Suzuki V-Strom 1000 launched


With two-wheeler manufacturers on a launching spree to get flagship models into the Indian market, Suzuki has swung into action as well, launching its V-Strom 1000 adventure bike at the Auto Expo 2014.

The new bike is an adventure tourer and comes with styling unique to adventure class motorcycles. The high-placed headlight gives the bike a distinct appeal with a beaked front-end. The instrument cluster features multi-information display and high-quality switchgear with ride mode selection. Sporting black cladding around the tank, the bike imposes a masculine yet agile look. This new motorcycle gets an LED tail-light, with indicators showing off a honeycomb design. 
 
Moving on to mechanicals, the new bike is powered by a four-stroke, 1037cc, liquid-cooled and V-Twin engine, mated to a six-speed gearbox.
 
 It features an upright riding position with an adjustable wind screen. The motorcycle comes with inverted telescopic front forks, and a rear monoshock and braking power in the form of dual discs with a 110/80 x 19 tyre up front and a single disc on a 150/70 x 17 tyre at the rear, with ABS available as standard.
 
The V-Storm is brought to India through the CBU route and is priced at Rs. 15 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Bookings for the same have already commenced, with deliveries expected to start by the end of this month.
