Suzuki 2019 V-Strom 1000XT Adventure Motorcycle – Features and Price
The liquid-cooled 1037cc, 90-degree V-cylinder engine has powerful engine performance while meeting global emissions requirements without reducing horsepower. The five-axis inertial measurement unit (IMU) provides spatial vehicle information for the innovative motion trajectory anti-lock brake and combined brake system. The versatile, adjustable lighting dashboard provides extensive vehicle information and helps to select the Suzuki traction control system mode.
The slender fairing has vertically stacked headlights, manually adjustable windshields, and the iconic Suzuki DR-Big styling, bringing real adventure, style, and real-world functionality. The sturdy and flexible chassis includes a sturdy attachment rod, a center stand, a heated handle, and a Suzuki aluminum pressure gauge. It can be easily turned on and off, so the Suzuki 2019 V-Strom 1000XT Adventure Motorcycle can tour in seconds.
The four-stroke, liquid-cooled, 1037cc, 90-degree, V-cylinder DOHC engine is designed to provide excellent performance over the entire power range. Because the engine has smooth power pulses, the 90-degree L-shaped twin design offers a perfect principal balance, so there is no need for any balance shaft or rubber installation. Pistons are engineered using FEM analysis to achieve the desired stiffness and weight. The dual throttle body with the Suzuki Dual Throttle (SDTV) system provided accurate throttle response and increased torque in the low to medium speed range, while still maintaining optimal performance.
The EFI system uses a 10-hole injector on each throttle body to improve fuel atomization, thereby achieving excellent combustion efficiency and fuel-efficient fuel consumption. The advanced 32-bit ECM also runs automatic idle speed control (ISC), which improves cold start and stabilizes the engine idle speed. The ISC of V-Strom 1000 has Suzuki’s low-speed assist function, which can seamlessly adjust the engine speed during take-off and low-speed driving. It provides smooth power and helps reduce the possibility of cyclists stalling. The compact single muffler exhaust structure reduces weight and lowers the center of gravity, thereby improving handling and operability.
The Suzuki exhaust control (SET) servo-controlled butterfly valve in the intermediate exhaust tube helps to increase torque, response, and acceleration, especially in the low to medium speed range. The exhaust of the V-Strom 1000 has a pair of on-line catalysts, while the previous model had only one incentive to achieve sufficient emission control levels while maintaining flow to maintain engine performance. The most advanced transistor digital ignition system promotes complete combustion by igniting the mixture at the ideal moment.
Each cylinder is equipped with dual iridium type spark plugs to provide more condensed and hotter sparks, but the service life is longer than conventional spark plugs. The Suzuki Clutch Assist System SCAS; manages six-speed, near-ratio output. By enabling a small amount of clutch slip to achieve a smooth downshift, the system works like a slip clutch. It can be used as a supporting clutch, making the clutch lever light and precise.
Advanced Electronic Functions
This advanced ABS can adjust the brake pressure when riding upright and other weight when the motorcycle is tilted to both sides, so the braking force matches the available traction. Also, the combined system can apply rear brake pressure when the front brake pressure reaches a certain point to help stabilize the vehicle. It increases stability and maneuverability when turning.
Unless an anti-lock braking or combined brake function is activated, the rider will usually independently control the front and rear brakes. Thanks to an all-new advanced ABS control unit, the amount of rebound from the anti-lock function to the joystick and pedal is significantly reduced. Suzuki’s traction control system allows the rider of the Suzuki 2019 V-Strom 1000XT Adventure Motorcycle to control the throttle with greater confidence under various riding conditions.
The traction control system continuously controls the front and rear wheel speeds, throttle opening, engine speed, and gearbox position. By adjusting the ignition timing and air delivery, the engine output is quickly reduced when wheel slip is detected. The rider can choose one of three modes (1, 2, and OFF). Methods 1 and 2 differ insensitivity. Formula 1 has lower sensitivity; it allows a certain degree of rear wheel rotation to achieve the right road conditions. Plan 2 has higher sensitivity; the system can perform traction control faster and is suitable for harsh road conditions.
The unique fairing design is achieved by a straight molding line from the tip of the beak to the fuel tank. It is a bright and definite improvement to the Suzuki DR-Big inspired look. The advanced chassis is the basis for a compact, lightweight adventure package that provides comfort and enjoyment for various riders. The aluminum double beam frame is designed using the latest FEM analysis technology. Compared with the previous generation V-Strom, it is more reliable and has a 13% weight reduction.
The fuel tank features the carrying capacity of 5.3 gallons, and the seat connection in the rear seat has become thinner, making the driver feel comfortable. The side of the place uses a high grip texture cover. V-Strom’s slender chassis thanks to the new narrow V-twin engine design and decorative seats, makes it easier for the rider’s legs to reach the ground than other models of the same class. The 43 mm of KYB inverted front fork provides a sporty yet comfortable riding experience under various conditions. The fork legs have adjustable spring preload and compression and rebound damping force regulators.
Single-impact, link-type rear suspension with rebound damping force adjustment and remote manual spring pretension adjuster. Spoke wheels have durable anodized aluminum rims and stainless-steel spokes. These sturdy tires are equipped with tubeless dual-purpose radial tires, enough to cope with a real adventure. The large-diameter tapered handle has a large damping handguard, which can provide economical comfort and reduce vibration. The lower hood, sturdy attachment rod, and center console provide protection and convenience.
The Suzuki 2019 V-Strom 1000XT Adventure Motorcycle is equipped with Suzuki’s new ADV-style 37-liter aluminum pan frame, which can be driven anytime and anywhere. It can be connected to a powder-coated stainless-steel frame. These new skirts are made of 1.5mm-thick aluminum plates, with super-strong stables rivet technology, and have many functions. It includes a hinged cover that can stay in place when opened, internal and external fixing points, and a stainless-steel latch with key Lock and quick-release hardware. These pressure gauges are made of rubber sealing caps, which are waterproof and have a powder coating inside to avoid aluminum stains on the cargo.
The charging system uses a reliable three-phase stator with an open regulator/rectifier, which reduces mechanical resistance and heat while producing higher output at lower engine speeds. LED indicators include ABS and traction control alarms, as well as a freeze warning icon. The alarm and air temperature display warn of possible icy road conditions. Riders can use the left handlebar switch to switch between traction control mode and LCD reading. The left handlebar switch can easily reset the trip meter.
The 12V DC power socket can be conveniently located under the dashboard. This fused SAE socket is best for powering GPS units or charging mobile devices. The new bright halogen 65/55-watt headlights have the unique vertical configuration seen on Hayabusa and GSX-R sports motorcycles. The rear taillights and brake lights use LEDs to provide higher visibility and excellent durability. Turn signal lights use bright incandescent bulbs and transparent amber bulbs to ensure traffic.
A variety of Genuine Suzuki Accessories for Suzuki 2019 V-Strom 1000XT Adventure Motorcycle owners are available, including different sizes of top boxes, auxiliary lights, high and low seats, and a variety of Suzuki logo clothing. An additional lock-shaped traveling cup that matches the bike’s ignition key is included, so you can add a Suzuki accessory suitcase (such as a 35L top box) and efficiently perform the same essential operation. The key used in the enclosed aluminum triangle is different from the motorcycle ignition key.
