Travel any road, using a powerful and torquey engine, whilst enjoying the comfort of a well cushioned seat and wide protective screen. Go further with superior range thanks to the 20L fuel tank and impressive fuel economy. Excellence as standard with a bi-directional quickshifter, 5” colour TFT display, traction control and power modes. Discover new possibilities with the V-Strom 800RE Tour.
The 776cc parallel twin engine that powers the V-STROM 800RE delivers a fine balance of smooth, controllable power and freerevving performance you will enjoy on every outing, whether heading out for a long journey loaded with gear or simply enjoying daily rides around town. Designed to be powerful, efficient, rider-friendly and versatile, the engine features a 270-degree crank layout with a firing order that produces abundant torque and positive traction, as well as a pleasing rumble similar to that of a V-twin engine. The engine’s compact front-to-rear size contributes to achieving optimum weight distribution and chassis geometry, while it also helps position the hip point forward to provide you with an optimal riding position.

Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS)
Suzuki Clutch Assist System (SCAS) helps reduce fatigue on long rides and contributes to smooth shifting. It’s a blessing when riding in traffic, travelling long distances, or exploring trails. The system’s assist function helps efficiently transfer torque to the rear wheel when accelerating. Its slipper function delivers smoother deceleration when downshifting for better control that lets you ride with greater confidence.

Suzuki Cross Balancer
Developed specifically for the 776cc parallel twin engine, this patented* biaxial primary balancer suppresses vibration and contributes to smooth operation by positioning its two balancers equidistant at 90° to the crankshaft. Balancer No.1 cancels the primary vibration generated by the piston of the first cylinder, while balancer No.2 cancels the primary vibration of the second cylinder. Furthermore, placing the two balancers at 90° to the crankshaft with each positioned equidistant from the crankshaft cancels primary couple vibration, it also helps realise a lightweight powerplant that is more compact from front to rear.

Exhaust System
Instantly distinguishable by the striking look of its upswept silencer design, the 2-into-1 exhaust system is engineered to produce a pleasing note and maximise power output, whether enjoying a high-speed touring run or exploring rural roads at a more leisurely pace. As an added benefit, the system’s two-stage catalytic converter helps satisfy Euro 5 emissions standards.

Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS)
The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (SIRS) features a collection of advanced electronic systems developed to assist you and help in optimising performance characteristics to suit your changing riding needs and preferences. By making the V-STROM 800RE more controllable, predictable, and less tiring to operate, these systems help you ride with greater confidence, whether touring for long distances, carrying gear, or just heading out for an invigorating run on the weekend.

Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (SDMS)
You can choose among three different power output characteristic modes to best match varying riding conditions or your preferences. While all three ultimately produce maximum engine output at the high end, fine control over each mode’s level of throttle response and torque characteristics empowers you to ride with greater confidence and pleasure, especially when fully turning the throttle grip to accelerate from a slightly open position.

Bi-directional Quick Shift System
When activated, this system lets you shift up or down without operating the clutch lever while in motion. Features include clean upshifts with smooth acceleration and downshifts that are also quick and easy, thanks in part to automatic blipping and engine braking working together. The gear shift linkage system load rate is optimised to provide a solid, satisfying click with each shift that assures you the gearbox has responded immediately to your action.

Suzuki Traction Control System (STCS)
Designed to help prevent the rear wheel from slipping, this system reduces stress and fatigue while instilling greater confidence in controlling your ride. You can select from three active modes to control how quickly the system takes effect and how proactive it is in limiting wheel spin, or you can opt to run with it turned off.

Two-Mode ABS
The Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) contributes to more stable braking by helping prevent the wheels from locking up, even under hard braking. There are two mode settings. Mode 1 provides minimal intervention while Mode 2 intervenes more proactively.

Suzuki Easy Start System
One quick press of a button lets you start the engine. As a function used on every outing, Easy Start makes your riding experience all the more pleasurable and convenient.

Touring Comfort and Everyday Convenience
The chassis is engineered to deliver great cornering performance and provide sure and stable handling under all riding environments. Every aspect of its design also prioritises comfort while minimising fatigue when touring for long distances. At its core, the strong steel frame provides excellent straight-line stability, contributes to agile handling and performs well at motorway speeds, while at the same time featuring the right amount of flex to help maximise comfort on long rides or when passing over rural trails. The seat rails are built to ably support the added weight of a passenger or loaded top and side cases, and they feature a narrow profile that helps you better control the bike with your legs. The lightweight construction of the uniquely shaped aluminium swingarm contributes to a smoother, more comfortable ride by enhancing trackability and rear suspension response.

Chassis Geometry Optimised for On-road Comfort
The V-STROM 800RE’s chassis geometry is engineered to provide maximum stability, controllability and comfort on long-distance touring runs. Keen attention was devoted to optimising the riding position. Related details include a dedicated handlebar position that creates a slight forward lean and an overall riding position that is more comfortable and advantageous for road riding, enabling you to easily shift your weight and control the bike when negotiating tight corners at speed. In addition, the seat height of 825mm helps make it easier to plant your feet firmly on the ground when stopped. Showa SFF-BP* (Separate Function Fork – Big Piston) suspension delivers a smooth, controllable ride. Putting the power to the pavement are new 7-spoke cast aluminium wheels shod with Dunlop tyres engineered exclusively for the V-STROM 800RE. The 19-inch front tyres and 17-inch rear tyres help realise agile handling, solid grip and high-speed stability. Sure stopping power and controllable braking performance is provided by four-piston radial-mount brake calipers mated with 310mm outer diameter dual discs up front, and a 260mm outer diameter disc with a single-piston pin-slide caliper in the rear.

Comfort is in the Details
The V-STROM 800RE seat is designed for comfort and freedom of movement on long touring runs. It features a dense foam cushion and durable solid-mount design that ably handles weight shifts as you change position and stands up well to input load from the road surface. And the V-STROM logo embossed on the seat surface adds a pleasing design accent. Rubber-covered aluminium rider footpegs provide comfort when touring for long distances. The rear carrier with integrated passenger grab bars is handy for carrying extra gear or mounting a genuine accessory top case. Additional comfort and convenience come from knowing that the 20L fuel tank capacity extends your riding range between refueling stops. The relatively tall height-adjustable windscreen for the V-STROM 800RE features a shape and size defined by extensive wind tunnel testing and analysis that helps reduce fatigue on long rides by cutting wind noise and preventing buffeting.

Purposeful Electrical Design
The V-STROM 800RE adopts a custom 5-inch colour TFT multifunction instrument panel. Clearly legible high-quality information displays keep you fully aware of all the bike’s systems and settings, and supply vital real-time operating status information. The tachometer does double duty as a programmable rpm indicator that blinks when the engine reaches a preset speed, and the TFT includes a function that lets you display large pop-up alerts and warnings. Manual or automatic settings for switching between the day (white) and night (black) display modes let you maximise visibility at any hour and in any riding situation.

Distinctive LED Lighting
The vertically stacked pair of hexagonal LED headlights topped by an LED position light helps create a slim, compact face with a thoroughly modern look that symbolises Suzuki design and a new era of sophisticated adventure styling. Compact LED indicators and an LED taillight also help ensure clear visibility and practical durability.

USB Port for Easy Charging
A USB (Type-A) port built into the left side of the multifunction instrument panel provide up to 5V output voltage and 2A maximum current
