The bike also features a large windscreen to provide optimal wind protection during long rides, as well as handguards to shield your hands from debris.
One of the standout features of this model is its advanced electronic suite, which includes a traction control system, multiple riding modes, and cruise control. These features allow riders to customize their riding experience according to the terrain and weather conditions, ensuring maximum control and safety.
Performance and Engine
At the heart of the V-Strom 1050DE is a powerful 1,037cc V-twin engine that delivers impressive performance both on and off-road. This engine generates a thrilling 107 horsepower and 74 lb-ft of torque, providing ample power to conquer any terrain. Whether you’re cruising along the highway or navigating through challenging off-road trails, the V-Strom 1050DE’s engine will never disappoint.
The bike also comes equipped with a smooth-shifting six-speed transmission that allows for precise gear changes. Additionally, its lightweight aluminum frame provides excellent stability and maneuverability, making it easy to handle in various riding conditions.
Comfort and Ergonomics
Long-distance rides require comfort, and the V-Strom 1050DE delivers just that.
