Build a bike


All roads

The V-STROM 800 combines optimum performance with comfort and handling ease that make even the longest rides all the more enjoyable. Highly controllable and agile, it is also fun and practical in daily use around town.
A capable long-distance tourer, the V-STROM 800 represents a new entry into the mid-size adventure category. While the V- STROM 800DE was specialized to excel at riding on gravel and other loose road surfaces, the V- STROM 800 evolves the chassis in the direction of providing maximum comfort and performance for long-distance touring and high-speed riding. Highly capable at highway speeds or when exploring less travelled routes, it is equally as enjoyable and practical to ride daily around town for work and play.

The V-STROM 800 features Suzuki’s parallel twin 776cm3 DOHC 4-valve-per-cylinder engine, a rugged steel frame, and suspension tuned to maximize straight-line stability and cornering performance. Every aspect of the design is geared to deliver a satisfying experience to riders who desire more power than offered by the 650cm3 class and who desire the ability to tour comfortably, no matter how far or wide they wish to journey.

The chassis and free-revving engine respond faithfully in a non-assertive fashion that makes the rider’s style and preferences the focus of riding pleasure on every outing. Riders can easily tap its full potential and enjoy a pure riding experience they will continue to enjoy for many years. The new V-STROM 800 is ready to enrich the lives of its owners and serve as a dependable partner, wherever its rider wishes to go.

Where performance converges

Satisfying Power That Makes Every Outing Exciting

The 776cm3 parallel twin engine that powers the V-STROM 800 delivers a fine balance of smooth, controllable power and free-revving 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 Cross Balancer

Developed specifically for the 776cm3 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 realize a lightweight powerplant that is more compact from front to rear.

* Patent granted in Japan for biaxial primary balancer that positions its two balancers at 90° to the crankshaft.

Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S)

The Suzuki Intelligent Ride System (S.I.R.S.) features a collection of advanced electronic systems developed to assist you and help in optimizing performance characteristics to suit your changing riding needs and preferences. By making the V-STROM 800 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.

Mode A (Active)

Delivers the sharpest throttle response as you open the throttle. Torque characteristics are finely tuned to deliver exciting acceleration as the throttle is opened.

Mode B (Basic)

Features softer throttle response and a more linear power delivery curve as you open the throttle. Settings are tuned to help make the bike more controllable and a good fit for everyday riding.

Mode C (Comfort)

Offers yet softer throttle response and more gentle torque characteristics. This mode is useful when riding on wet or slippery surfaces.

  • 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 optimized 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. Note: Traction Control System is not a substitute for the rider’s throttle control. It cannot prevent loss of traction due to excessive speed when entering turns, or while braking. Nor can it prevent the front wheel from losing traction.

  • Ride-by-wire Electronic Throttle System

    This cable-free system leverages the onboard ECM to finely control the relationship between throttle action and engine output characteristics. Individual settings are tuned to optimize output to match throttle grip action, particularly when first opening the throttle. This improves controllability and provides faithful response.

  • Low RPM Assist

    By ensuring smoother and easier starts, this function helps you control the bike more easily in stop-and-go traffic. It uses TI-ISC (Throttle-body Integrated Idle Speed Control) to help maintain engine idle speed as you release the clutch lever while launching from a standing start, or when riding at low speeds.

  • 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. Note: ABS is not designed to shorten the braking distance. ABS cannot prevent wheel skidding caused by braking while cornering. Please drive carefully and do not overly rely on ABS.

  • 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.

Engineered for Touring Comfort and Riding Pleasure

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 prioritizes comfort while minimizing fatigue when touring for long distances. At its core, the strong steel frame provides excellent straight-line stability, contributes to nimble handling and performs well at highway speeds, while at the same time featuring the right amount of flex to help maximize 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 aluminum swingarm contributes to a smoother, more comfortable ride by enhancing trackability and rear suspension response.


Chassis Geometry Optimized for On-road Comfort

The V-STROM 800’s chassis geometry is engineered to provide maximum stability, controllability and comfort on long-distance touring runs. Keen attention was devoted to optimizing the riding position. Related details include a dedicated handle position that creates a slight forward lean and an overall riding position that is more comfortable and advantageous for street 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.

Adjustable Hitachi Astemo (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 aluminum wheels shod with Dunlop tires engineered exclusively for the V-STROM 800. The 19-inch front tire and 17-inch rear tire help realize nimble 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 800 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 aluminum 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 800 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.
