Suzuki has shown the color options available on its 2021 V-Strom 1050 and V-Strom 1050XT, with bikes arriving in dealerships now.
Launched last year, the range-topping V-Strom 1050XT comes complete with three selectable engine maps, traction control (with three modes), lean angle-sensitive ABS with two modes, linked brakes with slope and load-dependent control and hill hold, plus cruise control.
According to Suzuki in a statement revealed over the weekend, the V-Strom remains available in the popular orange and white, DR750-inspired livery.
“But for 2021 it is joined by a classy, steely grey with blue decals and blue and grey seat, completed by blue spoked wheels,” it explained, “An updated yellow option also features, unashamedly influenced by the firm’s RM-Z motocross range, with a black tank and gold rims. Gold rims also feature on an otherwise all-black version, bar subtle grey and gold decals.
The V-Strom 1050 uses the same 107PS V-twin engine and many of the same electronics features as the XT but swaps the spokes for cast-aluminum wheels and loses the standard-fit engine bars and handguards. It is available in a bold red and black livery.
The new-for-2021 colours on the V-Strom 1050XT also apply to the Tour edition, which adds black three-piece aluminum luggage as standard with 112 liters of storage space.
