Suzuki has finally launched the V-Strom 800DE at an introductory price of Rs 10.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Suzuki V-Strom 800DE engine, features, delivery details

The V-Strom 800DE is powered by Suzuki’s new liquid-cooled, 776cc, 270-crank parallel-twin engine, which is rated for 84.3hp and 78Nm. A 6-speed gearbox is mated to this new mill and the bidirectional quickshifter is standard.

The V-Strom 800 DE features the same steel frame as its newly unveiled naked sibling but its subframe has been lengthened and made tougher for coping with the extra load of a pillion as well as luggage. With its 20-litre fuel tank brimmed, the V-Strom 800DE weighs 230kg, while seat height is a relatively tall 855mm.

One disappointment here is that unlike the erstwhile V-Strom 650XT, and like its closest Japanese rival the Honda Transalp 750, the spoked wheels on the 800DE come shod with tubed Dunlop Mixtour rubber.

A comprehensive number of electronic aids are standard: a bi-directional quickshifter, four riding modes (including a Gravel mode), three traction control settings and dual-channel ABS. 

At its introductory price of Rs 10.30 lakh, the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE is priced below its chief rival – the Honda Transalp 750 (Rs 11 lakh). Bookings are open at all Suzuki big-bike dealerships and it is available in three colours – Champion Yellow No. 2, Glass Matte Mechanical Gray and Glass Sparkle Black.
