings, giving the rider a clear perspective of what lies ahead.

The 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike includes a unique small windscreen for adventure, which aims to increase visibility when riding on gravel roads and unpaved trails. Designed to reduce wind buffeting on the rider’s helmet, it is slightly thinner and more than three inches (80 mm) shorter than the V-STROM 1050 windscreen.

A valuable feature of the windscreen mount is a mounting bar just below the rider’s eye level. This bar is ideal for positioning accessories such as G.P.S. units for navigation.

The 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike’s aluminum handlebar has been widened by 1.57 inches, measuring 40 mm overall and 20 mm on each side. Compared to the V-STROM 1050 handlebar, this structure allows for greater flexibility and better shock absorption for comfort when riding in muddy conditions. It is cast in thick tubes made of soft-grade aluminum. The wide grip position also provides better control, especially when navigating rough terrain while standing on the foot pegs.

The rider can easily adjust the clutch and front brake levers for comfortable access thanks to adjustable knobs on both. Users can customize the gear shift and rear brake pedals according to their preferences.

The mirrors’ style blends well with the 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike and offers a great view of objects.

A revised subframe with more robust seat rails, battery, and rear fender bracket helps the V-STROM 1050DE Adventure better withstand the shocks of rough terrain.

The revised bottom shape increases stiffness and reduces weight by 1.5 pounds (706 g, or 37% less mass), so the rider’s seat height is fixed.

The 43mm K.Y.B. inverted front fork provides a smooth and controlled ride in various conditions. Spring preload, compression, and rebound damping force adjusters are on all fork legs.

The 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike features a revolutionary three-piece front fender assembly that combines the protection of MX bike-style fork guards with the performance of a traditional V-STROM fender.

Thanks to a rear shock with remote hydraulic spring preload adjustment, it takes just seconds for the passenger to modify the movement of the new cast aluminum swingarm. Additionally, rebound damping force adjustment is a feature of the single-shock, link-style rear suspension.

Due to suspension, front wheel diameter, and chassis geometry changes, the 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike has 1.0 inches more ground clearance than the V-STROM 1050. This enables the motorcycle to travel unevenly without the bottom of the frame coming into contact with the ground.

Dual discs with 310 mm floating mounts are matched with radial-mounted Tokico four-piston front brake calipers. These efficient calipers are paired with the MotionTrak Anti-lock and combination brake system.

The rear brake combines a 260mm outer diameter disc with a single piston caliper supplied by N.I.S.S.I.N for mighty stopping power and precise braking control at all road speeds.

For greater stability and control when riding on rough terrain, the 2023 V-STROM 1050DE Adventure Suzuki Bike’s 21-inch aluminum tube front rim (the rear wheel is tubeless) is equipped with spoke-style wheels.
