Dec 26, 2023

BREA, CA – November 9, 2022 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – The resounding success of the V-Strom product line has opened a new chapter with the all-new 2023 V-STROM 800DE line. A new product destined to advance a rider's adventure. The growth and evolution of the V-STROM series has continued since the line's introduction twenty years ago. The new 800 V-STROMs feature the same all-around capabilities as Suzuki's recently launched V-STROM 1050DE, but in a smaller displacement bike, offering middleweight performance, precise handling, and a wide set of features.

The V-STROM's enduring popularity since 2002 has resulted in strong global sales results. To date, worldwide sales have totaled more than 440,000 units. And now the all-new V-STROM 800DE is ready to break new ground once again.

With the all-new V-STROM 800DE, Suzuki focused on advancing a rider's adventure, while delivering on the needs of a broader V-STROM customer base. In response to these demands, Suzuki engineers’ objective was to design the ideal adventure package, with engine and frame size optimized for spirited adventure riding. Offering features that advance pure riding excitement no matter the adventure. A new level of versatility and performance was the goal.

To realize these diverse needs, multiple optimization tests were fielded, and consumer feedback was analyzed and implemented to achieve a balance between several factors. The new V-STROM 800DE's design and specs were finalized through this strategic and constructive process. Resulting in an ideal package for riders.

With the ideal package realized, the V-STROM 800DE features Suzuki's brand-new parallel twin 776cc DOHC, 4-valve-per-cylinder engine, a rugged new steel frame, the longest amount of suspension travel, and the tallest ground clearance of any V-STROM model ever.

Every aspect of the design is geared to satisfy riders demanding more power than a 650cc class bike may deliver, with the ability to tour comfortably, and confidently explore riding adventures no matter the road.

The V-STROM 800DE's is designed to "Advance Your Adventure." This conveys the V-STROM 800DE makes every ride feel like an interesting adventure, the type of adventure riders find inspiring and fun, whether that ride is a simple commute, conquering a scenic fire road, or experiencing an epic cross-country tour.

The V-STROM 800DE builds on the solid legacy earned by other models in the V-STROM family yet offers something different for riders seeking more power and advanced features than on the V-STROM 650.

Highlighted V-STROM 800DE features include increased suspension travel and taller ground clearance, wide tapered aluminum handlebars, a uniquely shaped aluminum swingarm, a 21-inch front wheel, inverted front forks, and a color TFT LCD multifunction instrument panel. All advancing adventure seamlessly.

The V-STROM 800DE also features advanced electronic control systems such as Suzuki Drive Mode Selector, the Suzuki Traction Control System* with G (Gravel) mode, Rear ABS** OFF mode, and Suzuki's Bi-directional Quick Shift system.

The concept is also clearly reflected in the V- STROM 800DE's thoroughly modern and aggressive adventure styling.

An all-new 776 cc parallel-twin DOHC engine using a 270-degree crankshaft configuration helps deliver tractable performance and a broad powerband.

The V-STROM 800DE's 270-degree crankshaft configuration helps deliver torquey performance while the Suzuki Cross Balancer, the first of its type on a production motorcycle, contributes to smooth operation and a compact, lightweight engine design.

*The Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider's throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when the rider enters a turn and/or applies the brakes. Neither can it prevent the front wheel from losing grip

**Depending on road surface conditions, such as wet, loose, or uneven roads, braking distance for an ABS-equipped vehicle may be longer than for a vehicle not equipped with ABS. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.
