The updated BS6 Suzuki V-Strom 1050 may not be offered on sale in India yet, but it’s been now unveiled in Europe in some attractive new colours.
The new Suzuki V-Strom 1050 is not offered on sale in India yet
Suzuki Europe has introduced the 2021 Suzuki V-Strom 1050 in new colours, giving the flagship Suzuki adventure bike fresh appeal. The adventure touring model doesn’t get any mechanical updates yet. The Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT, with wire spoked wheels, standard engine bars and hand guards, and a centre stand, comes in four new attractive colours, while the standard V-Strom 1050, with most of the same electronic features, but with cast alloy wheels and without the engine bars and hand-guards, comes in a new colour option called Candy Daring Red/Glass Sparkle Black.

Suzuki Motorcycle India Private Limited (SMIPL) did offer the V-Strom 1050 on sale in India up until a few years ago, but right now, only the Suzuki V-Strom 650XT is offered in the India market. There’s no word yet, if Suzuki foresees a demand for the V-Strom 1050 to introduce it in India. Recently, Suzuki launched the updated Hayabusa in India at ₹ 16.40 lakh (Ex-showroom), and all 101 units of the first lot of Hayabusa bikes were sold off in just two days.
