Suzuki has officially announced the price of the V-Strom 800DE today in India as it costs Rs. 10.30 lakh (ex-showroom, introductory) and it will be increased in a couple of months’ time. Displayed at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024 last month, the adventure tourer has been doing trial runs for several months already and it has been positioned in a way to compete directly with the recently launched Honda Transalp 750 and Triumph Tiger 850 Sport.

The Suzuki V-Strom 800DE derives power from a new 776 cc inline DOHC twin-cylinder liquid-cooled fuel-injected engine, which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 84.3 hp and 78 Nm of peak torque. It is paired with a six-speed transmission while the slipper/assist clutch comes as standard. The adv uses the same steel frame found in the GSX-8S.

However, changes have been made to suit its touring and adventure needs as the sub-frame is longer and more rigid. The motorcycle boasts a seat height of 855 mm and tips the weighing scale at 230 kg while the fuel tank capacity stands at 20 litres and ground clearance at 220 mm. The braking duties are handled by 310 mm twin disc brakes at the front with four-piston floating brake callipers.


The rear features a single 260 mm disc with a single-piston calliper, both assisted by a dual-channel ABS system with switchable rear ABS. The 2024 Suzuki V-Strom 800DE is suspended on adjustable upside down front forks and a preload adjustable monoshock at the back – both having a travel of 220 mm. The V-Strom 800DE runs on 21-inch front and 17-inch rear spoked wheels with Dunlop Trailmax Mixtour tubed tyres.

The features list comprises an aluminium swingarm, LED headlamp, four ride modes, a bi-directional quickshifter, three tractional control modes, a five-inch TFT instrument console, etc. The Suzuki Easy Start system enables the motorcycle to be started easily and the Low Rpm Assist increases the engine rpm while starting from standstill.


The middleweight adventure tourer is priced competitively as the Transalp costs Rs. 11 lakh and the Triumph Tiger 850 Sport at close to Rs. 12 lakh (ex-showroom). Another rival, the BMW F850 GS, is priced up to Rs. 13.75 lakh (ex-showroom).
