Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Suzuki is gearing up to showcase its list of products at the upcoming EICMA 2019. The company has been sharing a few teaser videos hinting at the upcoming products, one of which shows the 2020 V-Strom 1000.
The video indicates that the motorcycle has undergone a complete overhaul. It gets a new front end which bears a resemblance to the company’s older DR Big model. It gets an LED headlamp in place of the previous generation’s halogen bulb setup. It also gets a bigger adjustable windscreen than before.
Suzuki seems to also have redesigned the fuel tank to make it slimmer, though it retains its basic shape. The motorcycle also gets a split-seat setup in place of its single-seat along with a new paint scheme called Candy Daring Red. Suzuki has also replaced the semi-digital instrument cluster with a fully digital unit. This instrument cluster is speculated to be an LCD unit instead of a TFT display.
The teaser video also indicates a new engine casing and exhaust system, which could mean that Suzuki has retuned the engine to comply with the European emission norms. Currently, the motorcycle is powered by a 1037cc 4-stroke liquid-cooled DOHC 90˚ V-twin engine which makes 99 PS of maximum power and 103 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
