The 2022 Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT Is Ready for Any Adventure
The Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT is a more off-road-oriented iteration of the standard V-Strom 1050. Despite no significant updates for 2022, it remains one of the most capable models in the 2022 Suzuki line-up. Meanwhile, the V-Strom 1050XT Adventure is essentially the same motorcycle with the addition of heated grips, auxiliary lights, and aluminum panniers as standard.
Across the border in Canada, the V-Strom 1050XT is called the V-Strom 1050XA, and the 1050XT Adventure is referred to as the 1050XAA. Apart from the suffix, nothing differentiates the bikes from their American counterparts.
The V-Strom 1050XT made its debut at EICMA 2019, replacing the Japanese company’s aging V-Strom 1000 as the flagship Suzuki adventure motorcycle. The update introduced a Euro5-compliant, 1,037cc, liquid-cooled, V-twin engine that produces 106hp and 74 lb-ft of torque.
Like the standard V-Strom 1050, the 1050XT and 1050XT Adventure get multiple rider aids, including Suzuki Traction Control System (with four levels of adjustment), Suzuki Drive Mode Selector (that offers three engine power modes), an Easy Start System, and a Low RPM Assist feature. The bikes also feature cruise control, hill hold control, and a six-axis IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) that works alongside the electronics.
Other features that differentiate them from the base motorcycle are handguards, a height-adjustable windshield, an engine guard, and tubeless, wire-spoke wheels. The rest of the bike, from the inverted, fully adjustable fork and a preload-adjustable mono-shock to the Tokico 4-piston front caliper and a Nissin 2-piston caliper at the rear, are shared between all the iterations of the V-Strom 1050.
The 2022 Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT starts at $14,849 USD / $16,599 CAD.
