Conquer city traffic as easy as you scale mountains. Roar down new highways. Explore your taste for discovery on roads long untraveled. The 2015 V-Strom 1000 ABS Adventure was redesigned from the ground up last year and features many improvements over the previous V-Strom 1000. One of the newest changes or additions is Suzuki's first Traction Control System on a motorcycle which the V-Strom proudly carries. Other features that were improved or redesigned are the engine, fuel injectors, magneto, idle speed control, radiator, clutch, transmission, exhaust, suspension, and much more.
More than a decade ago, Suzuki developed the V-Strom 650. The motorcycle offered incredible versatility, comfort, and a fun to ride character. The well-balanced package included an incredibly versatile V-twin engine and lightweight aluminium chassis. Sharing the spirit of the globally successful V-Strom 650 ABS, the all-new, V-Strom 1000 will deliver fun, excitement and versatility to the open class rider who seeks a new world of motorcycling adventure. Suzuki’s traction control system continuously monitors the front and rear wheel speeds, the throttle position sensor, the crank position sensor, and the gear position sensor. It quickly reduces engine output when it detects wheel spin. It controls the engine output by managing the ignition timing and air delivery every 4 milliseconds.
The rider can select three modes 1, 2, and off. Modes 1 and 2 differ in terms of sensitivity. Mode 1 has lower sensitivity; it allows a certain degree of rear wheel spin. Mode 2 has higher sensitivity; the system effects traction control sooner. 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. The light and compact Anti-Lock brake system monitors the wheel speed as much as 50 times per wheel rotation and matches the stopping power to the available traction. The 9-way adjustable windscreen has been designed through extensive wind-tunnel testing. A 12V DC outlet is located below the instrument panel is for ease of use and is ideal for powering a navigation unit or charging your mobile device. The seat is shaped for comfort and the sidewalls have a high-grip texture. The seat height has also been lowered compared to previous years so riders can easily put their feet on the ground.
A totally redesigned, liquid-cooled 1000cc V-twin engine produces effortless acceleration along with a strong V-twin rumble. Slim and lightweight aluminium frame, thickly padded seat and an adjustable windscreen provides an easy, comfortable, and fun to ride character. Performance-inspired radial mount front brake caliper with Antilock Brake System provides riders confidence in braking on various road conditions. The V-Strom 1000 ABS also features an inverted front fork and an easy to adjust single shock style rear suspension. Suzuki’s advanced traction control system is equipped for enhanced sport riding, performance, and the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence. An all new luggage system was designed and tested in harmony with the big V-Strom’s overall development. The luggage system provides easy installation, a narrow overall width when installed, and a clean look when detached.
A 1037cc, 90-degree V-twin engine is designed to get you where you want to go. Whether it is around town, on the open highway, or down the road less traveled. Increased cooling capacity has eliminated the oil cooler and as a net result, weight saving. Fuel injection by Suzuki's original Suzuki Dual Throttle Valve system enables smooth power delivery and optimal combustion efficiency. At ₹14.95 lakhs the 2015 Suzuki V-Strom is not for everyone as outlined earlier. But someone who is looking to amplify his/her desire to meet the horizon while occasionally trailing a path that would find the V-Strom a perfect match for their desires.
Riding the V-Strom proved to be truly enjoyable, it draws another analogy.
