Suzuki has re-entered the middleweight adventure bike category with the all-new parallel twin V-Strom 800DE. In typical V-Strom fashion, it's a touring machine that's also easy to get along with as a daily rider. Its V-twin predecessor, the V-Strom 650, was just as comfortable on the morning commute as it was on gravel roads.
The new V-Strom 800 is setup with a 21-inch front and an 18-inch rear wheel combination. It also offers longer travel suspension, with 220 mm front and rear. Its new 776 cc parallel twin engine produces 83hp/ 78nm. These changes add up to the new V-Strom 800DE placing more emphasis on off-tarmac adventure touring without compromising its day-to-day usability.
SW-MOTECH offers the owners of this all-round motorcycle a wide range of accessories to set the bike up for their next trip, big or small.
"Hard or soft luggage?"
This divisive question is often top-of-mind with adventure riders when buying a luggage system. SW-MOTECH offers the perfect solution for both camps and has now brought a third option into play with the new DUSC cases. DUSC cases are extremely lightweight due to the ABS material and are extremely versatile. The DUSC cases are equally at home on or off the pavement and can be used interchangeably as a top case or side case.
Equipped with the PRO Side Carriers, riders can switch between all three SW-MOTECH luggage solutions. The PRO Side Carriers are designed to fit the rear of the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE to keep the overall width of the bike as narrow as possible after attaching panniers. The entire carrier rack can also be removed in about a minute using the QUICK-LOCK one-quarter turn fasteners.
A DUSC side case set is available for the V-Strom 800DE which includes the DUSC M (33 liters) and L (41 liters) cases and the matching PRO side carriers. SW-MOTECH also offers a top case system which includes the DUSC L and the matching ADVENTURE-RACK luggage carrier.
For aluminum panniers, SW-MOTECH offers the TRAX ADV aluminum cases in black and silver which fit the same PRO Side Carriers. The cases are made of 1.4 mm thick aluminum and are completely waterproof and dustproof. They have a capacity of 37 or 45 liters. With the TRAX ADV Top Case on the ADVENTURE RACK, the packing volume can be expanded by another 38 liters. All three cases offer a total of 120 liters of storage space.
For soft luggage advocates, they can equip their V-Strom 800 DE with the Sysbag WP bags. The large L models with 40 liters of volume also mount to the same PRO Side Carrier. Alternatively, the smaller S and M models could be setup on a different carrier system, the SLC Side Carrier. All SysBag WP bags are completely waterproof and coordinate with all bags from the PRO line and the newly redesigned DryBag models.
The PRO Line—Tank to Tail
Speaking of the PRO line, a full line of tank bags and tail bags can be the perfect stand-alone solution or supplement a full luggage system. Whether it's a quick day ride or a multi-week tour, SW-MOTECH has several sizes of rear bags and tank bags to fit any ride.
The PRO Tank Ring System allows PRO tank bags on and off the bike in seconds thanks to a magnetic guide. The PRO Trail Tank Bag holds between 13 and 18 liters without negatively affecting the steering angle or the standing position in rough terrain. Using a MOLLE system, additional accessories such as a smartphone drybag or a PRO Pocket, can be attached to the tank bag's lid.
The PRO Rearbag and PRO Roadpack rear bags can be secured to the rear of the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE with SW-MOTECH's patented lashing system. The PRO Rackpack is held securely on the ADVENTURE RACK. These rear luggage solutions can provide anywhere from 8 to 42 liters of volume.
Protection for Rider and Motorcycle
As an all-round motorcycle, the Suzuki V-Strom 800DE feels at home in any terrain. To ensure that the motorcycle and rider are optimally protected, SW-MOTECH offers comprehensive protection accessories. For the heart of the motorcycle—the 776 cc parallel-twin engine—an engine guard made of a robust aluminum alloy was developed to function as a skid plate. This protects the engine, manifold and oil filter from stone chips and damage in off-road use.
Crash bars are designed to protect the sides of the engine and the fairing from damage in the event of a fall, while a crash pad kit protects the front axle. KOBRA or BBSTORM hand guards keep wind, rain, sun and branches off the rider's hands. In the event of a crash, they protect brake and clutch levers.
Ride in Comfort and Safety
SW-MOTECH offers a range of ergonomic products to make adjustments for each individual rider. In addition to an EVO footrest kit, the portfolio includes adjustable shifters, brake pedals and handlebar risers and relocations. For off-road use, a side stand foot extension and a foot brake lever extension are available.
EVO fog lights and high-beam auxiliary lighting systems round out the range of accessories and provide added active and passive driving safety.
