It also gets an aluminum bash plate, adjustable footrests, panniers with 37-liter storage, and a gasket system to safeguard the contents from dust and water.
Fact: Power and performance
The Suzuki V-Strom 1050 XT PRO draws power from a Euro 5-compliant 1,037cc, liquid-cooled, 90-degree V-twin, four-stroke engine which generates 106hp of maximum power at 8,500rpm and 100Nm peak torque at 6,000rpm. The mill comes paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Safety: What about safety and suspension setup?
To ensure the safety of the rider, the Suzuki V-Strom 1050 XT PRO comes equipped with disc brakes on both the front and the rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling on roads.
Meanwhile, suspension duties on the adventure tourer are managed by inverted telescopic forks on the front side, and link-type forks on the rear end.

In Italy, the Suzuki V-Strom 1050 XT PRO carries a price-tag of €15,390 (roughly Rs. 13.31 lakh). It is unclear when this bike will make its way to India, as the company has not launched the BS6-compliant V-Strom 1050 XT yet.
