The latest Suzuki V-Strom 800DE has been released in the United States. The motorcycle premiered in several countries after being unveiled at the EICMA last year, with the US being the most recent. Here’s everything we know about it and when it might release in India.
The V-Strom 800DE is priced higher than the current V-Strom 650XT. It gets a new design with a more contemporary outlook. A transparent visor has been placed above the vertically stacked LED headlight, and a beak has been added below. Overall, aesthetic cues from the larger V-Strom 1050 are borrowed from the 800DE (sold overseas only).
