V-STROM 1050XT WINS MOTO JOURNAL MOTORCYCLE OF THE YEAR AWARD

V-STROM 1050XT WINS MOTO JOURNAL 

MOTORCYCLE OF THE YEAR AWARD

The new V-Strom 1050XT has picked up Moto Journal's award for motorcycle of the year, with a rating of 91 out 100.

The respected French title handed the award of moto de l'année to the new-for-2020 Suzuki V-Strom after a thorough evaluation focussing on the bike's ability, spec, and price.

The new V-Strom 1050XT uses the proven 1037cc V-twin engine from Suzuki, but meets Euro5 emissions regulations while increasing peak power to 107.4PS (79kW), a 7% increase over the previous generation.

And while the design harks back to the original and iconic DR Big and pays homage to that original adventure machine – both bikes were designed by the same person – a thoroughly modern and comprehensive suite of electronics dubbed Suzuki Intelligent Rider System (SIRS), sees the V-Strom 1050XT equipped with cruise control, lean angle-sensitive ABS, two ABS modes, slope-dependent control, load-dependent control, and traction control, plus a ride-by-wire throttle and three power modes.
