Suzuki V-Strom Performance, Power, & Engine Specs
The V-Strom certainly draws attention on the road due to its loud and energetic performance, thanks to the 1037cc 4-Stroke Liquid-Cooled 90 Degree V-Twin engine. This engine comes paired with a 6-speed constant mesh transmission with a wet, multi-plate type clutch. The engine includes the Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve digital fuel injection, which maintains air intake while improving the high combustion efficiency for a better throttle response and increased low- to mid-range torque.
Suspension & Brakes
Not only does the Suzuki V-Strom deliver an impressive performance, but it’s simply fun to ride with its handling and the bouncy suspension. The front includes the Inverted Coil Spring Oil Damped suspension, with Tokico 4-piston caliper twin disc brakes. The rear of the V-Strom includes the Link Type Single Shock Coil Spring Oil Damped suspension, and the Nissin 2-piston single disc brakes, which provide extra control and stability when maneuvering around tight corners.
Street Bike Dimensions
The 2018 Suzuki V-Strom has a large and commanding stature with a stylish appearance. The bike is 89.8 inches long and 36.6 inches wide with a seat height of 33.5 inches, which not only adds to the enjoyment with a low-to-the-ground position, but gives you a great vantage point for the road ahead. The bike itself is 57.9 inches tall and includes a 61.2-inch wheelbase and a 6.5-inch ground clearance. The bike weighs 511 pounds, which makes it lighter and more agile than most bikes in its class.
