The engine is mounted on a lightweight yet rigid aluminum twin-spar frame which is paired with a modern swingarm.

The Suzuki V-Strom 1000 sits on front 110/80 R19 M/C 59H and rear 150/70 R17 M/C 69H, tubeless tires that are paired with an advanced suspension system for a sharp steering and first class stability.
