The list doesn’t end here. The new VStrom becomes the first Suzuki motorcycle to boast of a switchable traction control with two riding modes. While Mode 1 is for a more elating riding experience allowing a slight amount of wheelspin, Mode 2 on the other hand activates the traction control sensing even the slightest of wheelspin. ABS is offered as standard on the Tokico four-piston monobloc caliper mounted over the twin 310 mm front discs with a a single-piston caliper on the 260 mm rear disc.

Held together by an optimally balanced Twin-Spar aluminium alloy frame, damping duties on the new VStrom are taken care by fully adjustable gold anodized 43mm inverted front forks and a dial adjuster rear monoshock running on 19” ten spoke alloy wheels.
