Suzuki V-Strom 1050 XT PRO Unveiled
Suzuki introduced their off-roader model, the V-Strom 1050 XT Pro. It is the latest highest model and is currently only available in the Italian market. This top model looks rugged and comes with plenty of useful off-road accessories.
As far as features are concerned, the Suzuki V-Strom 1050 XT model will be fitted with a dedicated off-road package that includes a bash plate, engine guards, adjustable footpegs, and hard case panniers to hold more luggage on the track. This off-road bike also gets an aluminum engine bash plate in a bid to give enhanced safety to the engine, which is particularly built for the lower front cylinder position, oil philter, and exhaust system.
Even the V-Strom 1050 XT Pro gets some accessories that improve its off-road capabilities quite well. Compared to other XT models the bike gets a new and slightly different engine crash protector. This pro version comes with an aluminum sump guard and wide adjustable footpegs, to sum up.
An additional aluminum pannier of 37 liters increases the bike’s luggage carrying capacity by 74 liters. The panniers were set out with a very realistic approach. It’s having plastic-coated edges covered. It also gets a top opening system which helps in the tight spots to work. The bike still gets the same 1,037 cc, four-stroke, 90-degree liquid-cooled v-twin-engine which can produce a maximum power of 105 bhp at 8,500 rpm and a torque of 100 Nm at 6,000 rpm.
As of now, the bike has only been introduced to Italian markets. It comes with a €15,390 price tag that translates to €113.31 lakh. It was released in three options for painting-black, yellow, and the white livery two-tone color. The manufacturer has not released the base Suzuki V-Strom 1050 XT here for India, so the pro version is very far from a release.
