The V-STROM 800DE adopts a custom 5-inch color TFT LCD multi-information screen with night and day modes, accompanied by a convenient USB port in the left side of the meter cluster. The vertically stacked pair of distinctive hexagonal LED headlights, position lighting, taillight and turn signals ensure clear visibility and practical durability.

The V-STROM 800DE features highly rigid new steel frame designed to provide all the strength needed for negotiating rougher trails, to provide excellent straight-line stability, to contribute to nimble handling, and to perform well at highway speeds when touring for long distances.

The solid mount seat of the Suzuki V-STROM 800DE allows the rider freedom of movement while its wide tapered handlebars offer comfort and shock absorption on unpaved surfaces. The short windscreen with 3-step height adjustment maximizes visibility and protection when exploring country trails or gravel roads. Solid grab bars on each side offer passengers a firm grip and add a tough looking design accent. Integrated with the rear carrier, these bars facilitate the mounting of optional top cases made available as genuine accessories.
