Suzuki Introduces 2024 V-Strom 800 & V-Strom 800 Touring

2024 V-STROM 800 & V-STROM 800 TOURING [678]

New Additions to the V-STROM 800 Line Enhance
Adventure Touring Options

BREA, CA – October 6, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Suzuki Motor USA (Suzuki) welcomes two new V-STROM 800 models that build on the momentum from the successful, off-road-focused adventure motorcycle, the V-STROM 800DE. The 2024 V-STROM 800 and 800 Touring leverage the DE’s stellar engine and chassis platform while focusing on the needs of more street-oriented riders.

These two new models- the V-STROM 800 and V-STROM 800 Touring extend the Suzuki V-STROM line, and host street and long-distance touring-focused features. Each appeals to riders looking for a performance-minded yet versatile middleweight motorcycle with adventure in mind. These new V-STROM 800 models along with the 800DE and 800DE Adventure offer four distinct options targeting the entire middleweight adventure target audience.

With the momentum from the dirt-focused Suzuki V-STROM 800DE’s introduction last November continuing to grow, the V-STROM 800 and V-STROM 800 Touring are distinctly engineered to provide superb comfort and performance for commuting, sport or long-distance touring, and occasional dirt road use.

The Suzuki V-STROM 800 features a modern Metallic Matte Steel Green color.

Highly capable at highway speeds or when exploring less-traveled routes, these new models are equally entertaining and practical to ride daily around town for fun, laying down miles across the continent on a tour, through spirited canyon rides, or for commuting to work.

Each is powered by the new-generation 776cc DOHC parallel-twin engine used in the V-STROM 800DE and the Suzuki GSX-8S. These new V-STROM models’ engine delivers a precise balance of smooth, controllable power at low engine speeds as well as a free-revving rush of performance when needed.

The engine’s 270-degree crankshaft configuration provides the power characteristics and an exciting exhaust note. The patented Suzuki Cross Balancer system contributes to smooth operation and a compact, lightweight engine design.

2024 Suzuki V-STROM 800 Touring

The 2024 Suzuki V-STROM 800 Touring features hand guards and a 35-liter top case as standard.
It arrives in elegant Glass Sparkle Black paintwork.

The V-STROM 800s’ rugged steel backbone frame takes advantage of the engine’s compact size, resulting in a chassis both nimble and steady. The V-STROM 800 and 800 Touring’s new SHOWA SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork – Big Piston) inverted front fork smoothly controls front wheel movement, while the SHOWA rear shock absorber employs a remote, hand-operated hydraulic spring preload adjuster so suspension tuning for a passenger or cargo takes just seconds.

The suspension is tuned to maximize straight-line and cornering performance for street riding as well as light-duty off-road use. The front fork supports radially mounted NISSIN four-piston brake calipers that grasp a pair of 310mm stainless steel brake rotors. The front calipers and the rear caliper -with a 260mm rotor,  are monitored by a compact ABS** system. This ABS system offers a choice of two different mode settings the rider may choose for differing road conditions. The ABS system’s mode 1 provides minimal anti-lock brake intervention, while mode 2 provides more anti-lock brake intervention.

New seven-spoke cast aluminum wheels are shod with a 19-inch front and a 17-inch rear tire. Dunlop’s new D614F/D614 tubeless ADV tires were engineered exclusively for the V-STROM 800, and feature a new tread pattern and custom-engineered internal structure for superb pavement operation plus the ability to explore that new, unpaved road on occasion.

V-STROM 800DE, a full-color, 5-inch TFT LCD multifunction instrument panel

Like the V-STROM 800DE, a full-color, 5-inch TFT LCD multifunction instrument panel provides the rider access and on-the-fly control over the Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) suite of advanced electronic features that include the Suzuki Drive Mode Selector, the Suzuki Traction Control System*, and Suzuki’s Bi-Directional Quick Shift system.

Ride almost any distance in comfort and control thanks to a wide, vibration-damping, tapered handlebar, a supportive seat, and rubber-padded footpegs.

To carry the items riders may need quick access to, the V-STROM 800 Touring’s standard 35L top case uses the V-STROM’s ignition key for locking the lid or quick removal of the case from the rear carrier.
