Just a bit of weekend reading for you, here’s the latest variation on Suzuki’s popular V-Strom touring motorcycle;
Suzuki has launched a new V-Strom 1050XT Touring model, packing extra capacity for adventure.
With an RRP of £12,799, the V-Strom 1050XT Tour comes equipped with black, three piece aluminium luggage as standard, equating to a saving of £370 over the purchase of the individual items.
The rugged aluminium top box and panniers add 112 litres of storage capacity, to a machine that already boasts practicality as standard thanks to a centre stand, hand guards, 12V socket and USB port, height-adjustable seat, and adjustable screen.
Starting off on tricky, hilly junctions, especially when two-up and loaded with luggage can be difficult sometimes, even for experienced motorcyclists. But Suzuki are resolving that propblem. A comprehensive suite of electronics includes two modes of lean-angle sensitive ABS, a three-mode traction control system (that can be switched off), three engine power modes, cruise control, hill hold assist, and linked brakes that feature a slope-dependent and load-dependent, which optimise brake pressure to maintain control when braking downhill, or when equipped with luggage or a pillion.
